Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, The Januaries (2000)
The first image that came to mind was that I was witnessing a crossing of Stereolab doing the Bossa Nova. I kept getting the sense that I was in an airport, but in a nice way. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
A good earthy vocal, but not overdoing it in that 'utter disdain' style of singing that is so popular these days. A voice with the cool darkness of Nico housed with the punk sassiness of Blondie (Ooops; did I just age myself?). Not a great voice, but it's well matched with the music.
Recommended first album:
The Januaries is their debut
The Januaries (2000)
Debbie Diamond—vocals, guitar
Richard Hardy—bass clarinet, flute, alto flute on 1 track
John Fields and Rick Boston
I would buy this record in a minute! See general comments about for more specific comments about the album. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
