“It’s hard to think of a performer who makes it clear that you should not mess with him, like Lydia Lanch” (The Guardian)
The trio “BIG SEXY NOISE” (Lydia Lunche, James Johnston and Ian White) will land on the 29th of June at the Gagarin Club in Tel Aviv for a wild, kicking, brave and dirty rock group from New York, London, Punk and counter art. The veteran trio, the roadster and the distortionist, is known for his wonderful ability to challenge the audience, move his ass, release his inhibitions, and give him a break.
Lydia Lunche was born on June 2, 1959, in the name of Lydia Ann Koch, in Rochester, New York, and moved to New York City at the age of 16 where she lived in a joint home for artists and musicians. She is a singer, poet, writer, actress and speaker, and is considered one of the founders of the New York Wave scene. The first band she founded (“Teenage Jesus and the Jerks”) appeared in No New York, produced by Brian Eno.
In the course of her solo career, Lydia Lynch has collaborated with many artists such as: Nick Cave, Sonic Youth, Ainsturzanda Noibutan, Mark Almond, Michael Jira, JJ Tetherwell, , Thurston Moore, Roland Ace Howard, Die Haut, and many more.
In 2009, Lydia Lunche, who over the years became a New York icon of the post-punk / no-wave scene, established the Big Sexy NOISE ensemble on the ruins of the GALLON DRUNK, an English ensemble that began in 1988 in London, James Johnston, guitarist and band leader, performed with NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS in Blula Plaza 1994 and then between 2003-2008 as a regular member of the band. Between the years 2006-2012 Johnson was also a member of the post-rock / psychedelic group evaluated “FAUST”.
On 01/06/09, “LYDIA LUNCH’S BIG SEXY NOISE” released the first EP on the record label. The EP included a cover version of Lou Reed’s song “Kill Your Suns” and also the song “The Gospel Singer” written with Kim Gordon (“SONIC YOUTH”). In 2010, the ensemble added five original segments, plus a cover version for the first six tracks, and released their first complete album.
Their second album “Trust A Witch” came out a year later. The heavy, dirty sound once again caught center stage, and the band “plowed” Europe and spread the punk / blues blues that is so characteristic of it.
In September 2013, the band released the double “colision course”, this time on the label Red Records. The album included a rare recording of a live performance in Italy, as well as their latest album, “Trust A Witch,” which has now become a collection item. The double album featured the band at its peak, extreme, melodic, scandalous, brave and all under an aggressive and uncompromising envelope of rock, post punk and filthy blues from the gutters.
