Exploring “cannibal pioneers”, western film tropes, and self-help culture.
David Behrman, Paul DeMarinis, Fern Friedman, Terri Hanlon, and Anne Klingensmith’s collaborative 1981 LP, She’s More Wild… has been released in full for the first time, via Black Truffle.
The album began as a “western performance noir” art piece, focusing on a series of clichéd roles – The Recording Artist, The Former Movie Star, and The Rancher – comically recited by female narrators.
She’s More Wild… also includes references to the Donner party cannibals, and offers satirical interpretations of self-help culture, spanning from spoken monologues to country and western waltz.
The album was recorded at Mills College in 1981, and self-released as a 3 track 7″.
Black Truffle’s release of She’s More Wild… marks the LP’s full-length debut.
