Ah, the church organ. What sinister power drives its practitioners to such arcane, Byzantine lives? If you were to make case studies of Anton LaVey and Baby Dee, you would find a shared ancestry of church organs, circus sideshows, and marketable stage names. But oh, how that road did fork, leading the former to the demonic theremin and the latter to the heavenly harp. With a taste for the bizarre that could only be rivaled by ol' Grampa Satan himself, Baby Dee has found herself riding a 30-year career of unlikely collaborations, most recently with that dark prince of partying, Andrew W.K., who plays bass on her haunting 2008 release, Safe Inside The Day. For those seeking further comparative data: Baby Dee's instrument has a dizzying 47 strings to master. LaVey's precious theremin? Not a one. Plus, he's been dead for 10 years. Baby Dee 2, Satan 0. With Dreamland Faces.
