Singer, Poet, Writer, Actress and Spoken Word Artist LYDIA LUNCH is coming to Detroit This Saturday for a musical retrospect and a lecture.
Lydia Lunch RETROVIRUS is an all-star cast of sonic brutarians in a no-holds-barred survey of Lunch’s musical output, from 1977 to the present. Including music from Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8 Eyed Spy, Queen of Siam, 1313 and Shotgun Wedding. Lydia Lunch has spent decades trolling through the subterranean sick-home black & blues creating a schizophrenic musical legacy which loops from shrill No Wave to bludgeoning hard rock, from smoky jazz noir and illustrated word to macabre psychedelia. Lunch is joined in RETROVIRUS by guitarist Weasel Walter (The Flying Luttenbachers, Lake of Dracula), drummer Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore), and bassist Tim Dahl.
Preceding the concert, Lunch and Walter will present No Wave Now, a lecture that traces the cultural history of No Wave which Lunch is often considered a pioneer of.
