Cosmopolitans, a dance-troupe-turned-rock-combo, surfed the New Wave as a leader of the pack of party bands as the 1970s bled into the 1980s. With their Shangri-Las attitude, Hullabaloo choreography, Sam the Sham spirit, & deadpan lyrics, the group delivered dance music, frantic and fun, decked out in matching outfits with fringe, sequins, chartreuse fake furs and Keds. The group is best remembered for cutting one of the most infectious singles of the era: "(How to Keep Your) Husband Happy" backed with "Wild Moose Party" and "Dancin' Lesson".
And now Beloved has brought the Cosmopolitans sound back to vinyl - seven songs: including two of the original songs mastered by Bob Ludwing in 1980 and two previously unheard recordings of Cosmopolitans standards.
As Brad Reno wrote in Trouser Press, "This combo lived fast, died young, and left a great-sounding corpse."
