The golden age

I've got a real soft spot for one-man dance acts: Mylo, Mike Monday, Felix da Housecat, Fred Ball AKA Pleasure and now Antoine Harispuru AKA Golden Bug. The common thread throughout is a) they all have penises - which is just a coincidence, really - and b) they produce an album with all meat no filler. Golden Bug's Hot Robot which came out at the end of last year is covered in plaudits and, rather worryingly, is seen as the vanguard of new genre, nu-disco. I say worryingly, because labelling leads to stifling and ultimately dating. This album, let's say, has legs aplenty - legs for longevity and for dancing. It's like disco after a blowback, meaty, beaty big and bouncy. Try Barbie's Back, below. It's rude in EVERY sense.

Paris-based Golden Bug deserve Mylo proportioned recognition judging from this, their last single, Bisco...
