This one, I'm Excited About!, October 27, 2007
By Bill Board - Amazon Review
I've had...oh, SEVERAL copies of this album, but they just kept getting "stole out from under me" by other musicians. And, in all honesty, I have to admit that I'm only peripherally aware of most the other tracks on this album (MIGHTY impressive sidemen though, Steeley Dan for instance...) But that one opening track, "Shake Your Fiorucci" is as great a "disco sucks" comment as was Ian Hunter/Ellen Foley's "We Gotta Get Out Of Here." To wit, the chorus "...Shake your Fiorucci/Mixin' ludes & tookski/I know what you came here for, I can't use it/I love you, honey, but I just can't swindle this music." He says that, because after the first verse, the band plays the Stones' "Bitch," and after the second, Eric's "Layla," almost note-for-note perfectly. Ah, but next, Terence delivers the VERY BEST LINE in ALL of "eighties' music" (with but one exception, Geo Clinton's immortal "Bow-wow-wow-yippie-yo-yippie-yay"), when he almost-chants the incredible "Vitamin Q/Vitamin C/What are we all gonna grow up to be?/Get down." That one song is a stone GEM, (I'm gonna SAY this!) along the lines of "Gimme Shelter," "In My Life," "Whiter Shade Of Pale," "Tangled Up In Blue," "Charity Ball," or even "White Room." Don't believe me? Well, for once, I'm NOT writing a "negative review," am I? - and, look, just GET "Suzy" and let me know your reaction to "Fiorucci." You'll ("eighties," now) "fer sure" DIG what goes ON there...
