Holestar: The Queen Of Fucking Everything …




If you haven’t heard of Holestar yet, exactly WHERE HAVE …. YOU BEEN …?

Holestar is a gender bender with a liberation agenda you can dance to. The First Lady of the East London drag scene extends her beautifully lacquered fingers back into the world of music with a well overdue follow up to last year’s ‘NyLon Woman’ (‘You can see me in the East End, and catch me on the West Side …’) The Piers Remix was my number one WORK IT! track at the gym for a while.

This time round we have a whole EP, nattily named ‘The Queen Of Fucking Everything’ and it’s all wall to wall synth classique baby. Gimme …

The title track is curt, catchy and comic and sees our tranny with a fanny tearing strips of some uppity scene queen. Oh please, she had it coming. And it ends with laughing. I seriously love songs that do that.

Another Heartbeat’ is John Foxx bagging off with the lasses from Human League. It’s pocket calculator /asymmetric hair music and even has a little talky bit. YES!

The Insider’ is a wee shady gem of a track, like Bananarama in the interesting dark middle period they never had but really should’ve, and it’s a stand out for me.

Remember, electro drag disco is the new punk rock so support your DIY drag queens ...
