Maldoror was formed when Patton, who had an interest in Japanese noise music, had some days off while on tour in Australia with Faith No More. He contacted Masami Akita and the two performed some improvised noise shows. They then recorded She at a recording studio in Tokyo, Japan. Maldoror have performed a few additional shows in later years.
AllMusic panned the release, writing "These two notorious avant-garde noise experimentalists have joined forces [...] to produce, well, avant-garde experimental noise. For a couple of 'experimentalists', the result is disappointingly predictable."
