CHIC SHOULD NEVER QUIT
Rating: 4 of 5
Chic with Nile Rodgers
Place: Skeppsholmen, Stockholm. Audience: Around
6000. Lenght: 1H 30M. Best: "Everybody Dance",
"We Are Family", "I Want Your Love". Worst:
- The world's teeming with bands who should quit, who
should be silent and not do a comeback. The disco and funk group Chic does
not belong to that category.
- With guitarist, songwriter and superproducer Nile
Rodgers as leader, Omar Hakim on drums and the two beautiful singers Sylver
Logan Sharp and Jessica Wagner as a sort of core, Chic lines up one it-is-impossible-to-stand-still-song
- It must be rhythms from heaven. Or hell. I don't
- But you'll get it if you read the beginning of the
tracklist: "Le Freak", "I Want Your Love", "Everybody
Dance" and then a medley with among others "I'm Coming Out"
and "Upside Down".
- I will not testify to it, but I think there's never
been as much ferocious, persistant and long time dancing on Skeppsholmen
(island) as yesterday night. (translated by pocat)
