Har Mar Superstar – DUI
This is a slice of proto nu disco. I say “proto” because it kind of came out at a time before the term nu disco was being bandied about and got lumped in with stuff like Scissor Sisters and Electric Six and Mika. In my head. Anyway this was off The Handler LP and I never got on too well with the rest of the record but I used to rinse this song. It’s got funky chopped guitar chords, Har Mar’s ridiculous high-pitched vocals, a funky-ass clap and even a touch-tone phone in the mix.
What’s more, I’m interested in his current work with “soft-rock inspired” supergroup Gayngs. I really hope we see a non-ironic AOR-style album from them soon. His participation is unconfirmed and Gayngs appears to have gone quiet.
