With one of the most arresting videos around supporting a fabulous piece of electro-inductrial rock Plastique grabbed my attention with all my senses.
Lead vocalist Anelise has a classic ‘dead’ vocal style al la Shirley Manson or even Nico and with a massive bass and drum lead and growling guitars this song of getting older but fighting back against expectations is terrific.
You almost get the feeling that Goldfrapp put into her ‘disco’ period of fighting against the norm and subverting it for her own uses – it ain’t ‘nice’ but it strikes many chords.
The song would be a monster on the dance floor but could just become an anthem for the exploited survivors of modern society.
