There's a few artists getting their early 80s New York club sound funk on at the moment, a tricky thing to pull of when Tom Tom Club lies on one side of the dividing line and Madonna's Lucky Star on the other. Doing her Cristina with this Irish outfit is one Annie Tierney (hence that name), who some time in the middle ages (1998-99) was frontwoman with Chicks, who some may remember from glorious post-Kenickie cartoon pop-punk and an aborted attempt to record an album with Royal Trux producing. A Moroder-like beat pervades, the guitar is pleasingly squonky and the cool quotient is freeze-dried. Their album is out in Ireland at the end of the month.
