Chic: Risque (Atlantic)

Robot A. Hull, Creem, December 1979

THERE'S ONLY one alternative to being stylish, and that's being trashy. Consider fascist Steve Dahl touring the country with his anti-disco army, a slow funeral train coming your way, and in its wake, tanks and jeeps hauling disco records in caskets. Regrettably, some nerds really try hard to appear cool; luckily, there are those who don't even have to try.
