Oh, this here. The Queen of Siam in my arms: Lydia Lunch (her album is called The Queen of Siam). She had a project with Severin back around 82 or so, and she and Robert had a book were they would write things and give it back to each other. Or so I've read or watched somewhere. Also, Lydia's album 1313 has a song called Snakepit Breakdown.
Actually, juxtaposing JOK, Snakepit and Snakepit Breakdown, makes for very scary images
This is certainly a favourite in the transition from the Pornography album.
The Queen Of Siam, as mentioned above, I think is referring to Lydia Lunch and the title of her debut album. 'Remember the time that you reigned all night', appears to be setting the scene for her performances. I have read, I think in Never Enough, that Lydia, (and And Also The Trees) supported The Cure at the end of the Picture Tour (Eight Appearances). The book states that 'Lunch improvised her performances, experimenting with new material and musicians that hadn't yet played together, singing about death, decay and murder, while the crowd stared stony-faced unsure of the wild scenes'. The lyrics at the end of each verse - nobody lifted their eyes, woke up at all and held out their hand, could reflect these unappreciative audiences at what was unfolding in front of them.
