So much mumbo-jumbo’s been made of adolescent art, of pop or rock voicing the vainglorious views of each new generation, washing the sins of the fathers (and mothers) from the hands of the kids, that it’s long been forgotten that the real truth lies in tantrum.

Most lucrative noise is – and always has been – made by (non) musicians old enough to know better, but never prepared to admit or accept it. It’s not a well-aimed kick against growing up and its values, but a blind sulk and shout about already being there. Pop is a toddler’s plea for selfish attention, a “me, me, me, me” not an “I told you so”. It’s mean and it’s meaningless. And that’s its great beauty.

The Birthday Party, more than most, appreciate the perverse practicality of making a row. They’re obnoxious, so much so that they piss people off. Not only the cliched old fuddy-duddies and traditional church wardens, but also the hipsters and boffins who fawn and dote over pop flash and fact.

The Birthday Party are awful. Subversively awful. Awfully great. Awesomely brilliant. “Drunk On The Pope’s Blood” is their second really BAD long-playing record. Recorded live at the Venue, it struggles – in vain – to capture and/or castrate the ranting confrontation of their stage act. “Get involved … say something!” Nick Cave screams while Beefheart is brutally butchered behind.

Back beyond basics, this is what punk ought to be like – angry and futile with nothing to say and barely the words to express it. The critics turn pop into protest because that gives it a comforting logic, an aim and direction that renders it open to sane comprehension. Sheer bloody-minded pointlessness is too mad and too menacing.

The Birthday Party are violently pointless. That’s why they’re important. Their “16 minutes of sheer hell” is all ugly feedback. Unlistenably listenable. Love it to death.

Lydia Lunch’s unpleasant squawking on the other side is even more potent. I hate it. It neither exasperates nor elevates. It irritates. And that, or course, is exactly the point.

Ah art! Don’t you just love it?

Lydia Lunch – Widowspeak



Lydia Lunch – Widowspeak (1998, compilation)

Here’s the pioneer of indie, the princess of punkdom, the queen of New York, the chief cunt of confrontationalism, the flame of Fingeredom, the Nosferatu of No Wave, the great Lydia Lunch!

After arriving in New York City at the age of 16, Lunch moved into a large communal household of artists and musicians in NYC, including Kitty Bruce, daughter of Lenny Bruce. Soon after she earned the surname “Lunch” by regularly stealing lunches for her artist friends.

After befriending the ‘godfathers of punk’ Suicide at Max’s Kansas City, she founded the short-lived but influential No Wave band Teenage Jesus & the Jerks in 1976 with her artistic partner, No Wave punk-funk-jazz musician James Chance. Both appeared on the seminal No Wave compilation No New York. Lunch later appeared on two songs on Chance’s album Off White (credited to James White and the Blacks; Lunch used the pseudonym “Stella Rico”) in 1978.

She appeared in two films directed by the husband and wife film-making team of Scott B and Beth B; In the short film Black Box (1978) she played an unnamed torturer, and in the feature length, neo-noir thriller Vortex (1983) she played a private detective named “Angel Powers”. During this time, she also appeared in a number of films by Vivienne Dick, including She Had her Gun All Ready (1978) and Beauty Becomes The Beast (1979), co starring with Pat Place.

In the mid-’80s she formed her own recording and publishing company called “Widowspeak” on which she continues to release a slew of her own material from songs to spoken word.

A self-avowed ‘confrontationalist’ identified by the Boston Phoenix as “one of the 10 most influential performers of the ’90s”, Lunch’s solo career featured collaborations with musicians such as J. G. Thirlwell, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Nick Cave, Billy Ver Plank, Steven Severin, Robert Quine, Sadie Mae, Rowland S. Howard, Michael Gira, The Birthday Party, Einstürzende Neubauten, Sonic Youth, Die Haut, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and Black Sun Productions. She also acted in, wrote, and directed underground films, sometimes collaborating with underground filmmaker and musician Richard Kern (including several films such as Fingered in which she performed unsimulated sex acts), and more recently has recorded and performed as a spoken word artist, again collaborating with such artists as Exene Cervenka, Henry Rollins, Don Bajema, Hubert Selby Jr., and Emilio Cubeiro, as well as authoring both traditional books and comix (with award-winning graphic novel artist Ted McKeever).

Simon Reynolds, author of Rip It Up and Start Again : Postpunk 1978-1984, wrote: “And although ‘affection’ is possibly an odd word to use in reference to a bunch of nihilists, I do feel fond of the No Wave people. … there are great moments throughout Lydia Lunch’s long discography.”
