Blink & wink 03:53
I blink and wink my eyes to erase memory to eclipse all of me I blink and wink my eyes to erase my lonely indulgence, my growing nightmares my blurred vision my blurred vision of me of me I blink and wink my eyes to erase memory Then I fall back to sleep I try to reach some illusions Turn over turn turn and turn over I blink to find again a look that reveals me to erase my blurred vision of me of me I’ve got sand in my eyes my eyes To eclipse To eclipse To eclipse To eclipse all of me I blink and wink my eyes to eclipse all of me

How Nice 04:01
We could slide in the love nest Not bother about the rest We could live on nothing And believe in circle swings You just have to follow me, follow me We don’t drive those stupid cars I don’t like the gasoline We will catch the slowest train How nice are those electric lights How nice are those sparkling rides We could slide in the love nest We could live on nothing on nothing And believe in circle swings You just have to follow me, follow me How nice are those electric lights How nice are those sparkling rides Oh darling

Je veux me cacher Oublier Tout oublier N’être plus rien Ne plus rien vouloir. Ne plus écouter J’ai encore changé de rouge à lèvre Je l’ai pris plus sombre et cendré Je ne veux plus souffrir Etre inexistante. Etre aussi méfiante Me terrer sous les draps d’avoir trop pleurée J’ai encore changé de rouge à lèvre Je l’ai pris plus sombre et cendré Encore changé de rouge à lèvre, encore changé de rouge à lèvre, plus sombre

I Dream 03:46
I open I enter The French voyage I’m a victim of myself I dream of a coffee I dream of an iced kiss I dream of sweets to crunch I dream of a capsule to fly And the smoke I dream I dream take away the smoke from my eyes I dream of an iced kiss I dream of sweets to crunch I dream of a capsule to fly

No 5 04:15
poupoupidou La nuit est plus noire Dans l’obscurité Je n’ai que mon n°5 Pour me protéger, le ventre noué Je sais, je me sens regardée Ce baisé a un drôle de goût Un petit goût d’amoniaque La nuit est plus noire Je sais qu’il existe des pilules pour dormir dormir dormir dormir Mais je préfère garder ce goût d’amoniaque dormir dormir

Tango 04:34
More than ever I wish a man would guide me Dispossessed off mind Off mind Off mind He must be strong to guide our steps Not letting him dream of if It’s just gazing but no touching Oh I’m all shivering In a tango world disillusioned and burnt In a tango world I select my place Slip on my high heels Waiting without blushing I silently resign to light When one look is enough to catch me Just one look enough to catch me I will rise and face the man I will rise and face the man In a tango world disillusioned and burnt In a tango world disillusioned and burnt I will rise and face the man I will rise and face the man

La Chute 03:24
Je me laisse happer Je ne me retiens plus C’est une jolie chute Je me laisse avaler Je verrai bien dans l’air si je suis du bon coté Tout me remonte dans le ventre comme quand dans le manège Comme quand dans mes cauchemars Je tombais de la fenêtre, comme quand dans le manège La tête en bas j’ouvrirai les yeux Je verrai bien dans l’air si je suis du bon côté Je me laisse happer Je ne me retiens plus C’est une jolie chute Je me laisse avaler Je verrai bien dans l’air si je suis du bon côté

Luna Parc 03:57
De paillettes éffritées seules restent les cendres Des promoteurs harnachés rasent le parc Luna Parc Paillettes Oh bye bye Luna Parc Tu tombes en ruine de toute part A tout jamais enseveli De rêveries au loin enfouies Une nouvelle attraction est née Grandeur et décadence Décadence Oh bye bye Luna Parc Oh bye bye Luna Parc Paillette Oh bye bye Luna Parc, Luna Parc, Luna Parc On les entends chanter Luna Parc Oh lord oh doux milord laisseras tu construire un lieu noir de discorde De rêveries au loin enfouies Une nouvelle attraction est née Grandeur et décadence Oh bye bye Luna Parc, luna parc, luna parc luna parc

Tunnel 01:30
He was small and he had a suit with white stripes and He was looking at me as he was smoking his cigarette and the smoke was coming on to my face and the smoke

10 years ago, Gerhard Potuznik released my debut album 'Luna Parc Hotel' on his Vienna based label Angelika Koehlermann. For this I will always be grateful to Gerhard.
'Luna Parc Hotel' was produced in Paris between 2003-2005 with my first ever computer, a white 13" Mac I-book running Pro Tools through an M Box.

To mark this significant anniversary, Cat Werk is making 'Luna Parc Hotel' available as digital on 06.03.2016. Also included in the release, as a bonus item, is a high quality digital version of my handmade arty scrapbook which combines various notes on the process of producing the album, splashes of paint and previously unseen photos.

The album has been remastered by Paul Kendall at the Tin Foil studio.
Catalogue number is CW09.
The new cover image is a self-portrait shot circa 2004 in Paris, initially discarded for the artwork release.

Notably the album features a duet with Michael J Sheehy (guitar) on the David Bowie song 'The Motel', which was recorded live at Michael's flat in Bloomsbury London in 2004.
