FOJC's 2009 EP Head Go Whoosh featuring "Lola Like This" & "Hush Madame X" was released on July 21 and is now available at Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and emusic. The lead track, “Lola Like This,” was remixed by Energy 92.7's Trevor Simpson from San Francisco, Haki from Mexico City who scored a big hit last year on Mexican radio with his remix of FOJC’s “Hot Sahara,” Rod Carrillo, the influential program director from Phoenix’s Energy 92.7 who was an early fan and supporter, and LA’s Dave Audé, the go-to pop dance remixer of the year. These remixes are available on Lola Like This: The Apache Dance Remixes.
The band is best known for their 2008 single "Hot Sahara," which received national attention on the dance charts as well as featured spots on television shows The L Word, Ugly Betty, The Hills, and Samantha Who? "Hot Sahara" and the related album, Twist of the Banshees, were also on the prelist of nominations for two Grammy awards in the electronic dance category last year. Fans of Jimmy Century's infectious live sets have made them a favorite on the West Coast Pride/festival circuit, giving them the opportunity to share the stage with artists such as Cyndi Lauper, The English Beat, Lady GaGa, Shiny Toy Guns, Berlin, The Bird and the Bee, and The Presets.
"We're alterna-dance 'n' indie disco with a thing for black velvet paintings and beat poetry," says offbeat lead singer Alicia Perrone. "And we tend to write songs about introverted girls who transform into twisting banshees on the dance floor -- heads go whoosh."
