Reply to "Scissor Sisters"

Read the feature in the Voice this week where the story is an excuse for the writer's expense account party trip to London.

The sisters have become the epitome of the 'underappreciated' on the US market, being a global brand name everywhere but the US oweing mostly to their party band status and the kitschy stage presence both of which are a tip off to American consumers of a marketing scam.

The Voice article comes off as a description of hapless musicians who do not control their own destiny and are imprisoned in celebrity. The article is a puff piece with a sour cachet.

Are the sisters miffed at having their stateside megastardom potential shrugged off by the market? Or are they fulfilled with otherwise world-wide fame and all the excess economic windfall? Its not clear from the article except that, thankfully, they all seem to have retained their NYC cult-band insouciance. House-sitting for Elton John can make up for lack of bona-fide superstardom at home, it appears.

At least Daddy's girl, Sammy Jo, is mentioned as being a benefactress of the whole booty capitalist twist.
