Scene News: Lydia Lunch Retrovirus announces supports for Aust Tour Feb/March 2020

Following 2018’s sold out shows around the country, American singer, poet, writer and actress Lydia Lunch returns to Australia with her all-star cast of sonic brutarians in a holds-barred survey of her musical output from 1977 to present FOR THE FINAL TIME EVER in Australia before she returns them to the dust from which they came.

Including music from Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8 Eyed Spy, Queen of Siam, 1313 and Shotgun Wedding, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus marries No Wave, Skronk, Hard Rock and Psych Jazz to create a dynamic live performance which is dangerous, infectious and aggressively sexy.

Having collaborated with musicians such as Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard, Sonic Youth, Einsturzende Neubauten and James Chance, Lydia has spent decades trolling through the subterranean sick-home black and blues creating a schizophrenic musical legacy which loops fro shrill No Wave to bludgeoning Hard Rock, from smoky jazz noir and illustrated word to macabre psychedelia.
