There's hope yet for Dragonette

It is with great glee that I read Canadian electro-popsters Dragonette will be the headline act at music trade showcase / annual drug-bingeathon Midem, which takes place in Paris at the end of the month.

Why? Because any band that releases this image as a publicity shot deserves to be massive.

How refreshing to see that record label Mercury are continuing to support the band after their singles and album flopped so badly last year. Most bands would have been given a one-way express ticket to dumperdom by now, without so much as a Twix to keep the hunger pangs at bay on the journey.

In Dragonette's case, that would be a real pity because they're actually very, very good. Also, lead singer Martina is a terrible gymnast, so they need the music contract to keep them in essential food items.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's the video for their saucy smash hit single, Take It Like A Man (number 122 in the UK hit parade!). It's the sort of thing the Scissor Sisters would do if they hadn't gone all shit, and the video is a little bit porny.
