With DJ Sammy and Basshunter as their top friends on Myspace, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Merzedes Club aspire to play sun drenched parties in the Balearic Islands. Barði Jóhannson, the producer behind the project, failed to score the Icelandic Eurovision entry for ‘Ho, Ho, Ho, We say Hey, Hey, Hey’ so it’s a failure on all counts. The act has sparked controversy for some scandalously vain stage performances, but unfortunately on record it’s not even half as interesting. Even taken as a joke, the irony won’t flip the frown upside down after you’ve listened to this. It’s unfortunately all tackiness without the wackiness – think Lasgo and not Junior Senior. Alternatively, think a big steaming pile of Europop shit. They can’t even be a one hit wonder.With DJ Sammy and Basshunter as their top friends on Myspace, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Merzedes Club aspire to play sun drenched parties in the Balearic Islands.
