Although no longer resident in New York, Lydia Lunch is best known for being a fundamental cog in that city’s “No Wave” scene back in the late 1970s.
Tonight’s set worked fairly chronologically through her work from 1977 onwards. Of course it was everything you would expect it to be – well rehearsed, authentic, moody and dark.
– Sarah Corbett, reviewing Lydia Lunch at the Borderline on August 19th.
