Passion Pit vs Bucks Fizz

The FizzBucks Fizz is not simply a fairly new money way of ruining champagne, it was also the moniker of one of the 80’s most influential pop groups. Arriving at a time when the youth of the era were lonely, alienated and mistrustful, their visceral pop ripped apart convention and offered an outlet for teenage angst to a lost generation. Hope. That was their message.

Actually, that’s all lies. They were a two boy, two girl proto-Steps. They won Eurovision when the boys took the girls skirts off at the end of a dance routine. Curiously, it was as sexless as a cheese and onion crisp. They were a Pebble Mill of a band who looked as though the BBC had created them in a lab. Cheryl Baker even ended up as the host of ‘Record Breakers’.

Which makes it all the more remarkable that Passion Pit’s new single appears to be a re-working of their hit single ‘Land of Make-Believe’. Go on, see what you think.

(For what it’s worth, we prefer the original.)
