The mid-1980s was a highly productive time for Rik Rue. Along with releasing often more than one cassette a year, he was also meeting a diverse range of new artists to collaborate with. One of the strangest of these collaborators, he says, was Fifi L’Amour.
L’Amour was a pioneer of often-surreal cabaret performance in late-1970s Sydney, co-founding Cabaret Conspiracy. She moved to Europe in 1985 where she continued to perform. She died in 2012.
