Karen Finley – Lick It! (Belgium 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd July 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

Explicit Lyrics

“Lick It!” is a 1988 12″ single recorded by American performance artist Karen Finley. Produced by Mark Kamins “Lick It” is a solid house track set to Finley’s poet musing. Soon after this single’s release Finley released a full studio album titled “The Truth Is Hard To Swallow” however “Lick It” did on appear on the LP. Soon afterwards, she became a highly visible symbol of US Congress’ efforts to deny NEA (National Endowment For The Arts) grants to potentially offensive material, as Senator Jesse Helms blasted Finley in 1990 for a piece in which she smeared chocolate over her nude body. When the NEA refused her application for a grant because of the content of her work, she and three other similarly affected artists sued; a federal district court declared the so-called “standards of decency” provision unconstitutional in 1992, a decision upheld four years later by the Circuit Court of Appeals.
