Drugstore - a unique band, back to give the world more beauty and
music journalists more headaches. When they unleashed their
eponymous debut album in 1995, critics practically exhausted
their thesauruses heaping praise upon the band. By the time they
released their sophomore album, White Magic For Lovers, the whole
world was on board, with rave reviews from publications as diverse as
Marie Claire, The Times, and Select. The band also scored a Top 20
hit single in the UK with the Pinochet-bashing "El President,"
featuring guest vocals by Thom Yorke of Radiohead!
A double disc set, Songs For The Jet Set is Drugstore's newest
effort, an uptempo blast of piano, guitar and cello, all topped off
with Monteiro's deliriously sexy vocals. The first single, "I Wanna
Love You Like A Man" is a seductive tango backed by the gorgeous B
side "Baby Don't Hurt Yourself," featuring Lambchop's Paul J. Niehaus.
Disc Two, Collector Number One, is a "superb collection of home-demos,
previously unreleased material and b-sides" (Amazon.co.uk). The
original demo of "El President" that was sent to Thom Yorke appears
here, along with a couple of new songs. This is Drugstore doing what
they do best: producing intimate, cheeky love-bites for all your
urban survival needs.
