The Scissor Sisters’ third album Night Work might be garnering some mixed reviews (which is to say that it did from me, here at PopMatters, though others seem to like it), but the band certainly appears to be at no loss for creativity in their promotion of their latest album and tour.  The August installment of their “Scissor Sisters News” clips is rife with the band’s trademark irreverence, filled with hilariously tacky visuals and tasteless humour and featuring some backstage footage of Kylie Minogue rehearsing with the band, Jane Fonda demonstrating some Scissor Sisters “Night Workout” moves and, as the broadcast’s “Slovakian correspondent” (???), an enthusiastic, if all-too-brief appearance by Juliette Lewis. 


In typical Sisters fashion, it’s a lot of fun.
