Anita Lane

20th Anniversary Reissue Of Sex O’Clock

AVAILABLE ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME

LISTEN TO ‘HOME IS WHERE THE HATRED IS’ HERE

“Lane’s work immortalises important themes of human experience, holding awkward and difficult feelings up to the light, to see them in all their imperfect beauty and wonder.” – The Quietus

Mute have announced details of the 20th anniversary reissue of Anita Lane’s second studio album, Sex O’Clock, set for release – for the first time on vinyl – on 10 December 2021: https://mute.ffm.to/al-soc

Initially released in 2001, work began with Anita Lane on the reissue before her untimely passing earlier this year, at the age of 61. The album has long been considered under-appreciated, with The Quietus recently asserting that Lane’s exploration of sexuality was way ahead of its time.

The album – honest, funny and often melancholic – features stand out tracks ‘The Next Man That I See’, ‘Do the Kamasutra’ and an acidic cover of Gil Scott-Heron’s ‘Home Is Where the Hatred Is’. Recorded with long time musical partner, Mick Harvey, the album was the final release in a solo career that began in 1988 with the release of the Dirty Sings EP.

Emerging from Melbourne’s post-rock scene, Anita Lane was one of the co-founders of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, co-writing ‘From Her To Eternity’, the title track of their debut album and ‘Stranger than Kindness’ from Your Funeral… My Trial. Arriving in London in 1980 with The Birthday Party, she’s credited with co-writing several of their tracks – ‘A Dead Song’, ‘Dead Joe’ and ‘Kiss Me Black’ before re-locating to Berlin. There followed a series of collaborations that included work with Einstürzende Neubauten, Chrislo Haas, Gudrun Gut and Die Haut, a memorable cover of ‘These Boots Were Made for Walking’ with Barry Adamson and vocals for Mick Harvey’s first two Serge Gainsbourg albums, Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants.

After her unexpected passing in April 2021, tributes were paid from around the world from a host of artists, with Nick Cave remembering Lane as “the smartest and most talented of all of us, by far”. 

Sex O’Clock is released on vinyl and CD (both with lyric booklet) on 10 December 2021, marking the 20th anniversary of its original release.
