referencing Queen Of Siam, LP, Album, Sil, CEL 2-6561. ZE Records has been doing a pretty lackluster job with their french pressings for a while. Lunch's solo debut is not an exception. The vinyl itself is quite noisy, with some weird distortions here and there (mostly concerning the loudest passages).

Her laconic slur of a voice has never sounded sexier, and her off-key rendition of "Spooky" is so lazily erotic that it nearly sucks the life out of you. A putrid classic of style and substance.
