"Munster Records present a reissue of Étant Donnés's Re-Up, originally released in 1999. For Re-Up, France's Étant Donnés (Eric & Marc Hurtado) brought in Alan Vega, Lydia Lunch and Genesis P-Orridge to provide lyrics and vocals for specific contributions. Vega, featured on the first four tracks, juxtaposes his stream-of-conscious vocals with the phasing pulses and analog crackles and sighs on "Shadows Lights", responding to the rhythmic ticking and splintering synth on the title cut, helping on a track he originally wrote with Martin Rev to cover Suicide's "Ghost Rider" with an eerie Elvis Presley vamp, along with the epic "Brutal Piss Rods". Lydia Lunch follows on "Sexodrone", a lengthy piece where treated trumpet from Mark Cunningham duels with Lunch's breaths and icy cold delivery. Genesis P-Orridge brings along a different feel with a steady spoken word work on the three final tracks: the metallic gongs, bells and revolving synth washes of "At Last", the companion piece "Angel With Iron Wings" and "Secret Tear". The latter track also features Bachir Attar, leader of The Master Musicians Of Jajouka, playing the ghaita; P-Orridge and Attar conclude the voyage with a vigorous call-and-response between P-Orridge's instrument of flesh (voice) and Attar's human-made one. A perfect soundtrack for sensual explorers. The last bonus track is a 2014 remix of "Ghost Rider" by Marc Hurtado that gives the feeling of being transported into the center of an intergalactic war. Packaged in new artwork."
