Scissor Sisters Artist Snapshot:

These New York art shock-rockers, formed in 2003, take camp icons like Elton John, the Bee Gees, and Billy Joel as their musical foundation for a sound that's rooted in the dance clubs of their hometown. On their debut, self-titled album they reinterpreted Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," castigated former mayor Rudy Giuliani, and hymned the city's gay cruising scene. More than a mere gay novelty act, their sophisticated sound draws on a wide range of musical influences from throughout the last three decades of the 20th century, a fact reinforced by their equally eclectic and ambitious sophomore album, 2006's TA-DAH, featuring the British #1 hit "I Don't Feel Like Dancing," penned specifically for them by the aforementioned John.

Product Notes

Those dismissing the self-titled Scissor Sisters as a product of New York's latest band fad are jumping to conclusions. Yes, there's a certain cabaret aspect to what they do, but that's not to dismiss them as frivolous nightclub entertainment. That's only half the story. "Comfortably Numb" may nod to gay disco but this eclectic bunch of fashionistas have more interesting reference points tucked up their puff sleeves. If anything, the prevailing mood here is sunny AM rock, the kind of thing you might have tuned into in 70s New Jersey. "Take Your Mamma Out," perhaps the first song about coming out to your mother in a gay club, and sung by Jake Shears like primetime Elton, is a cracker. So too "Tits on the Radio"--slick barroom boogie that takes a venomous swipe at New York's increasing conservatism. Best here, though, is the anthemic "It Can't Come Quickly Enough," a retro carve-up of Nick Kershaw and the Pet Shop Boys that's more powerful than it sounds. Ignore it at your peril. --Paul Tierney
