Gus Gus Forever
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: Gung Ho!
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
On their fifth album, Gus Gus appears to be adhering strictly to the adage "Fuck art, let's dance." Now stripped down to a core trio-Biggi Veira, Earth, and President Bongo-alongside a handful of collaborators (Pall Oskar, Aaron Carl, former member Daniel Agust), the group frequently looks towards archetypal dance-music lyricism rather than anything consciously "arty." Nevertheless, they manage to appropriate an Argentinian football chant: "If you don't jump, you're English," they declare in the song of the same name. If you ain't jumpin' to Forever, check that your legs aren't broken.
