Chris Joss seems to come from a place where the 1980s never happened; his album YOU'VE BEEN SPIKED goes straight from the 1970s to today. "Disctotheque Dancing" plays that funky bass right over some disco breaks. The cinematic influence here is unmistakable; Joss channels blaxploitation as easily as he does Bollywood: "You've Been Spiked" has sitars humming throughout, while "Riviera 69" has a mysterious, icy feel suitable for an Italian giallo. "Waves of Love" heads into dreamy, romantic territory, a sun-drenched track; "Waking Up in the Park" shares some of the romanticism, but seemingly with a more urban vibe. This album is proof positive that 10 years just isn't enough for a good decade.
