OF ALL the unexpected comebacks, a whopping 16 years after their last album, the B-52s are back - and they're desperate.
After all, there are acts in the charts that hadn't been born when they last had a hit.
Funplex is essentially the goodtime, shimmying, head shaking sound of the B-52s that we all knew and loved - albeit if only on Love Shack, Shiny Happy People and at a push (Meet The) Flintstones - but while they're trying to be sexy.
And lets be frank, the last people you'd want near you while you're gettin' it on would be an ageing pop group that resemble the Scissor Sisters' demented parents.
