Post-punk art strumpet Mercier Descloux has been so completely forgotten you could almost take her for the latest darling to squeeze the vogue for late-’70s/early-’80s NY. Yet she is the real thing?a Parisian who shared a SoHo loft with Patti Smith, gigged like a putative Peaches and recorded a handful of LPs for Ze and Polydor between 1978 and 1986.

Her style is new wave yapping meets gamine French chicklet. Debut Press Color is archetypal No Wave disco: all bubblegum-free-jazz-groove (man). Follow-up Mambo Nassua, recorded at Compass Point, plumps for a hotter, Fela Kuti-ish sound. Both irresistible.
