Teenage Jesus & The Jerks

Teenage JesusOnce upon a time (76-79) in New Yok City there was Lydia Lunch. With her co-conspirators she stripped music down to its bare essentials: a beat, thrashed guitar, and a wailing vocal. The complete recordings add up to around eighteen minutes of music but the shock waves arried on for much longer.

They made Punk sound over-orchestrated and overblown. The way her voice cracks on the word “mediocrity” is still one of the finest moments in Rock music. If you take more than 82 seconds to make your point, you are just wasting everyone’s time.
