Her dancing child with his Chinese suit
on 2 November 2017
Bloody Hell She is Angry. Backing group is tight, lyrics fairly puerile and her voice has seen better days. Nonetheless Marianne speaks from personal experience. Which is more than you can say about most of the modern homogenised pap parading as "music" these days. Buy it just for the ride and unless you have a proper turntable/arm/cartridge get the CD (or if you must: download), play it loud and listen to the words. Come on people it is only a few pounds, dollars whatever and Marianne could do with the 1% royalty. Heroin is not cheap these days you know. And if you want a bit of insight buy her book (Faithfull) to read while listening. Finally before you ask, I am not related or connected or have any association with Marianne Faithfull. And really finally, look up her great grandad, Leopold Von Sacher Masoch!
