The salient points
- Hercules & Love Affair are an art-disco 'collective' from New York, signed to DFA records (OBVIOUSLY).
- The band's mastermind is producer Andy Butler, who started his DJ career in a leather bar 'emceed' by hostess Chocolate Thunder Pussy. 'LOL'.
- Their first album featured guest spots from Antony Hegarty, who took a well-earned break from boo-hoo balladry to sing on one of the best songs of the decade.
- This, with Nomi out of Jessica 6, was a big poppers o'clock moment.
- By the time their second album came out, those vocalists had jumped ship and it seemed like cool online 'tastemakers' had lost interest.
- Which was a shame really, as the music was still good.
- That's pop.
