Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

In 1986 three women issued this record. Now we have a reissue of Joane Hetu, Diane Labrosse and Danielle Palardy Roger’s work.

The music is synthetic sounding and has gloriously imaginative lyrics.

“En criant su l’perron” has a discordant saxophone that reminds me of Lora Logic’s playing in X-Ray Spex. The synths sounds truly offbeat as well.

“Human Pinball” is playful yet sinister with some hellishly cackling vocals loitering in the background.

This cd puts the fun back into experimentation, which means its reissue is cause for celebration.
