A smouldering electro-gospel number featuring the distinctively gritty vocalisations of the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, Recoil's "Jezebel" is one of the more accessible tracks off the one-man band's (a.k.a. Alan Wilder, late of Depeche Mode) 2000 album "Liquid". Combining the spiritual-isnpired scat singing of Quartet lead tenor Orlandus Wilson with Wilder's detailed industrial-techno shadings turned out to be one hell of a masterstroke, as evidenced in the the track's evocative ambience and atmopsheric instrumentation. Check out the surreal, cinematic black-and-white video clip here.
