Queen city of the fourth dimension

Sexual ObjectsOoh la la – Davy Henderson’s latest troupe – The Sexual Objects – come on like a surprisingly unsurprising composite of the Fire Engines, Win and the Nectarine No. 9, with the edges rounded off, the surfaces slick with lubricant.  The whole doubles as a homage to Thin White Duke Station to station-era Bowie, with dabs of the glam that came before; it’s easy to assume that as for so many of his generation, the first alien pop star’s arrival on planet Earth was the young Davy’s wake-up call.  And now I see it – the song ‘Win’ on Young Americans.

If the Sexual Objects really are recording an LP with the Boards of Canada as is reported here, then that I’ve got to hear.  Absent since 2006 and the successive disappointments of The campfire headphase and the Trans Canada Highway EP), I hope that in passing some of Davy’s undiminished energy rubs off on the Boards boys and gets them back in action in their own right.
