Synthadelic - i'm a secretary


Flanders moonlights as a photographer – an acclaimed one – and teaches image-making and styling at Salford University. Langton works at an LGBT foundation, and Manning “is all music”. Flanders comes up with the words for Ménage à Trois. “But I don’t really write them down,” he says. “I remember them like a photograph, like you remember a moment.” There’s a line in the song Bobby’s Prism, “It’s hard to let your feelings show”, and another on South Seas that goes, “I don’t wanna go losing you, baby.” Pop tropes are employed, but it’s hard not to conclude, given Flanders’ history of strategy and subversion, that he’s playing with the idea of meaning and sincerity.
