Grace Jones’ sleazy mix of funk, dub and new wave reis­sued in style

Australian T3 - - PLAY -

Astew of all the best bits of ’80s mu­sic, from hard-edged funk to dark-vibed, bass-heavy reg­gae, with a soupçon of scratchy, new-wave gui­tar, this is a stone-cold clas­sic, fronted by a stone-cold singer in Grace Jones. Ter­ri­fy­ingly sexy, Jones’ dom­i­na­trix per­sona makes re­sis­tance to songs like the filth­some Pull Up to the Bumper and her cover of Iggy Pop’s Night­club­bing ut­terly fu­tile. The sec­ond disc of ex­tended mixes is also es­sen­tial. $25 CD, $20.99 MP3, out April 14
