The tenth song completed for the 2013 album from Momus, starring Roman Polanski in drag.
Helen of Troy is an album by John Cale, the last of three albums for Island Records. This album came out without the consent of Cale, who considered that the tapes were not finished. After shipping the first pressings Island Records replaced the track “Leaving It Up to You” with “Coral Moon”, because the former song mentioned Sharon Tate, wife of film director Roman Polanski, who was murdered in 1969 by the Charles Manson gang (Island never updated the cover or label). Things turned sour, and Cale and Island went their separate ways. The CD version contains both tracks.
