Now considered something of a New Wave diva, Hermine Demoriane is a singer, writer, actress, comedian and tightrope walker. Her unique brand of singing, which, dare I say, is something of an acquired taste, is best encapsulated on her somewhat lost debut mini-album from 1982, 'The World On My Plates'. A six track collection of intriguing vaudeville torch songs, the LP owes much of it's cult reputation to the fabulous, iconic cover photo, which shows Hermine loading 7" records into a dishwasher, as you do, dolled up in her best polka-dot frock. I am so much in love with this sleeve image that I had it blown up and printed onto canvas, and it now proudly hangs in my kitchen. Comprising of minimalistic versions of 'Blue Angel' (Roy Orbison), 'Too Many Men In My Life' (Ruth Wallis), 'The Thrill Is Gone' (Henderson & Brown) and 'I Won't Make It Without You' (Nick Lowe), together with two originals, 'Happy Holidays' and 'Waiting', the release appeared in April 1982, on Brussels-based independent label, Crammed Discs.
