Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Flaunt it - 1986


Ésta es mi breve opinión personal sobre el disco:Un imprescindible.SI.
Un álbum algo subestimado en su momento, pero hoy fundamental para documentar los años ochenta.
Rock and roll del siglo veintiuno, pero proveniente del pasado.Eso eran y son los SSS, con su vibrante sonido electrónico, rockero a la vez...punk y anti- punk.Del "No future" del punk, a la fascinación por la tecnología, la cultura del consumo, los videojuegos y la publicidad.Cínicos, transgresores, divertidos.
Mad Max y Elvis...
Ése es el cóctel triunfalista que vendían Sigue Sigue Sputnik.Guitarras filosas, samples de anuncios y de... Bach, secuencias y ritmos bailables y repetitivos (¡y apadrinados por GIORGIO MORODER!.)
Era y es inútil resistírseles.Hoy se bailan tan bien como en el 86.Por algo será.

SHE´S MY MAN

Flaunt It is the debut album by British band Sigue Sigue Sputnik. The album featured a remix of their #3 UK hit single "Love Missile F1-11", as well as "21st Century Boy". Flaunt It was unique in that the band sold off spots between songs for advertisements. Ultimately, ads for L'Oréal, i-D magazine, the short-lived London pirate television station NeTWork 21, and London's Kensington Market clothing shop Pure Sex were complemented by fictitious ads for the Sputnik Corporation and the (unreleased) Sigue Sigue Sputnik Computer Game; a spoken word advertisement (narrated by the Sputnik Corporation voiceover) for EMI closes the album. All original CD versions and the version released in Germany also include an ad for Tempo, a lifestyle magazine.The liner notes include small print ads for the various advertisers, as well.
