Album Review

Said to be a prelude to an imminent album and billed as a double EP, despite adding up to well over 90 minutes of music (single LPs have been known to be a third as long), The Beauty in Distortion/The Land of the Lost has been downplayed as a teaser release, which is understandable since there is a wide range of material offered up, a fair amount of filler included. However, between the two discs, there is a single LP's worth of prime neo-new wave synth funk, much of it attractively twisted and dipped in sleaze.

Davey, originally from from St. Louis, Missouri, was in a group that was signed to MCA but failed to release anything. For several years, Davey and D'Leau, the self-proclaimed "black Eurythmics," worked the live circuit and built their reputation...
