The 2010-50 - No.6: Get a job done in the parking lot

"Backseat" - Staygold featuring DJ Spank Rock, Damien Adore & Lady Tigra.

Back in January 2010, we were treated to an unexpected but pleasant surprise at the P3 Guld awards, as a new song was premiered by Swedish electro-pop act Staygold. No offence to Staygold, but my attention was focused on Damien Adore, the guy in the tin-soldier outfit, heavily disguised and singing falsetto vocals which reminded me of Prince. Yes, that good. It emerged that Damien Adore was none other than the alter-ego of Salem Al Fakir. An irresistibly down-and-dirtier alter ego too.... ;)))

And just when it couldn't get any better, along came Robyn (singing the Lady Tigra part of the song).

DJ Spank Rock returned later in the year, featuring on Mark Ronson's excellent "The Bike Song" which narrowly missed out in a place in my top 50.
