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.

Which song do you listen to when...

The Stooges - 1969

I never feel like 1980! So I listen to «1969» by The Stooges.

you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?

Which I do at least once a week... So I’m listening to the entire contents of my computer.
