Chicks on Speed – “We Don’t Play Guitars”
Munich’s Chicks on Speed embodied the knowing performance art aspect of electroclash as well as anyone, with results that were deadpan hilarious. Here, on their best single, they describe what parts of rock stardom they are willing to perform, and which they are content to outsource. Rules established, rule broken. And like most everything here, terrific fun, if you’ll let it be.
