{     Hot Chip "Coming on Strong" LP     } So it’s 1998 and I decide to move to NYC to become a superstar DJ (sorry, it seemed like a good idea at the time) and I’m trying to explain to my mother what I meant when I said “DJ”. With no common point of reference to go on all she could say was “You mean like Wolfman Jack?” In her mind that was the most successful DJ she had ever known. So without a relevant example to counter with I just said “um, yeah. Like Wolfman Jack.” Now I’m trying to expose her to the ever expanding roster of musicians that use electronics but at their core are classic pop artists. So I describe this music by saying “Imagine all the catchiness of classic 60’s pop music but replace all the guitars with synths and add some drum machine beats.” To which she says “like Styx?” “No,” I say and shake my head “here, just listen to this.” and I hand her the “Coming on Strong” CD. She listens to the CD while me and my wife Tia sit in the same room listening along with her and when it ends she says “Oh, I get it. Poppy but weird.” “aaannnd FUCKING AWESOME…” Tia says “don’t forget fucking awesome!” I stand there, mouth a bit agape and say “Uh yeah. Poppy, fucking awesome, weird, that pretty much sums it up.”
