Debut album from pioneering French musician, Lizzy Mercier Descloux. During a stay in the USA in 1975, Lizzy befriended musicians such as Richard Hell and Patti Smith. After being exposed to the early sounds of Punk Rock, she began writing songs. Lizzy combined French Pop influences with the minimalist funk of No Wave and released Press Color in 1978. The sounds on this album are all over the place. One track is a dancy full band pop song and the next is an awkward guitar and vocals punk song. Absolutely flawless.
