Phonogram - The Singles Club #4

Spending the evening in the DJ's booth tonight, with Seth Bingo and the Silent Girl.

Five and a third pages out of sixteen.

It's another club night under way! (well, the same one we've been seeing for the past few issues, but it's another one to them!)

(good heavens, the lady speaks!)

Let's open with a few requests!

Or not!

Things aren't quite picking up, though. People are not dancing like they should.
Only one thing to do.

(didn't have room for them dancing to the song, sorry)

But Seth still has unfinished business.

Doesn't quite go well for him.

Events conspire to further sour his mood, until finally culminating in one line.

But the night continues along.

What about "Silver", that'd pass the rules, wouldn't it? (joking of course, no one could possibly dance to "Silver")

Only one thing can restore order here!

well i guess that didn't backfire on him at all

Lucky for him, the Silent Girl's there to set him straight.

Having been ditched by Emily and KWK, Kohl ends up being recruited as pack mule for the pair as they pack up for the evening.

So, this one was a breather of sorts, but still a charming and amusing break from the other stories. And it is important to remember that sometimes you've just gotta shut up and dance.

I'll admit that I don't really get this one. But I still haven't read the whole thing, so we'll see what it's like after that.

What I do know of this issue though is that it might be the one that you'd need to understand the music references moreso than any of the others. While I may recognize some of the bands, there's not a lot of context that makes it clear why they critique them the way they do.

No, no one can dance to Silver. But, you CAN dance to "I Bleed" and it's within the rules, isn't it?

And having known more than my fair share of DJs, just this snippet is totally spot on.

Can't wait to get this in trade!

Having re-listened to it, I can't believe I didn't notice before. For whatever reason, Kim's vocals always stood out for me more, but you're right.

This is one of my favorite issues.

"But he don't know about X-T-Z..."

Oh, I thought they were doing a word pun on "ecstasy". Though X-T-C makes more sense as word pun too, which the band probably was going for.

This was the first one of the series I picked up. I had to have the rest. Though it's nice to know what the business with the Pipettes was now. Why is the trade not here yet, dammit?

I've always been kinda wary of this guy because, frankly, I like the Pipettes.

I think he's sort of an asshole, but in an amusing way. I suppose those characters are always the most divisive.

I usually like asshole characters, but something about this guy sits wrong. I think it's because he's so condescending.

The opening riffs of "Pull Shapes" are actually quite reminiscent of Blondie's "Atomic", and while the song isn't that much the clip for it is truly adorkable.

Robyn's "Who's That Girl" is pants, especially if you've ever heard the Eurythmics song of the same name from '83

Are they pulling/pushing the panel borders in that one panel near the end?

Ah! I see now. That sounds pretty cool...

Yeah, I love snappy, realistic dialogue and all so I've been reading these and tryyyyyyyyyyyying to get into them...

But these kids just aren't people I want to know. Granted variety is the spice of life... but here the whole cast is so "uppercrust white party kids," including Bitchy LeVinyl and Triana Orpheus here in the DJ booth.

Granted, I know that's what it's going for and they capture it immensely well... but if I'm looking for that scene, there's Barcode in downtown Taipei... I come here to get my geek on. Pass.

I decided to break my lurking habit and join Dreamwidth, just to say thank you for posting pages from my favourite comic! Personally I'm pissed off that these 7 and Rule Britannia are all the Phonogram we get, but I suppose a good thing is a good thing, even if small in number.

(And in true Gillen fashion, whilst writing this post I have mainly been listening to: Foals - Spanish Sahara)

It's like they took Dirk Anger and made him an Unknown Armies character.
