No Wave iconoclast and Big Sexy Noise-queen Lydia Lunch returns to OTO after a fantastic, sold-out show here last year. RETROVIRUS sees her joined by Herculean guitarist Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers), fret-destroying bassist Tim Dahl (Child Abuse) and legendary skins-basher Bob Bert (Sonic Youth/Pussy Galore).
“Lunch is a force among vocalists/presences, and it’s wonderful to be reminded of that so keenly. Her nuance, power, and theatrical dynamism are certainly front-and-center here, but with a cracking ensemble sonically dropped in from the prime era of scum, Retro Virus is also some of the most empathetic music Lunch has made.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
