This latest track from Boltonite Janine Rostron’s Planningtorock really struts its stuff. In the video she glides around with dark grace and some menace like a disco queen gone berzerk. Janine Rostron looks like the kind of character you wouldn’t want to cross.
The staccato riff that drives this song becomes a pulsing dirty epic that has your muscles twitching and your feet ready to go. What does Rostron mean by us ‘Living it Out’? Our celebrity fantasies? Our morbid fascination with ourselves? Only Planningtorock knows. Janine adorns a huge frizzy perm and she does this great bouncy rhythmic thing that sends her hair into a funky step. The music pounds. Electronic pulses and jabbing strings put through a mincer. This is messed up scratchy disco from a growing force.
