The Return Of Cheyne!

Cheyne Coates has been missing in action since the demise of Madison Avenue and the dismal failure of her own solo career. It's a shame because the world of pop is a less colourful place without her fabulous presence. Thankfully, the DJs behind Canada's Soundbluntz have taken pity on poor Cheyne and asked her to provide vocals for their excellent track, "(Maybe You'll Get) Lucky". If you close your eyes, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was 1999 all over again. "Lucky" could easily slip into Madison Avenue's "Polyester Embassy" album - Cheyne's stunning voice is as expressionless as ever, the beats are similar and the lyrics cover Cheyne's favourite theme of looking sexy in a nightclub. Fans of Australia's most successful dance act will no doubt happily devour "Lucky".

Cheyne's funky anthem was recently released in the UK after a successful Canadian release. To my knowledge it is yet to chart. I'm sure "Lucky" would garner significantly more attention in Australia. Central Station Records - what are you waiting for?! In the meantime, you can purchase "Lucky" from HMV UK or order an import copy from Chaos.

"the lyrics cover Cheyne's favourite theme of looking sexy in a nightclub" had me laughing for a good little while - I think she stands in a dark corner until some poor guy gets too drunk in a club, and then it's too late. Maybe You'll Get Lucky gives me comedy shudders!

Did you absolutely love "Taste You" from her solo album? The saxophone in that song was fucking magical, I still blare that song as loud as possible to this day.

LOL - Cheyne is slightly trannytastic but I'm sure there are plenty of guys who would swarm over her square jaw and bony shoulders in a nightclub! BTW - I love your Blog and will link you up.

Adem - I do indeed think Taste You is a lost classic and wrote about it here:

I actually saw the video at the gym last week and almost fell off the treadmill. Was the fabulous bitch intentionally impersonating Norma Desmond?!

I was in the salon getting my hair 'did', and I heard the video and almost wet myself! I was so excited to see Cheynne back! They played a new remix of Robin S' 'Show Me Love' right after it. It was the best!

Oh Mobin Master's remix of Show Me Love is bliss! I hope it gets a release, it's a club hit in Australia right now.

Oh my goodness! I had no idea Cheyne had seen a release here. I must order this immediately. PTAs comes to my rescue again!!

:D

MG - As Cheyne's #1 and possibly only fan, I'm shocked that you don't already own it. Shame on you!

Who the hell are you to treat me like that?
