whiskey-soaked broken english

Somehow my last posting of Chan Marshall, brought to mind Marianne Faithful. I think she knew how to look cool with out trying too hard, where many of the other girls of that time, really went all out. I know, she had her share of feathers boas and fedora velvet hats... but she had a very sexy little girl look going on.

Like Chan, her early work in pop and rock music in the 1960s was overshadowed by her struggle with drug abuse in the 1970s... um then again in 80s... I have grown to really love listening to her sad powerful halting rasp, the "voice of a woman who's been to hell and back".














quote by Alanna Nash of "Stereo Review"
