Book: LYDIA LUNCH: THE WAR IS NEVER OVER:
A Companion To The Film By Beth B
Author: Nick Soulsby

Info: “Before #MeToo, before Riot Grrl, there was Lydia Lunch. A central figure in
the No Wave scene of the seventies—as founder of the seminal Teenage Jesus & The
Jerks—Lunch has pursued a four-decade-long career turning the substance of her
life into unapologetic, stark, and beautiful art.
From the eighties onward, Lunch became a lone voice publicly calling out the patriarchal aggression and day-to-day violence enacted by the powerful—and never gave a good goddamn whether you wanted to hear it or not. Refusing to be silenced, she took to stages the world over, fearlessly speaking the truth, whether of her own life with its legacy of parental abuse, her wild times owning the streets of New York City, or the world she saw around her.
Across these pages, Lunch and her numerous collaborators—including Thurston Moore, Jim Sclavunos, Kid Congo Powers, Bob Bert, Richard Kern, Nick Zedd, and Vivienne Dick—recount
life at the front line of the musical extremes of the seventies and eighties underground, the wild times, the disciplined productivity, life lived as a defender of the voiceless, and an unapologetic force of righteous fury.”
Here the awesome trailer of the docu-movie
made by renowned NY filmmaker Beth B…
