Pussy, King of the Pirates by The Mekons
Released: Jan 1996
Label: Quarterstick
This collaboration with lunatic (sorry, avant-garde) author Kathy Acker intersperses Acker reading from her book of the same name with the Mekons singing tunes inspired by her tale of lesbian pirates. On the plus side: the Mekons get to indulge their experimental urges without worrying too much about the words, and Acker's "libretto" gives Tom Greenhalgh an opportunity to sing a lot of curses in falsetto. On the negative: experiments don't always produce meaningful results; Greenhalgh singing the c-word in falsetto might be the most memorable thing about this record.
