Lydia Lunch

is a living contradiction. She polarises – whether she’s recording music (as a solo artist or with people like Nick Cave, Einstürzende Neubauten and Thurston Moore), writing explicit books or plays, performing as spoken word artist or acting in undergroud movies. The fifty-something ex-pin-up is still New York’s most passionate activist.
