Janet Jackson – Control

av Aural Fixation | Publicerades 9/4/2019

Gimme a beat! This is a story about Control – Janet Jackon's Control, the 1986 album which quite literally birthed an entire genre (Siri, what's 'new jack swing'?), and placed the Jackson Five's little sister on a path to international stardom, selling 100 million records worldwide and directly influencing artists as diverse as Britney, Beyoncé and, erm, Heidi from the Sugababes... according to Wikipedia.

Om Podcasten

Aural Fixation is a fortnightly queer music podcast that explores LGBTQI+ themes in music and pop culture. Launched in May 2019 and released fortnightly on Thursdays, each iconic instalment follows besties Drew and Andy as they discuss an album that is loved by queer people, made by queer artists, or speaks to queer experiences. British expats living and recording in Sydney, Drew and Andy bring a uniquely cross-genre and cross-hemispheric viewpoint to being gay and loving music, shared perhaps only by the Minogue sisters. Aural Fixation is recorded and produced by @drew_down_under and @andrewdoyouthinkyouare.
