Album Notes
Like the debut album “Darkness To Warm Your Heart” (2008) the Androgyne Show was recorded on 4-track tape and pressed on vinyl only. The analogue approach also extends to the mastering as well as the album artwork: photos shot with an 1860s camera and developed with cyanide on glass plates.
“The Androgyne Show” is a concept album of the Ziggy Stardust tradition, including the blurred sexuality and alien subject matter. The title song tells of an imaginary game show where you win a sex change operation while the losers are sold to slavery. However, the Victorian parlour motif of the debut album is still present in piano tracks like “The Last Room” - the song of the betrayed duchess - or the sonnet song “Modern Love” – a tribute to both poet George Meredith and the composer Beethoven.
The lyrical universe of Sister Chain & Brother John also contains political songs (such as the apocalyptic “When At All Comes Down”) as well as devotional ballads (“On The Roof”) and the inevitable ride into the decadent underworld - before resurfacing at the gates of the lunatic asylum.
Apart from the lonesome piano and the occasional circus drum, Sister Chain & Brother John remain faithful to their minimalist principals: one bass guitar or electric guitar, vocals and effects. But what else does one need in nineteenth century outer space?
