Luxxury "The Drunk EP"

This four-song EP is, from what I gather, a reissue of an earlier record. Or maybe it isn't. Either way, its history shouldn't bother you all that much, because it doesn't change the fact that this music is too sleazy for its own good. Yeah, it's rather randy, glam-laden techno that's hedonistic in every possible way, reminiscent of vintage My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. "All The Way" and "Disco Noir" both have a hint or two of Roxy Music mixed with New Order. "Disco Noir" borrows too much from "Blue Monday" for my taste. Still, this is well-done sleazy music made for sleazy guys with big hair and cheap sunglasses and the foolish girls who fall in love with them. Not bad, but I feel a little dirty now...
