Micky & Joyce, “Hold Up”

by Alexandra Molotkow

I like the kind of song where you could dance to it in normal life, but if you woke up in the middle of the night and it was blaring from the walls you would definitely die.

“They say shut up, Misses. Please lay down on the ground. Would you give us money, or we kill you just now?”

Here is what I know, or think I know, about Jean-Pierre Massiera, the man behind this song — which isn’t much, actually. He is? was? a producer from Buenos Aires (originally), then based in Quebec, and Nice, and Antibes. He recorded weirdo psychedelic music, then weirdo disco, under many different names (included SEX CONVENTION, the best-named thing of all time).

And then…yeah, I dunno. I wish I knew more. And I REALLY wish I knew more about Micky & Joyce because WHO THE HECK ARE these golden-throated females. If you know more, please tell me everything.
