Men Without Pants – My Balloon

I’ve only ever given the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion time when a video of theirs wandered onto one of my late night music video marathons. It was never a happy occasion it must be said, they always struck me as ridiculously noisy without the slightest sense of melody. Probably way off the mark but that’s my uncultured take. So it came as a major surprise when I found myself all over this tune from a JSBE offshoot Men Without Pants (more embarrassing than hats). Gillian Rivers could a major reason; her feisty vocals flood the tune with an intensity that not even the ductile music can match. Think Shirley Manson with added femininity and you get the drift. Really looking forward to the video. KD
