WINER, LESLIE - &C. (CD)


"Limited Edition CD in A5 Wallet, 500 copies. "Leslie Winer &c." brings together tracks from the first two decades of Leslie Winer's extensive yet little-known body of work. The earliest pieces, recorded in the late eighties, appeared on her debut solo album "Witch" [Transglobal/Rhythm King, 1993]. First issued as a white label pressing in 1990 and featuring Jah Wobble, Karl Bonnie and Helen Terry, the album earned Winer the distinction 'grandmother of trip hop'. After the official release of "Witch" in 1993, Winer all but disappeared from public view, making only sporadic guest appearances on releases by such varied artists as Jon Hassell (1994), Bomb the Bass (1995) and Mekon (2000). While she has continued to record throughout the nineties and noughties, little of Winer's work has surfaced, until now. Some of the material from the two albums she cut in the mid-1990s with Joe Galdo at South Beach Studios in Miami appeared in 2010 on The Tapeworm's release "& That Dead Horse". Other tracks from these projects and her collaborations with Vincent Gallo appear here for the first time. Throughout her career Winer has worked with artists as divergent as Holger Hiller, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Dale Cornish and her songs have been recorded by Sinead O'Connor, Boy George and Grace Jones. Her most recent collaboration with French musician and producer Christophe Van Huffel, Purity Supreme, resulted in a four-track vinyl EP "Always Already", released last year by Ash International. "Leslie Winer &c." is a product of The Wormhole. Its release precedes the launch of Winer's first volume of poems, "10 Pomes Fin (Irish Wristwatch)", soon to be published by The Bookworm."
