This performance is only for the sexy people. Last month, as part of Elliot Aronow's musical talk show, Our Show, New York's favorite club daughter Maluca got all dancefloor instructional by covering "Push It" and "Whip It" with Hisham Bharoocha's house band Harsh Toke. In the vehement Malu, Salt & Pepa have definitely got a problem, but the dudes who should truly be running for the hills are the jerky new wavers: on the "Whip It" part, her peppy mic style out-effervescences Devo by three decades and a flowerpot hat. Added bonus: the shitty camera/light quality makes it look like something you'd see on Brooklyn Cable Access Television (BCAT) at three in the morning in 1988, which we think is the point.
