Performance Short, Sharp Shock Single Review
Short, Sharp Shock
Wait there, whoa whoa, where's Tom Selleck, I'm hallucinating, is that man in the distance revving a Corvette? And who let Marc Almond do the soundtrack? Or is it Marc himself? It's got bite, thundering bass, arch vocodered male lead vocals and backing straight from a Toyah B-Side. It has the lyric 'I need a short sharp shock, you're my electric chair'. God, it's so 80s I think it might actually take away milk monitors. And, like all models dated circa 1983 I am innately programmed to think it is incredible, like New Order but err, you know, good. Cut Copy? Hot Chip? Who? Dance music? Make mine 80s please.
