One of the fastest re-appearances in the history of Pop Occulture, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?’s new single “Bambi Act” is the shining example of Organ Pop that doesn’t fall apart into a mess of nostalgia or overt tweeness. For a genre that really hasn’t ever fared well in my opinion of it, “Bambi Act” as well as their previous single “Sheep” come alive and have a power behind them that is undeniable.
Already becoming one of the few bands I bother reading their press releases, because most just aren’t entertaining. HYESTJFAVHS’s Ekku Lintunen describes the song as follows –
“A man falls for another man. Man goes for a sex change operation, and now as a woman, charms her beloved; soon, we can hear their wedding bells. Happiness proves to be false, and she’s ultimately rejected. Shocked by this dreadful event, unhappy incidents occur, and through wrong choices she ends up on the street turning tricks with her decaying body. What’s your interpretation?”
Well I don’t know that my interpretation would be, but that might not have been the first thing to spring to mind. “Bambi Act” officially marks the fact that I’m a huge fan of the band and hope to see more in the future. Which is evident because I don’t even think I wrote this much about the last Iggy Pop record.
