Gitane DeMone at A Rrose in a Prose

Gitane didn’t have any copies of this work on paper where I could re-read it–so I’m very glad that Jean-Paul Garnier brought a camera and recorded a lot of these performances at the most recent Rrose in a Prose. Here’s Gitane reading about fish and impregnation and secrets, among other things. I felt like it evoked Georges Bataille by way of H. P. Lovecraft and Walt Whitman, but really there is no way to describe this work, not even with words like “poem” or “story.” She’s as good a writer as she is a singer, a rarity in the rock world.
