I'm not familiar with her solo work (oddly, given my obsession with Australian rock of her generation), but she co-wrote Nick Cave's "From Her to Eternity" and "Stranger Than Kindness" and the Birthday Party's "Dead Joe," and that ain't nothin'.

Time to check out her two platters Mr Toland.
Dirty Pearl is great. She was very underrated.

Indeed. Though they're way the heck out of print, I see. There's nary a (legitimate) copy of Dirty Pearl to be had on Discogs.

She also sang all the Jane Birkin and B Bardot parts for Mick Harvey’s swell Serge Gainsbourg covers albums.

Covering a Chic song, of all things, (“Lost in Music”) was unlikely- imagine Nick going disco - but worked nicely.
