YOUTHFUL LaVALLEYby Brett Milano
Former Killing Joke member Youth has lately been working with some high-profile artists; in recent years he collaborated with Paul McCartney (on the pseudonymous remix album by the Firemen) and Crowded House, producing their last album. Now he's hooked up with former Tribe singer Janet LaValley and produced her solo debut, which was completed this month but won't be out until January. Youth also played bass on the album, which so far bears the intriguing title Extraordinary Popular Delusions (and the Madness of Crowds).
