The first downloadable single from Static Future is a heady cocktail of The Wedding Present and late-era Talking Heads. Inspired by Pepper LaBeija and the drag ball movement described in the movie Paris is Burning, LaBeija is a guitar-driven paean to the optimism of the beginning of the disco movement in New York City and a Romantic reading of men as women everywhere.
