    Joan As Police Woman

    Any other fans on here?

    I got into Joan Wasser first through her work with Antony and the Johnsons. It wasn't until last year, with her excellent LP Damned Devotion, that I really took a deep dive into her songwriting and those hypnotic vocal stylings got under my skin. With the release of a retrospective called Joanthology and an upcoming tour, it just seems like an appropriate time to get the word out on ETS!

    As an aside, I had no idea until very recently that she was involved romantically with Jeff Buckley at his untimely death, and recorded an album in tribute to him with Those Bastard Souls. In fact, her career goes back to long before that with The Dambuilders. A big catalogue, certainly, and one full of hidden gems.

    For anyone looking to catch up, there is a podcast also called Joanthology where she recaps her career so far, album by album.

    Anyway, here is a music video:

    Here is another amusing video... Joan sits down with Paul from SuperDeluxeEdition and 'unboxes' (shows off, really) the packaging for her most recent release, Joanthology:

    Yahoo! First three records being reissued on limited colour vinyl. These will look great next to my baby-blue Live at the BBC and translucent-pink Damned Devotion vinyl.
