Followers of Spunk, the all-female improv quartet of which Maria Ratjke is a founder member, will probably constitute the only audience for this, her first solo album, which, to say the least, is challenging, occasionally verging on the unlistenable. No conventional songs, indeed very few conventional vocalisings, feature on this disc in which Ratjke’s strong, attractive voice is electronically processed into firestorms of cut-up noise. Those in the market for experimentalism may find there is something to take their fancy in this uncompromising release.
