Wine Woman & Song
A Clockwork Orange meets Monty Python and strictly NO Barbara Streisand covers in sight - this drag queen does NOT mime - with an Honours Degree in Music and live performances at successive Glastonbury Festivals, why should she?! This joint CD from Paddy and his "twin sister" Lulu carries on both Ireland's and Australia's fine rock tradition. "With a mixture of razor-sharp wit, brilliant musicianship, unparallelled drag (legs to die for ...) and the charm of the Irish, Lulu boldly goes where most fear to tread." Jackie Rozenfeld, Southern FM, Melbourne "... sings the most hilarious politically incorrect and sexually explicit lyrics with sweeping melodies in a fine high tenor voice, like a sex-crazed Glenn Tilbrook" - The Scotsman. 'Very clever lyrics, really sweet production given budgetary constraints. Surprisingly I found it entertaining and enjoying (not a fan of the [drag] scene or the Lulu character but am a fan of the man behind it all.)' Andrew Bag Sidwell, Allegedly Creative, Melbourne. 'By being at different times poignant, dark-humoured, irreverent and by their own admission, irritating, Paddy and Lulu have created a CD that can only be described as unique.' Sally Goldner, Out of the Pan, 3 CR 833 FM, Melbourne Featuring the song 'Why Did You Marry Such a Stupid Cow?' which Lulu/Paddy wrote and performed in the UK-award-winning Digicosm motion picture 'Parallels', as well as the definitive cross-dressers' anthem "All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go". Also included, songs everyone can identify with: 'I Always Fall Asleep In Meetings', 'Champagne Socialist', and 'Masturbating To The Sound of Your Own Voice' along with the hedonistic joy of smashing up an ex-boss's vintage 1967 Ford Cortina, and possibly the most annoying song ever written 'Working in de kitchens-AH!', contrasting starkly against the embittered cynical vitreol of "When I Leave London", "Little Miss Martyr" and "Don't Tell Me It Takes Two To Tango". If you are politically correct, have a social conscience, and are of a generally high moral standing, DO NOT BUY TO THIS CD. Fans of soul-funk, rap and acid-house jazz will likewise be wasting their money. A veritable projectile regurgitation of angst, vitreol, anti-marriage, champagne socialist-popping, cross-dressing, heavy-drinking antics, together with erotic love songs and the general stupidity of people, all delivered with the subtlety of a drunk bull jumping up and down on a punctured aerosol can. There is no other CD in the world like it - the most unique and all-round entertaining piece of plastic available in our solar system. Is this a singing transvestite, a perverted folk-singer with anger management issues ... or a drag queen who can't mime? "When Lulu performs, she not only connects with the audience, she reaches out, brain f*cks them and then elegantly returns them to their seats." Jackie Rozenfeld, Southern FM, Melbourne.
