Coach, Are You Putting Me In? Cos My Agent Just Called And Said They Want Me To Walk For Jean Paul Gaultier SS84!
There's just enough flange on the guitar lead of Fatal Jamz' latest single "Jean Paul Gaultier" to set snobby archivists aflame. Is it power pop? Is it glam rock? Or is it the score to a Russian-doll-metafictional montage within a Tarantino-True-Romance-spoof (too many Tarantinos anyone?). Think prep school heartthrob who's both star basktball player, and lightning bolt track star, but also starcrossed gender neutral sex lover, and then out of nowhere he's a gamechanging runway model with a big decision -- does he fly to Paris in 20 minutes to make PFW S/S '84? Or have we gone too far into the Hollywood rabbit hole? Yes. Spoiler alert: the music's great in here. The Eddie Chacon photoshoot of recording artist Fatal Jamz, even better.
