Mecca Normal (David Lester and Jean Smith) have been performing, recording and activating since 1984. To my mind there is nothing like them.
A few years ago it was learned that Jean Smith had entered the online dating scene. Although I have not seen her profile, evidence of her participation can be heard in Mecca Normal songs like "Attraction is Ephemeral" (2006), one of their finest works to date.
Here is Mecca Normal performing "Attraction is Ephemeral". After that, Lana Del Rey doing the same for "Video Games" (2011). Compare and contrast.
