Lydia Lunch

8. October 2021

Lydia Lunch is passionate, confrontational and bold. Whether attacking the patriarchy and their pornographic war mongering, turning the sexual into the political or whispering a love song to the broken hearted, her fierce energy and rapid fire delivery lend testament to her warrior nature. Queen of No Wave, muse of The Cinema of Transgression, writer, musician, poet, spoken word artist and photographer, she has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up. She performs in a variety of mediums, is a rabid collaborator and continues to release new music as well as re-issuing classic material from her vast catalogue of written and musical works. Since 2019 she has been hosting The Lydian Spin a weekly podcast that features musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers in conversation. Her decades long career is the subject of The War is Never Over, a feature length documentary by Beth B –which is touring the USA, UK and Europe in the summer and fall of 2021.
