Jessica Vale knows what she wants. She has a wicked mind and voice like a phone-sex operator and enough retro savvy to work in a Visage reference, and before you can ask "What else is in the teaches of Peaches," she's cooing and panting and purring at her partner of choice. Featuring breathy audio snippets of what I'm told is real-live sheet croquet (but could just as likely be an extract from a recording of the Three Little Pigs), "Disco Libido" pulses and pounds like early club-friendly Ministry. It also sounds strangely like the tune David Brent uses to accompany himself while showing off his dance moves in The Office. For fun, see if you can spot the lyric difference between the radio version and the normal one (I'll give you a clue: it rhymes with 'duck'). Just one question: what, no 'screwed 'remix?
