This review is from: Hormonally Yours (Audio CD)
I revisited "Hormonally Yours" after watching a short interview with Siobhan Fahey about her time in Bananarama in a bbc documentary about girl bands . The girls in that group always looked hot , cool and frankly , a bit bored. I never took the time though to actually spot Fahey in their old videos , and it was intriguing to me when i did , how a woman as smoking hot as Fahey would adopt a totally different stage persona with joker-like gothic make-up for her next project , Shaekspears Sister . In combination with a set of much more sophisticated songs , it was all indication of a darker , more challenging side of hers .
Along with american singer-songwritter Marcella Detroit , they created a record which is easily a career highlight for both . This is a witty , sly music release whose success is mainly the result of the great chemistry between two opposite people , visually , stylistically and , as the messy break up a year later proved , personality-wise as well . " Stay " is a pop pray for love , " I Don't Care " and " Goodbye Cruel World " are cunning and smart , " An Emotional Thing " an elegant celebration of femininity with lyrics like " I don't have to tell ya where im coming from / If i leave my catsuit on .." but best of all though is " Hello ( turn your radio own ) " , a very touching ballad indeed . Add to all that a series of very theatrical , original video-clips and what u get is one of the most essential pop moments of the 90's .
