Synopsis

Amazon.com
Penelope Houston was young and angry back when Alanis Morissette in the throes of the terrible two's. She first made her mark in 1977 as a member of the seminal San Francisco punk combo the Avengers, who opened for the Sex Pistols at the group's infamous January 1978 Winterland coup de grace. Nearly two decades after the Avengers recorded their only EP, Houston finally got her major-label contract. Cut You, Houston's Reprise debut, is a collection of six new tracks and eight older originals rerecorded for the album. The sound, which went from a scream to a whisper after she left the Avengers, has been beefed up, but the focus remains on the complex emotions that pervade Houston's lyrics.--Steven Stolder

......And with my little kitchen knife ill take a little pie

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Penelope Houston.......how start to describe her? from a wild punk youth with "the avengers" to an interesting maturity as much in the artistic field as in the personal field (she became a gorgeous woman also) she left behind her past, quit her punk bandmates and started a career into folk and pop and some reminisences of her past (punk) into some sort of folk-punk or punk-folk wathever, and she did it in a wonderfull way in her debut "the whole world" wich sounds like a mix of worldbeat rithms along with the styles i mentioned before, in a bohemian mood, this follow up "cut you" have a progression in jazzy rithms, flamenco and even hard rock, just chek the "remake" of "glad im a girl" , "sweetheart" is anoter of my faves Miss Houston can be sweet as much as she is intelligent, "the qualitys of mercy" sounds great and sweet too, "cut you" closes the album with good feminist sense of dark humor.
