Shut Up And Bleed
Released: Aug 2008
Shut Up And Bleed compiles tracks from two of Lydia Lunch's earliest projects: No Wave icons Teenage Jesus And The Jerks and their lesser known predecessors Beirut Slump. The former's brutish simplicity is still astonishing. Guitar, bass and drums cough up nails and glass. Lydia Lunch, wailing, rips back the veil on the hideousness lurking inside her. Beirut Slump are equally sinister, if more atmospheric. You'd think such an anti-everything sound would've crawled into a sarcophagus encased in obscurity, yet it wound up inspiring waves of young musicians who went on to invent noise rock.
