Jane Wiedlin ‎– World On Fire (US 12″)

A US only release from former Go-Go’s member, Jane Wiedlin. Synth pop with a soupcon of guitar, lively remixes from Justin Strauss with Daniel Abraham, with a slight hint of the B-52’s in the vocal delivery. Quite good sound for 1990 and nice quirky video too from Julien Temple. More jangley guitars are evident on the B-side, an album track “Flowers On The Battlefield” – pure Americana rock, with a great guitar solo.

“flames of love climbing up my pantyhose” indeed Jane, indeed.
