Rebby Sharp - In One Mouth and Out the Other (1989)


This is a fascinating release from New York's late eighties East Side art scene, the last gasp before the gentrification.  Rebby Sharp plays and sings a strange mix of folk and bluegrass, throwing in conscious lyrics with a fried sense of humour.  She is ably supported by guests such as the Shimmy Disc head honch, Kramer, and underground legends, Fred Frith and Tom Cora.  There's a lovely cover version of The Holy Modal Rounders' Hesitation Blues.
