In the interests of fairer representation of the fairer sex on this blog, here’s a leather- and snakeskin-clad piece of sexy electro from a stunning all-girl act who seemingly disappeared after firing off this feisty track and enticing video.
All I can tell you about Jane Wayne is that they were a delectable-looking duo; that one of their members played in a number of South African punk rock bands; that they collaborated with Richard IIIrd (aka Biscope and producer of the bulk of the new Spoek Mathambo album) on the cracking “Ctrl Alt Del” track.
And that they then dropped out of circulation, leaving titillated listeners – many of course from the male fraternity! – lusting for more. It’s a pity all around: this tune has fabulous feminine menace and exhibits plenty of promise; their image was carefully crafted and (skin) tight, and the video slammingly mashed-up emotionally-charged black and white (and black vs white) archive footage – check it out here.
I’ll keep my ears (and eyes…) open for news on Jane Wayne – in the meantime feast your senses on one of the most seductive “one-hits” to emerge from SA in in years…
