Let us be clear: this isn’t an exercise in tokenism. This article I’m researching could just as easily be about musicians from Eastern Europe or musicians with brown hair or any other arbitrary definition. In this case, it happened to be based on gender, and I’m just pulling out the tracks I happen to like. As it turns out, The Doubtful Guest – Libby Floyd to her friends – is a former opera singer from Chicago (now living in the UK), who makes acid music. She’s signed to Planet Mu. I haven’t listened to acid since 1988, so it was a strange and welcome experience to revisit this chapter of my aural history. This is pretty enjoyable stuff.
