Marianne Faithfull With Special Guests: Only Connect Festival, Barbican, London

Sylvie Simmons, MOJO, May 2002

SHE SLINKS on wearing a black suit with impossibly tight trousers and smoking a cigarette. Four young men play 'Sex With Strangers' dry, cobwebby beat, from latest album Kissin Time. A voice like a government health warning talk-sings over the top. It sounds marvellous, better than on the album, like disco music for ghosts.

Total word count of piece: 660
