Cristina: Cristina (Ze lLPS7004)
Roy Trakin, Melody Maker, 29 March 1980
TAKE ONE graduate from a snooty Ivy League College, holding a degree in, say, Abstract Philosophy. Add a dash of new journalism, a patently fake German accent and temper with a camp persona, somewhat left of Amanda Lear. Then give arch romantic August Darnell free range to weave one of his latter-twentieth-century-disco-alienation-by-way-of-swing-era production numbers and — voila —you have Cristina.
