- various artists / Doris Kloster (photography)
this a CD with a free book? Or a book with a free CD? Well, the
answer to both questions is 'yes', but if forced to choose, I'd
probably go with the former... although it's the latter which
is more worthy of attention.
is a French compilation CD featuring mostly instrumental tracks
(a few have vocals used as instruments, but there are no 'songs'
as such) by a variety of artists, none of who I've heard of. The
music is a mixed bag, broadly speaking dance, and presumably is
intended as the soundtrack to a night of fetish pleasure. Opener
Sepuku Rhapsody by Banzai Spirit is very much the spirit
of thing you'd expect to find on a Michael Ninn film for instance,
while other tracks range from faceless trance (Tribal Mastress)
to cheesy Euro disco (Sex Priest), sub-Orb ambience (Eleanor Gray)
to discordant, David Lynch-inspired soundscapes (Lovin' Furs).
Standout tracks are Saint Andre Cross Bless You by St Esmeralda
Mission and Ultime Discipline by Etienne de Vuarney, both
of which have a moody, throbbing and sinister insistence about
them - ideal for sexual rituals.
nothing to actually show that these really are tracks by a variety
of bands, rather than a single act using various names (and the
fact that there are only three writers credited for all 18 tracks
reinforces this theory), but as it goes, this isn't at all awful
if used as background music. I can imagine that it might well
work as the soundtrack to a dungeon scenario if music is your
bag when cracking the whip.
And Certainly, this is worth picking up just for the package.
The 30 page booklet features the fantastic work of Doris Kloster,
taken from her various books. Those of you unfamiliar with her
work can expect a feast of female domination, glorious fetish
outfits, lets of leg and foot glorification and stunning women!
a nice package and one worth getting hold of I'd suggest. Quite
where you can actually pick Fetish up from is anyone's
guess - you can email
FGL and ask 'em I suppose!
