Get into the groove. Thankfully in recent years things have moved on and most will recognize her achievements, mes amis. Guests have been awoken by this absolutely delightful life and soul of the party. This is where your weekend starts... Grace in no small part to Michel Esteban(as ever), Vivien Goldman, flatmate Patti Smith, Light in the Attic and other notable luminaries of sanity. Just as well, as this will be a good dose of the most startlingly exciting music most of us will ever hear. All her records bring something new to the table and grow in stature with each listen and passing year and the first four of the five lps are arguably already convincing game-changing classics setting her myriad moods in tone and stone; with Suspense also under re-evaluation. No musical home is complete without her extremely pleasant shards of barbed wire love. We are lucky to have her. And if you come across one of her megascarce poetry volumes you're very lucky indeed. As for the paintings and even doodles on/off boyfriend Richard Hell and pals are scouring those Boho lofts desperately seeking any Susan who last laid eyes on them.
So the postpunk firebrand's heavensent star will hence
effectively blaze permanently in the musical firmament.
PS Despite this, at home, French cultural attachés take note. Please let's see even more tangible awareness of this icon, France's most gifted and innovative export diva of the musicscene. Fittingly her origins are the les Halles area opposite the Pompidou Centre in Paris, bastion of great art shows of days of yore. Maybe open that humble abode up or convert her home in the south of France as a museum like Cocteau's Villa Santo Sospir. Or use her for a while, de temps en temps, as the Marianne symbol of the Republic on stamps and in bulletins. Exhibitions on her art and the New York Paris punk connection are needed. Get with it. Stop living in previous millenia. If ever there was a symbol that was of the modern age for liberty equality and fraternity but that was at the cutting edge of contemporaneous creativity Lizzy is it now and forever. Female icons of French culture need to be recognized . France doesn't want to be thought of as a land that only produced male artists does it? The avant-garde is a French term and Lizzy has made the avant-garde in music something loveable and international. Just as like Eno and David Byrne she brought world music into focus for the spoilt elite so they woke up- likewise you need to awaken your energies from covidia and overall sloth and bring her more into focus in return. There is more to life than the French football team. But like some of those high achievers she was herself a cultural ambassador for French and global cultures and achievements. This has to be addressed. And New York, you owe her too! Esteban could be more appreciated for his contribution than he has been as well- give him a grant so he can open up a loft/get some permanent tribute centre going. He invented nowave for chrissakes lol. And in great French style they were each others muses.

Gosh!! how is it possible that anybody as never write any com
ments about such a genius..from his early minimal no wave /punk experiments under his Rosa Yemen project to his latest smooth synth pop every way she'd takes was amazing!! And if you mind all the people she worked with and how she runs the world during his too short career you just understand how big she was!! Miss you Cinderella

So, there's actually two versions of the new Light in the Attic reissues: black wax and color wax.
