cape & merc.

NYE gift from "the Dorothy Parker of early 80s club pop"

You may have heard/read Kore, Nik and me raving about Cristina Monet for some time now. Well, as a special treat, I have uploaded my first Cristina mp3 [link below], a rip from vinyl of her breakthrough 1980 single, a "cover" of the famous '60s Peggy Lee song "Is That All There Is?" When you hear it, you'll probably understand why she was sued by composers Lieber and Stoller and all copies of the single and album were pulled. An excellent New Year's Eve track, I must say.
