We were just having a clearout of CDs over the weekend and found this release by Skandal, which came out last month.[youtube]u8vL9U7AZF0[/youtube] 'Everyday' is clearly a fairly unremarkable tune but we thought it probably important to state very clearly that the Skandal above — 'featuring Black The Ripper' — is not (that's NOT) the same Skandal who ten years ago wowed the lower reachers of the Top 100 with their sort-of-hit 'Champagne Highway'. [youtube]mCI12Lp6BUI[/youtube] We always felt that the phrase 'champagne highway' sounded deeply pervoramic, in the "what happened with the girl you went home with last night?" / "oh it was awful, she tried to let one out of the champagne halfway through" sort of sense.
Perhaps that was just us.
One begins to suspect that Skandal is an artist name cursed to land upon a mediocre musical artist or act once every ten years. What, we wonder, will the 2020 version of Skandal look and sound like? We will have to wait and see.
