Limited edition for Black Friday RSD 2014!Next year, Light In The Attic will release a detailed series showcasing the work of impassioned poet, painter, actor, and prolific, self-taught musician Lizzy Mercier Descloux. Instrumental in the late 70s New York underground yet of Parisian origin, Mercier Descloux, with partner Michel Esteban, established the magazine Rock News and ran in the same circles as Patti Smith and Richard Hell. Lizzy became a genre defying artist and pioneer of worldbeat and avant garde rock, and supreme minimalist of the no wave genre in her own right. A glimpse of what's in store for this upcoming archival series, this 7" presents two key tracks from the Mercier Descloux catalog: the epitomic, 1979 disco-punk classic "Fire" backed with a rare session featuring Lizzy and "Godmother of Punk" Patti Smith reciting a bilingual version of Arthur Rimbaud's poem, "Matinée d'ivresse/Morning High," set to music by experimental contemporary Bill Laswell.
