More on my favourite MEN…

the words about JD Samson’s MEN in this month’s print copy of The Fly are mine. cool:

Men
London, The Lexington
08/02/2011

Poster girl for uniqueness JD Samson springs passionately into mid winter London sporting block colours and buckets of enthusiasm for her performance/art collective, MEN.

The guitars are sharp, the bass is addictive and the Brooklyn trio’s accessible funk-disco gives JD’s niche lyrics about liberty and sexuality a mainstream audience.

It is the genuine onstage energy that sets MEN apart, proving that passion for a cause is the best way to pop.

‘Off Our Backs’ slickly blends into the bluntly-worded ‘Credit Card Babies’ and after just three songs the stage is invaded by excitable fans who become impromptu backing dancers (and singers).

Social commentary with a bounce .
