01 A Plague Master
02 October Love Song
Portland's premiere pop provocateurs Parenthetical Girls present two epic sides of the bizarre in "The Plague of Marcus (Prelude)" b/w "October Love Song" - vol. Z of Tomlab's storied Alphabet Series. Originally written for The Dorothy K.
Parenthetical Girls' acclaimed collaboration with experimental theater ensemble Implied Violence - this exclusive "band" version of "The Plague of Marcus (Prelude)", marks the song's recorded debut, and finds the Girls reaching a dramatic fever pitch.
Side two is a lovingly crafted tribute to Chris & Cosey's synthpop/sellout masterpiece, "October Love Song," voiced in a rare lead appearance by Parenthetical Girl Rachael Jensen. Parenthetical Girls are presently releasing their latest full-length, Privilege, as a series of 12" EPs via their own Slender Means Society label.
