Emerging from the New York gay club scene in a storm of camp, disco-pop sass, the Scissor Sisters immediately found huge fame in Britain, topping the album charts and scoring big hits with the sleazy, electro cover of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb, the cabaret boogie of Take Your Mama Out and the raunchy pout of Filthy/Gorgeous. Equally appealing to the pop charts, the radio playlists and the club dance floors, eponymous debut Scissor Sisters (2004) became the biggest selling album of the year with sales of over 2.5 million in the UK alone. Festival appearances, sell-out tours and a bundle of awards followed as Europe and finally America caught on, before they returned in 2006 with their follow-up Ta-Dah and their first UK Number 1 single I Feel Like Dancin, featuring Elton John on piano. Lengthy recording sessions throughout 2008 and early 2009 were forced to be scrapped, but a "super-sexual and sleazy" new sound was born on third album Night Work (2010).
