Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5

Ted Dancin' (Button Up)

By • Aug 26th, 2020 • Category: Single review

In these shitty times here is something to really cheer you up, readers…

The Dijons are releasing this on 28th August, a single from the forthcoming album, an unashamedly mental track about dancin’ – yes, just dancin’…

With their trademark irrepressible bouncing beat, Scotland’s premier party band take it to the bridge with references to techno, funk and christ knows what else…

An homage to Cheers/Becker/Good Place actor Ted Danson, the whole band pitches in while the Colonel is “uncontrollably dancin'” and in any normal year we all would be… everywhere…

BM is reminded of ‘Lost In Music’ by Sister Sledge and the sense of release when the music takes over and you forget all the other shit… sublime, and it admits the Dijon 5 to that select club of artists who can really do this… respect due…

There are some great brass parps and solos in here too – BM terribly misses dancin’ but this is the next best thing – in your living room…

Two other versions are also available….for more dancin’!
