Two Stranglers Jean-Jacques Burnel (producer) and Jet Black (drummer) take part in Seppuku; otherwise, France's Taxi Girl here consists of singer Danielle Darc, a keyboard player and guitarist Mirwais, who would grow up to become Madonna's techno-savvy producer. Regardless, Seppuku is a pretentious load of nonsense, suave and arty arrangements and playing ankled by lifeless songs. The bored vocals only mirror the album's likely effect on listeners.
Suite et Fin? is a posthumous compilation containing some previously unreleased material. Quelque Part Dans Paris is a live album recorded in 1979.[Ira Robbins]
