Basswood Dollies - On Radio On TV
ElectroClash, Electropop What has happened Joel and John? Where did the hard, punky, electro with the straight forward attitude go? Have you gone religious or political correct perhaps? How could "I killed the butcher, and I did it for you, babe" change into "On the radio you can hear all about it...". Something must have happened, because this isn't nothing like your very special demo from 2005.

Perhaps it's Sophie Rimheden, who has produced this single that have put a spell on the boys and made them all nice and kind. But with this change of attitude, music and lyrics, the thing that charmed me from the beginning has atrophied to ordinary electro pop without anything special at all. None of the three tracks on this single appeal me. Please, find your way back to where you came from, you did it so great. I want to, once again, sing "Whore, Hooker, Prostitute!" and wave my arms frenetically.
