Icon-Lydia Lunch

Lydia in Richard Kern's film "The Right Side of My Brain" got me into so much good poetry and No-Wave. I became obsessed with Lydia and Exene's book Adulterers Anonymous.Their poetry is what inspired me to write. Paradoxia: A Predator's Diary blew me away.I fell in love with Sonic Youth and Death Valley 69 and Harry Crews. Lydia is prolific and crosses genre boundaries as much as she steps over the line of obscenity/foul mouthed anti-status quo lovliness.

As you might have guessed, I'm really into iconoclastic women who keep on creating their whole lives. She's still rock'n'rollin' Damn.

"I will live! And I will, not necessarily well, but with verve, vigor and a hell of a lot of vinegar." --Lydia Lunch 2008
