Coming Up

Coming Up is a disco funk US & Canadian number one single released by Paul McCartney in the spring of 1980. I got into it when I found a disco re-edit by Justus K the other day. The video features 10 Paul and 2 Linda McCartneys and a drum kit print of “Plastic Mac Band” poking fun at John Lennon’s and Yoko Ono’s “Plastic Ono Band”. I’ve never been into the former Beatles music or his humor but here we go.

Nomi Ruiz, vocalist on the first Hercules & Love Affair album, released a new single with her band Jessica 6 today. I love Nomi’s voice, which is perfect for this pop/house song with a little bit of dance melancholy on top. Almost a year ago, I wrote about the first J6 single, Fun Girl – which has a fun video.
Jessica 6’s album, See The Light, will be out this May.

Another single got the remix treatment today – though streaming only – My House by Hercules & The Love Affair. This one is by Andy Butler’s former lover, Derrick Carter. He had previously remixed one of my favourite tracks from the first H&LA album, You Belong with Nomi on lead vocals. So, we heard this pairing before, but I can’t resist Derrick Carter’s bouncy Chicago beats. He turned My House up for a bigger dance floor.

Hotnuts Twincest

Thanks to all the twins and other creatures that made Hotnuts Twincest a truly incestuous night.

Fay Slift performed Get Outta My Way and Vivienne gave us a Total Eclipse of the Heart. Also, our favourite nurse got baked with a dope cake. Check all the pictures after the jump – 100 on flickr – lot’s of floor rolling fun.

The next Hotnuts is on February 26 and part of the month long 5 Year Beaver Birthday Celebrations. It’s going to be festive!
