Lydia Lunch to release ‘A Fistful of Desert Blues’…

Lydia Lunch has spent decades trolling through the subterranean sick-home black and blues creating a musical legacy that started burning down the house in 1977 with Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, and continues to this day. From No Wave teen terror to Muse of the Cinema of Transgression, whether as hardcore spoken word harbinger or chanteuse provocateur she has relentlessly sought new collaborators with whom to dissect passion, obsession and desire.

Cypress Grove is a acoustic blues guitarist who has collaborated with Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan, Debbie Harry, Steve Wynn.

‘A Fistful of Desert Blues’ is a bittersweet symphony of black and acoustic love songs. As beautiful and heart breaking as 12 wayward orphans who wandered in from the badlands searching for a home away from home, this collection showcases the ever-evolving gypsy shape-shifter and her fellow musical vagabond as sonic caretakers offering comfort to those crushed by a love which bruises.

A Fistful of Desert Blues is the bastard love child of two musical outlaws who were thrown together by mysterious circumstances at a friend’s funeral.


A Fistful of Desert Blues will be released in late May 2014 via Italian label Rustblade Records as a CD, Ltd Edition Coloured Vinyl (299 copies), and as a Deluxe Limited Edition Wooden Box (299 copies) which contains: CD + DVD + Text Book + Metal Pil box + Litle bag + Postcard.

All versions are available for Pre-Order direct from Rustblade

Phil Newall is from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
