LYDIA LUNCH / RETROVIRUS – URGE TO KILL

Thomas Bellflower April 20, 2015

No wave iconoclastic Lydia Lunch, the big, sexy noise-queen of sonic brutarians along with herculean guitarist Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers), fret-destroying bassist Tim Dahl (Child Abuse) and legendary skins-basher Bob Bert (Sonic YouthPussy Galore) are about to unleash URGE TO KILL the follow up to last years face melting live recording by RETROVIRUS.

Recorded live in the studio in early 2015 URGE TO KILL stomps new life into classics from Lydia’s immense catalog. Included are the tracks: “Snakepit Breakdown” and “Lock Your Door” from “13.13”, “Fields Of Fire” and “Three Kings” from “Honeymoon In Red”, the Rowland S. Howard slow scorcher “Still Burning”, “Some Boys” from the EP “In Limbo”, “Tied and Twist” from “Queen Of Siam”, as well as a gloriously manic reworking of Suicide’s “Frankie Teardrop”.
