what do I know

Were the scissor sisters the avant garde of lady gaga's "avant-garde" pop?

The Scissor Sisters were a less-talented ABBA with updated costumes.

yes, clearly being a glammy ham is not a new idea. but I am curious why we seem to regard gaga as some kind of an apparition rather than the latest in that string.

I've only heard songs of theirs, but the Scissor Sisters seem to be a little bit more of a band, whereas Lady Gaga seems to be an entertainer who happens to sing. Its like the difference between Cindy Lauper and Madonna. Madonna was a dynamic and charismatic person who happened to sing for a living, but even her fans would be hard pressed to say that she's got great chops as a singer. That's how I feel about Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga The Phenomenon is bigger than Lady Gaga the singer.
