It's been a minute since Shakespears Sister has released a thing. And by "a minute", I mean 27 years - at least with its original two members. Siobhan Fahey (of Bananarama fame) had other iterations of the band in the early 2000s and into the early 2010s, but it never truly went anywhere.
Fahey kicked out Marcella Detroit, best known prior to this to co-writing Eric Clapton's "Lay Down Sally" in 1993. Their last disk, Hormonally Yours, came out in 1992.
So here they are now, almost three decades later, and a year after a Bananarama reunion tour that went nowhere, with some new music. Granted I think it will be one or two songs for "greatest hits" disk, but.......it's something.
When I heard they were doing this, my first thought was "please don't suck, please don't suck, please don't suck....." ....and it doesn't.
The song more than nods to their relationship, or is my interpretation. And there is a run near the end of the song that I swear is being pulled from the song "Vivid" by Electronic. It's brief, but it's there.
Still, "All the Queen's Horses" is not bad for a 27 year absence.
