"THE INEVITABLE CHRYSTALE BELLE-SCRODD RECORD"
The debut l.p. from DIANA ROGERSON
Utilising the varied & considerable talents of, amongst ohers, Karl Blake (of SHOCK-HEADED PETERS infamy), the enigmatic Robert Haigh, Tathata Wallis and Sema, and working with the assistance of the much-acclaimed Steven Stapleton, Diana Rogerson (of NURSE WITH WOUND) has nurtured a truly remarkable record which is already being hailed by those who have heard it.
At present working exclusively in the realm of sound, Rogerson first came to light as an "underground" film maker. Her work has been screened at the London Film Makers' Co-Op, I.C.A., Brixton Ritzy, Air Gallery and Sheffield & Hornsey Art Colleges, meeting with widespread acclaim. A video release by CABARET VOLTAIRE's "DOUBLEVISION" label of an anthology of these films is planned for the future. In 1981 she founded FISTFUCK (and later "The Whore"). These uncompromising live acts, working in the area of sex & sleaze, were loud, provocative, extreme, dangerous and funny: sexual parodies were performed to stunned audiences throughout London's nightclubs and galleries, engendering much controversy and accruing a large & loyal following in the process.
Since the demise of The Whore, Rogerson has confined her attentions to music, working with such luminaries as NURSE WITH WOUND, SPK, SHOCK-HEADED PETERS, ANNIE ANXIETY and CURRENT 93, both live and on record. She has also collaborated with JIM FOETUS on a recent NURSE WITH WOUND 12" single, working under the name of Chrystale Quimm. NB: As you may notice, the test pressing isslightly substandard on side II and has since been re-cut & re-pressed.
