Splendid Magazine has posted a rather funny review of Roy "Chicky" Arad's Sputnik in love:Sputnik In Love's title track is a two-chord ditty with cheesy, poorly recorded drum machine beats and arrhythmic acoustic guitar. The lyrics repeat the song title, almost to the point of causing physical pain. Arad eventually launches into a bridge whose infantile lyrics could well injure you mentally: "I don't know if you love me / I don't know if you care / I don't know if you're sick of me / I don't know if you're there."Read the full review here.

Sad news: Dudu Geva, the best known and loved Israeli illustrator, who illustrated "Sputnik in Love" - released on WM Recordings in january - died today from a sudden heart attack, at the age of 55. His famous character was "The Duck". He was sued by the Disney Corporation, after his duck had been raping Donald Duck in one of his books, and had to pay 10,000 dollars. He once said that he wants to be buried in a plate of Hummus (oriental Israeli food). Be nice to illustrators, they are very sensitive.
