What happens when a broiler-chick-to-be escapes his fate and witnesses what could have been? He grows up to be a pimp and returns to “MFC” headquarters to exact his revenge on a Colonel Sanders look-alike, of course!
Well, that’s what happens according to Moby, anyway. When he released the “Disco Lies” video on Feb. 14, he wrote, “Nothing says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ like the ‘Disco Lies’ video, involving pimp chickens, cowboy bodyguards, strippers, and the head of an international chicken franchise being chased through the streets of Mexico City.”
Uh, yeah, right. I guess that’s better than naming a dairy cow after your girlfriend.
Anyway, the song is really catchy, in a mellow, dancey way, and it’s off the album Last Night, due out April 1. You can download a free sampler here.
By the way, if you’re in L.A., Moby’s band The Little Death is playing at El Cid (4212 Sunset Blvd.) on Friday (doors open at 9; LD goes on at 10:45). Then on Saturday he’s DJing at the Heat Festival at UC Riverside.
