Lydia Lunch.
It wasn't her real name, of course. Lydia Koch...I think I read that somewhere. She earned the moniker because she used to filch food to feed her famished and impoverished musician friends.
Punk priestess. Poet. Iconoclast. Outspoken activist.
She'd risen from the blackened scrawl of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks; a gang of musical miscreants who produced venomous, no-fi punk tunes that blazed past in a blitzkrieg of dissonant guitars and Lunch's shredded howls. Most of the tracks barely scraped the two minute mark. Even now, re-released and cleaned up by Cherry Red Records they still reek of damp and mould; a thin, dirty sound - half white noise.
Her debut solo album - the first under her real/not-real name was a different deal altogether.
'Queen of Siam' (1980 - original release).
I'm not sure what you'd call it. Noirish jazz meets noise rock. Big band sass and swing colliding with a hail of razor-toothed no-wave guitars, all topped off with Lunch's trademark drawl and slur of a vocal style.
Bachelor pad music for those with murderous intentions.
Cartoon jazz. Hell, they brought in the orchestra best known for playing 'the Flintsones' theme music. Not a yabba dabba doo in sight here though, just that voice...not the whiskey-and-cigarettes predator rasp of her later recordings, or the bile-spitting screeches of some of her other works. Here Lunch plays a coquette; her flat, almost affect-less croon sounds girlish, childlike, even (dare I say it): cute. But there's the old bite there, the concealed knife, the sharp teeth behind the soft lips. She's Betty Boop with blood on her shirt.
Lydia Lunch has never been much of a singer; but she's always been one hell of a vocalist.
And she doesn't really sing here. At all.
