Chico Fellini - S/T (Shangri-La)
Danceable, groove-laden theatrical rock somewhere in the hemisphere of David Bowie and Queen describes this fabulous debut from Chico Fellini. A flamboyant performance runs throughout this whole modern disco wonderland, making the vocal eccentricities glitter even more.
Strong tracks include “Electrolyte”, “Can’t Deny”, and “Down The Up Ladder”. It does have its fillers, but overall the infectious glitz translates well. Chico Fellini should make a splash beyond regional recognition.
