The album ends with the inevitable descent from Queen to Whore- a pair of songs- We Weren't Always Old Whores- a lament begging forgiveness of the former self for falling short of youthful expectations and You're not a Whore (if no one's paying) -obviously/perhaps about the music business? Any business? features not only tandem tasteful trombone (Allen Pleasants) and gargle solos but a children's chorus. Mark allegedly "borrowed" kids from her brother and Vancouver musical friends The Burnettes, stood them around microphones and had them sing "You're not a horse if no one's NEIGHing" and payed them in ice cream.
Available on VINYL and CD, The Queen of Vancouver Island is now in the terminal.
