Heads up all you Grebo’s – Double your pleasure today with two recordings from the Black Country.
Staying in the ’90’s, even though it was (Radiohead and Nirvana excepting) a sh?t pointless decade, there was another band who worshipped the beautiful game, or to be more precise – an certain Italian prOn star-turned MP…
In 1990 at the height of the Italio house/dance/rave type music PWEI came out with a song in time for Italia ’90 which included footie-related samples, no lyrics – just a chorus, and had nothing to do with La Cicciolina, but at the time she was all over the place.. *ahem* again… thanks to her appearance on Rapido (she also had a minor pop career) and for obviously being an adult film star.
I remember and will never forget one famous occasion… I think it was after 1990, when she appeared on Jonathan Ross’ teatime (6pm) show when he was on Channel 4. After her introduction as she was walking out she flashed a tit at the audience. This was live telly at the time and none of that Janet Jackson nipple delay was in effect then.
Anyhoddles… to the music.
PWEI – Touched By The Hand Of Cicciolina
Extra fact: Some copies of the single contained petition forms demanding that Cicciolina be allowed to present the 1990 FIFA World Cup to the winning team.
