Skinner Box - The Imaginary Heart Of...

Julianna Towns is probably best known for her contribution to Black Tape for a Blue Girl. She was also a member (guitar) of the punk band, Peace Corpse.

This is one of her solo albums... it's a rather magnificent darkwave-ish record, leaning a bit on dark cabaret noir and neo-classical, I think, and includes a pretty cover of "United" by Throbbing Gristle. And "The Long Gun" is, well, a long song! xD
I think it was released in 1990 and recorded in the Sound Factory, Tucson.

Sorry it ain't all crystal clear, it popped lots. >_>

You can also grab the self-titled at Phoenix Hairpins. I was gonna post that one myself eventually too, but there it is anyway! 8)
