'Witty, pared-down lyrics... reveal themselves to be subtle, street-life portraits of hard luck heroines and heists gone wrong. A beautifully crafted culture clash that never feels contrived.' Daily Telegraph Saturday

'The record is probably the best thing she has recorded, a fresh and unassuming fusion of lo-fi melodies, hip-hop beats and confessional lyrics' The Times

Bunch of mentalists! Feb. 14th, 2005 @ 09:58 am
Ok- quick message from your friendly neighbourhood moderator...

It seems that the comments on a previous post have been completely hijacked by a bunch of anonymous mentalists. I have no idea who they are, what they want or, more to the point why they've chosen such an innocuous place as this to carry out their bizarre little flame war. Anyway, I've disabled anonymous commenting, which should hopefully stop their fun.

Anyway, everything seems very quiet on the Racine front right now... if you can look beyond the psycho contributions, there are actually a few interesting thoughts being aired in the hijacked thread, although some of it reeks of conspiracy theories/ mental illness/ the kind of tripe a jealous ex or stalker would write. Thoughts, anyone?

Anyone got the album yet? Any thoughts?

Check out this link. You'll have to scroll down a bit, but there's a hilarious message that suggests Wendy's birth parents are...

Well, that's be telling, wouldn't it? Let's just say I have my doubts- nice try, though!

» Racine No.1 Press Kit
Release date: 27th September

Label: Pia-K Recordings

Former Transvision Vamp star WENDY JAMES returns to the music scene as Racine with a brand new album 'Racine No.1'.

Racine fully embraces the DIY punk ethic – the forthcoming debut album 'Racine No.1’ and the single ‘Grease Monkey’ which precedes it, are self performed, self produced, and self written. It will be released on Wendy James’ own label Pia-K Recordings, and distributed through Pinnacle Records in the U.K.

‘Racine No. 1’ is a cool slice of futuristic pop with an electronic edge. It’s unashamedly different... and totally ‘now’, as reflected by the recent round of press days which drew in everyone from ‘high brow‘ music press to fanzines, from broadsheets to style supplements and all points in-between.
