Ahead of the no wave pioneer's set with Big Sexy Noise at The Lexington tomorrow, she reluctantly takes up the gauntlet and picks her top 13 LPs


Jill Tracy – Diabolical Streak
She's from San Francisco, a lot of people don't know about her. It's kind of poisoned cabaret, late night revenge fantasies for the killer in every woman. Songs like 'Evil Night Together', really an evil chanteuse gonna fuck you up tonight probably with drugs and a knife. Pretty sexy stuff. She's still going, this album is from the 90s, but it's really hard to find any great cabaret music because it's all so corny. But this is a really great late night album to bring a date home to and watch him squirm. Before you really apply the pressure. I did a show or two with her in San Francisco. Her artwork is incredible too, it's really like post-Victorian, just sexy psychopath.
