Motion Boys

Words by

Published October 10, 2008

It’s very scary when a contemporary band sound like seasoned professionals from another decade, like when Scissor Sisters wail home about the dear 1980’s. It’s even more terrifying when a new band are a carbon copy of a carbon copy and the Motion Boys sound a lot like the Scissor Sisters. Of course there are a lot of other acts you can throw into the cauldron like Elton John or Wham and mix it together in one big sickly, cheesy poison. The trouble is you want to slurp up a bit more because you know it’s bad for you and it becomes addictive. Even if ‘Hold Me Closer To Your Heart’ and ‘Five To Love’ have a couple of girly squeals that make you want to stand in front of the mirror singing into a pink glittery hairbrush, it would be much better to do this to Prince who knew the true essence of the 1980’s a lot better than these boys do.

THE VERDICT
The lights are broken on the 80’s disco ball
