Six years in the making, Jarboe's THE MEN ALBUM is finally revealed via a twenty track Double-CD, showcasing the impressive range of her interests & artistry. THE MEN brings together an eclectic global roster of artists from diverse musical backgrounds- whose only commonality, for the most part, is Jarboe herself. Beyond the music, THE MEN ALBUM examines the dreams of a woman, and the exploration therein of her identity as seen through the 'masculine gaze'. Featured artists include Blixa Bargeld (Einsterzende Neubauten, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), Alan Sparhawk (LOW), Jim Thirlwell (Foetus), Edward Kaspel (Legendary Pink Dots), Paz Lenchantin (Zwan, RTX), David Torn (David Bowie, David Sylvian), Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks, Ministry, Pigface), David J (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets, The Jazz Butcher), Percy Howard (Bill Laswell, Meridiem), Steve Von Till (Neurosis), Joseph Budenholzer (Current 93, Lydia Lunch), Mika Vainio (PanSonic, Bjork), and many more 'darkside' collaborators.
