Sugar Rub

Sexy pop music is a thing of the past. Everyone knows that, thats why vinyl is still so popular. Its the real deal, you can feel it, smell it... "huhg!! Yes thats mint...M+!"

Sure Cheryl Cole & Co. look ok I suppose, but like an iPod, it add's up to not much more than a box of dead-eyed digital whores, its all so much not so fantastic plastic. When it comes to core roots glossy yet organic horniness, thats a thing left in the 70's it seems.

Like Zenda Jacks. This is how pop stars used to get the raw materials across to an audience, look at this live set-up, no miming here:

Would have loved to have seen that show. Didn't help Zenda's career any, the debut 45-Rub My Tummy, sank without charting, and that was more or less that. Damn shame.

'Sugar Me' by Lynsey De Paul(MAM Records,1972)

What's all this about? How did it ever become mainstream entertainment? Who the hell cares, i'm all for a comeback...
