"Following the release of her universally successful debut album Salt Peter (Creation, 1995), Lesley Rankine moved to New Orleans. Six months later, after a rash of car-jackings and hold-ups, a sufficiently scary incident happened. A woman was brutally murdered in the garden of her house opposite and the killer had deposited her clothing in Lesley's garbage as he left the scene. Lesley left New Orleans 5 days later and moved to Seattle to start recording her second'album. In-between touring and the stint in New Orleans, Lesley recorded a version of "Kung Fu Fighting' with Tom Jones (way before it was compulsory to do so) and performed 'Thank Heaven For Little Girls' in an ad filmed in LA for Pepsi/Mountain Dew..." This official description goes on & on about the traumas of being sucked into the Creation vortex, typical "Pro Label" nonsense: say nothing about the music, mention the Mountain Dew commercial, etc,, and hype the credibility enhancing remixers who've been duped in: Mekon, Schneider TM, Bench, Mira Calix, Max Tundra, Solex, Kid 606, Hrvatski, Eli Janney, Deckwrecka, Anjali, Dot Allision, Console, etc.
