Synopsis

Album Description
LTM is proud to announce the first release on CD of the second album by Gina X Performance, an acknowledged new wave/electro classic first released in 1980. Formed in Cologne, Germany, the core of Gina X Performance comprised charismatic Gina Kikoine (vocals and lyrics) and writer-producer-musician Zeus B. Held. Between 1979 and 1984 the group released four albums of cool arthouse electro-disco: Nice Mover, X-Traordinaire, Voyeur and Yinglish. Their classic 1979 single No G.D.M. was a club hit on both sides of the Atlantic and remains a cult classic thanks to electro/synthcore compilations such as Nag Nag Nag. Slinky second single Nice Mover is also an established favourite, having appeared on the Andrew Weatherall compilation Nine O?Clock Drop. As well as stand-out tracks Striptease, Opposite Numbers and the single Do It Yourself, this new extended CD edition also features four bonus tracks from the 1984 album Yinglish. In 2005 Q Magazine?s electro-pop special rated No G.D.M. as one of the most influential songs to come out of the Continent a fact made clear by even the most cursory listen to Ladytron, Goldfrapp or Miss Kittin and the Hacker. The CD features twelve digitally remastered tracks and runs for 60 minutes. The booklet preserves the original artwork from the 1980 album release as well as a detailed artist biography.
