Synopsis

Amazon.com
She can't sing worth a damn, and there are other performance artists/monologists (Karen Finley, Kathy Acker) who are more effective at slicing and dicing their targets and exposing the seamy underside of our current culture. But what makes Maggie Estep a reason for living his her attitude, which-more than the musical backing by guitarist Knox Chandler-is pure rock & roll. Maybe you caught her on MTV or heard her first album, 1994's No More Mr. Nice Girl. Whether you're a fan or you're completely unfamiliar with her work, this disc is well worth checking out for loving portraits such as "Scab Maids On Speed," valuable insights such as "How to Get Free Hamburgers," and ballsy dares such as "Stalk Me." You gotta love a woman who's this fearless. --Jim Derogatis

CD Reviews

I SUDDENLY FELT THE EARTH'S ROTATION & HELD ON FOR DEAR LIFE
Raymond J. Impastato (rjimpastato@m | New Orleans | 12/19/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Maggie Estep's "Love is a dog from Hell" is a brilliant link to her first effort, "No More Mister Nice Girl"(1994). When coupled with her equally brilliant and biting first novel, "Diary of an Emotional Idiot", you quickly become thrust into the turbulent, near-primordial pool that spawned her. Maggie's angst-driven, in your face views on life and living draw out all the emotions and experiences we have repressed from childhood, giving us pause to think about what really may have formed our personalities and caused us to become the people we are. From our first loves to our first jobs, Maggie stirs the deepest waters in all of us, causing anyone who listens to her hypnotic oratory to ask the question, "Who am I? And what the HELL am I doing here?" LOVE IS A DOG FROM HELL may be one of the testaments that truly defines the generation of people who have occupied the planet in the latter half of the 20th century better than any historian ever could. Buy it! Play it! Believe it!"
