||Men Album CDs (2005)
Diana Obscura albums Epic both in length and in its recording, Jarboe's six-year-in-the-making THE MEN ALBUM project features contributions from many of the Swans vocalist's co-conspirators over the past two decades. Legendary Pink Dots' Edward Ka-Spel, Einsturzende Neubaten and Bad Seeds member Blixa Bargeld, Jim Thirlwell, and Ministry's Chris Connelly are among the extensive and stylistically varied roster of underground legends on offer here. Each brings his unique sonic vision to Jarboe's probing, passionate voyage through the feminine psyche as seen through male eyes.
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.
