Blonde Redhead Melodie Citronique EP on 12" Vinyl + Download

12-Inch Vinyl Version of 2000 EP

Forming in 1994, Blonde Redhead were thrown together following a chance meeting in New York between Japanese siren Kazu Makino and Milanese twin brothers, Amedeo and Simone Pace. Taking their name from a song by fellow New York no wave artists DNA, location was to prove key to the band's initial experimentations. Forging a sound reflective of New York's rich musical legacy, the early years of Blonde Redhead were very much haunted by the squalling underground scene that has forever pulsed throughout the city.

While indebted to their geography, the release of their self-titled debut in 1994, swiftly followed by the self-produced La Mia Vita Violenta a year later on Steve Shelley's Smells Like label, showed signs that Blonde Redhead were soon to escape the shadow of New York. Indeed, a move west to esteemed Chicago imprint Touch And Go provided the band the opportunity to stretch their wings.

The Mélodie Citronique EP was one of their more experimental efforts on the label, originally issued in 2000. The lions share of the mini-album's five-tracks are sung in French and Italian and "En Particulier," "Odiata per le Sue Virtú" and "Four Damaged Lemons" are alternative versions of songs found on the band's album Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons from earlier the same year.
