Eminence is the bizarre creation of the drummer and the guitarist of Jo Squillo Eletrix. Erotic Dance / L'Amour D'Italie is the first of two records created by the duo and certainly this record is way more primitive than Hollywood By Night / OK Challenger, but perhaps I would claim that I even enjoy this a bit more if perhaps only because of the extreme kitschiness and naivety of it. This record sounds as if it was all recorded in a single sitting by two guys who had virtually no idea of what they were going to create beforehand. It is a very silly and entertaining affair filled with cheapo and simplistic instrumentation, meaningless lyrics, and highly accented / off vocals. My favourite bits are the occasional times when it sounds like neither singer can properly align himself with the other's singing (instrumental-vocal synchronicity is especially an issue in the weird side B when they awkwardly try to spell out "I LOVE YOU" in line with the music). I will also note that despite all of the ridiculousness of this record, Erotic Dance is a super catchy tune that I have often found myself humming to when doing unrelated things away from the music. I do wish the photo of the two awkwardly posed guys and their reversed image on the cover were a little bigger though. Their other record is a lot more polished sounding and thusly a little more popular (relatively speaking) and OK Challenger is a pretty awesome track, but as a whole package, I personally get more enjoyment out of this one.
