Scissor Sisters

Series 3 - Episode 2 Scissor Sisters



Glitter nowhere to be seen, dressed down in muted shirts and patterned dresses – where’s the glam Scissor Sisters? Once you get over the surprise that vocalists Jake Shears and Ana Matronic aren’t decked out in rhinestones all the time, this intimate set from the platinum-selling band is an understated treat.

Scissor Sisters’ 2006 hit I Don’t Feel like Dancin’ is stripped to its essentials for this series created by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, before the band leap into two tracks from their 2012 album Magic Hour.


Scissor Sisters play a stripped-down set, featuring performances of I Don't Feel Like Dancin', Somewhere, Baby Come Home, Sex and Violence, Inevitable and Invisible Light. Plus, music by Thundercat, aka former Suicidal Tendencies bassist Stephen Bruner.
