||Helping to define the New York no-wave scene in the late 1970s, Lydia Lunch's band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were both seminal and short-lived, and served to launch a career that would be characterized by a diversity of styles and mediums. Always iconoclastic, Lunch's work has consistently addressed themes of obsession, death, sex, and the dark side of existence, but she has utilized various styles of music, film, and spoken word to convey her message. This concert, held in 2003 in Graz, Austria, serves as a comprehensive retrospective of the various stages of Lunch's artistic production. Aggressively confrontational, all the songs work to dispel complacency, earning the artist a place in the rock & roll canon, even while ensuring her position in the underground--where she is perfectly happy to remain. Including such songs as "Gospel Singer," "Run Through the Jungle," "Psychic Anthropology," "Twisted," and "The Need To Feed," the musicians featured in the performances include Nels Cline, Norman Westberg, Algis Kyzis and Vinnie Signorelli.
