reviews of xoyo


cherry red releases, 1982

at this very moment cherry red is trying to figure out what went wrong with their promotion on xoyo, because everyone thought it was a hit. we didn't conceive it as a hit though. it was an album track originally and just seemed the best bet as a single. certainly the lyric is more understandable than most. it states the case for sexual liberation quite clearly, but i like to think it has levels of subversion in it
