Another performance from Steve Oram and Tom Meeten’s Club Fantastico, the same night as Is My Toaster Sentient? and just as dynamic. But where my aggressive energy seemed to fit the Toaster song perfectly and lift it to a beautiful place, here it just makes Michael the Swan seem difficult and overwrought. It’s just too much. Truth is, I never gave anywhere near as much attention to how the songs should look as to how they should sound, so it wasn’t until watching this video fifteen years later that I could see how overwhelming (and potentially unpleasant) the experience of watching me sing this must have been. Also of note: only six months after doing the Beef Scarecrow show and already I’m back in my Face Academy costume.
