Lydia Lunch + Marc Hurtado Play The Music of Suicide
Since 2014, Lydia Lunch and Marc Hurtado have joined forces in sonic blitzkrieg and shamanic ceremony to celebrate the music of Suicide and Alan Vega.
Lydia Lunch first crossed paths with Alan Vega and Martin Rev of Suicide upon arrival in New York aged just 16. The first show she attended was a revelation – a total show, theatrical, free, and violent. Since then, a close relationship, as much artistic as it was friendly, united them.
After the release of Marc Hurtado’s Etant Donnés collaborative album ‘RE-UP’, featuring Alan Vega, he formed the project My Lover The Killer in 2013 with Lydia Lunch, with whom they recorded an album and play on stage.
Now, the duo unite once again to burn their souls in the volcanic heart of the music of Alan Vega, Martin Rev, and Suicide.
