Former Soft Cell singer and creator of several solo records dedicated to Georges Bataille and Jacques Brel, now releases a record on his own Blue Star label, released here in America on Instinct. The torch singer we know is present on a few of the opening tracks like "Night & Dark" and "Tragedy." Almond has definitely updated his sound, and made an all-around listenable record. Kelli Ali and Siouxie Sioux duet with Marc on certain tracks. Also there are three bonus tracks including the lovely "Satan's Child." Almond's palette is both light and dark, and fans of Gavin Friday and Nick Cave should come round to this one. Not his best, but the first good one in a long time.

Song "Pirate Jenny"
Ahh you people can watch while I’m scrubbing these floors
And I’m scrubbing these floors while you’re gawking
Maybe once you tip me and it makes you feel swell
In this crummy southern town
In this pit of hotel
But you’ll never guess to who you’re talking
You’ll never guess to who you’re talking

Then one night there’s a scream in the night
And you wonder: who could that have been ?
And you see me kind of grinning while I’m scrubbing
And you say what she got to grin ?
I’ll tell ya
There’s a ship
The black freighter
With a skull on it’s mast-head
Will be coming in

You gentlemen say: hey gal, finish them floors
What’s wrong with you ? earn your keep here
You toss me your tips and look to the ships
But I’m counting your heads as I’m making the beds
’cause there’s nobody gonna sleep here tonight

Then one night there’s a scream in the night
And you say: who’s that kicking up a row?
And you see me kinda staring out the window
And you say: what she got to stare at now ?
I’ll tell ya
There’s a ship
The black freighter
Turns around in the harbour
Shooting guns from her bow

Well you gentlemen can wipe those smiles off your face
’cause every building in town is a flat one
This whole frigging place will be down to the ground
Only this cheap hotel standing up, safe and sound
And you yell: why do they spare that one ?
Why the hell do they spare that one ?

All the night through with the noise and to do
And you wonder: who is that person that lives up there ?
And you see me stepping out in the morning
Looking fine with a ribbon in my hair
Well just look at me now
And a ship
The black freighter
Runs a flag up it’s mast-head
And a cheer rings the air. hey!

My ? ? ? on the dock is a swarming with men
Coming out from the ghostly freighter
They’re moving in the shadows where no-one can see
And they’re chaining up people
And delivering ’em to me
Asking me: kill them now or later ?
Asking me: kill them now or later ?

Noon by the clock and so still at the dock
You can hear a fog horn miles away
And in that quiet of death I’ll say:
Right now !
Right now !
And they pile up the bodies
And I’ll say: that’ll learn you.
That’ll learn you.

And the ship
The black freighter
Disappears out to sea
Me !

Andy Warhol 's mostly unknown former lover, an avant garde musician who can count some of the world's most famous artists in popular music among his legion of fans, and an eccentric symbol behind one of the world's most powerful fashion houses are the rather mysterious, but highly creative subjects of three new documentaries that screened during the Berlinale this week.
