Lene Lovich Band + Guests on Sat 23rd March 2013
Detroit-born legendary post-punk pop singer Lene
Lovich hit the top of the UK charts with her single Lucky
Number in 1979, and was crowned the Queen of
Quirk, influencing a generation of pop and alternative
acts, from Nina Hagen to Boy George, and from
Madonna to Dresden Dolls. A normally reclusive figure,
Lovich turned her back on the limelight after her third
album No Mans Land was released in 1982 amid
disagreements with her record company about her
unwillingness to compromise her groundbreaking visual
style for the then newly emergent MTV. Subsequently
she has recorded only two albums in the last thirty years.
Lovichs unique vocal and visual style, along with her
catchy but experimental songwriting, has exerted a huge
influence over alternative pop culture and garnered her
many plaudits and continued interest. She has been
described as everything from Kate Bush on acid to the
New Wave Maria Callas. Her hits Lucky Number, Say
When, Bird Song and New Toy are still regular
features in the clubs and radio of Europe, Japan,
Australia and the USA. In May 2012, Lene joined forces
with Subterraneans frontman Jude Rawlins for a
celebration of the music of German composer Kurt Weill.
During the tour they hatched an idea to form a new band
to take Lenes classic material back on the road. Jude
immediately recruited bassist Lydia Fischer and
drummer Morgan King in June, and keyboardist Kirsten
Morrison joined in July. It was a baptism of fire for the
new band, after just one low-key show at Londons
much-loved 12 Bar club, their next appearance was
headlining the annual Drop Dead Festival in Berlin
