Album Notes
Since 2012, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus has stalked the globe delivering a terrifying campaign of musical brutality to gaping audiences far and wide in a muscular, stripped-down display of incendiary mania. The ensemble re-envisions classic material associated with the iconic multimedia artist Lydia Lunch with a modern gaze, alternately brutal and refined. "Urge To Kill" is the first full-length studio offering by the band, following their 2013 live release on ugEXPLODE/Interbang Records. The 9 titles here run a gamut from sorrow to violence, hallucination to assault. Including titles from early Lunch albums like "Queen of Siam", "In Limbo", "Honeymoon in Red" and "13.13." to carefully curated material by close associates like Suicide, Roland S. Howard and 8 Eyed Spy, this sonically powerful recording transforms the vintage compositions into fully modern visions, while carefully acknowledging the spirit and arrangements of the originals. Lead by Lydia Lunch, the group also features guitarist Weasel Walter (The Flying Luttenbachers, Cellular Chaos), bassist Tim Dahl (Child Abuse) and drummer Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore).
