Rip It Up-Orange Juice

Hand claps. Lazy jangle. Sub-Fantastic Voyage electro-bassy farts. If this song had an eensy bit more low-end, some rap dude could sample it for cash money. Richard X produced Annie's "Chewing Gum" clearly has a squiggly antecedent in this booty boondoggle. Shades of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love" in some of the minor noodies. Intermittent Prince "banernernernerner" chinga ching (from outer space). Lackadaisical bandmembers bouncing to the tracks that had already been laid. Edwyn Collins soulfully lisping arch arch lyrics Franz Ferdinand probably heard when in their nappies. Sadly, No, I am not joking.
