When an email with “Nelson/New video” as its subject landed in my inbox this morning, I was filled with dread. Nelson is reuniting? Why, God why? Then, after I clicked (fucking yes) “display all images” in Gmail, I saw a picture of a bunch of greasy, effete poseurs. Has Nelson, the wonder twin duo of mid-80’s hair bland cheese rock, turned all Menudo on us, recruiting a new geneartion of sad sacks to prey on the tweens? No, this Nelson is a french band (ahh, of course) that plays a dark(er), dance(ier) mix of New Order and, well, New Order. Minus the insipid lyrics. And, much to my surprise, it’s not completely terrible.
New Nelson video?
