Hester Reeve, dressed as Jesus Christ, lip-synchs to the Doors-song: A Spy In The House of Love. Behind her, B-movie girls in black panties or nothing at all, cavort in scenes of Babylonian excess. Also in the act are rainbow fields and amoeboid forms swimming across the frame. The Jesus figure is an ironic comment on the lyrics of the song "I know your deepest secret fear, I know everything", and the almost godlike status of super stardom. A startling and outrageous tape.
(London Electronic Arts Catalogue)

Ein Geschlechter-Crossover in einer provokanten Verbindung von Performance und Video: Hester Reeve als neuer Jesus, der vor einer Videokulisse aus pulsierenden Regenboegen, amoebischen Formen und B-movie-Maedchen in schwarzen Slips den Doors-song "A spy in the house of love" rezitiert.
