2000 Madison Avenue: Don't Call Me Baby

First number one from an Australian band since Men At Work back in 1983 is a busy house/dance hybrid with a relentless bass churn and sunnyside up vocal that gives more than a casual nod to DeeeLite's 'Groove Is In The Heart' (a song cruelly kept off number one in 1990 by Steve Miller) but without the inventiveness. Which means that, despite its pneumatic pump, there's a retro feel about 'Don't Call Me Baby' that renders it more kitsch than cutting edge, but it's still good fun.
