Lydia Lunch UK tour RETROVIRUS

Lydia Lunch is in the UK. Her tour is called RETROVIRUS and she's on fire. She's got Bob Bert from Sonic Youth on drums. Tim Dahl on bass and Weasel Walter on guitar.

A young Lydia Lunch came to UK with her band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks in 1977. I swear she played the Vortex the night Elvis Presley died. I remember her in the shoebox of white light that was the stage there, in silouhette, with Bradley Fields on one drum and one cymbal to her right, playing standing up, and the guitarist to her left. Unforgettable.

One of my favourite songs of all time is Final Solution by Pere Ubu. Here's her cover of it:
