Oh No Ono, who presumably took their name from the audience's reaction when John Lennon pitched up onstage at The Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus, are five men from Denmark who sound like Sparks on speed. Their combination of electronically assisted helium falsetto and skittish synth melodies also invokes the jouissance of Tin Tin's "Kiss Me", the saucy squelch of Prince circa 'Dirty Mind' and the E-numbers exuberance of Bis. When they stop for a second and give the hyper-hyper energy a breather, as they do on "Sunshine and Rain At Once", they sound as magical as a childhood Christmas. Yes, indeed.
