ACT ‘Laughter Tears And Rage’ (ZTT ZQMC 1)
Marlene’s on the wall and she looks suspiciously like Ms Brucken!
The brilliantly Germanic sculpted excess of Claudia’s magnificent rearing nose is admirably reflected throughout this debut LP. The flaring nostrils on 1987’s finest, ‘Snobbery And Decay’; the cute twitch of ‘I Can’t Escape From You’; the classic profile of ‘Under The Nights Of Germany’; the polite sneeze of ‘Where Love Lies Bleeding’.
All arranged by clever little Scots sidekick Thomas Leer and with a dangerously large and glamorous production job, Claudia’s Act is a sort of classy female hi-fashion catwalk A-ha.
The curtain’s up, the show goes on and this first Act leads the way… ☆☆☆
