Condor Moments

ARTIST / BAND: Condor Moments
SONG (MP3): Lord Protector, Milk Collector
ALBUM: And Though We're Told We've Got It All, The All We've Got Is Freezing Cold

FILE UNDER: Showtunes
LABEL: What Delicate Recordings

INFO: This group are quite hilarious in their own way. The only problem is trying to work out whether they mean to be. Usually playing (god only knows where) in the North West, apparently Condor Moments “are regularly invited to New York where [they] have built up a following among the S&M contingent and a variety of other extreme perverts – of all ages”. I dread to think how far the upper ranges extend.
Condor Moments summed up in a phrase? Camp S&M cabaret, and definitely not suitable for a PG audience. No matter what the truth may be, from hearing the demo I can only ever conjure up an image of a stage full of middle-aged men wearing PVC Speedos and singing a plethora of piano-accompanied expletives in the most operatic way possible, with completely straight faces.
It is probably safe to assume that the majority of readers find this image more than a little disturbing, although they are rather funny in a Little Britain kind of way. Lyrics include “I don’t fancy yours much / Go and shoot her in the head”. I’ll leave you with that thought.
