A Fistful of Desert Blues is the bastard love child of two musical outlaws who were thrown together by mysterious circumstances at
a friend’s funeral.
Lydia Lunch has spent decades trolling through the subterranean sick-home black and blues creating a musical legacy that started
burning down the house in 1977 with Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, and continues today with the raunchy blues of super- group Big
Sexy Noise featuring the formidable talents of bad-ass gunslingers Gallon Drunk. From No Wave teen terror to Muse of the
Cinema of Transgression, whether as hardcore spoken word harbinger or chanteuse provocateur she has relentlessly sought new
collaborators with whom to dissect passion, obsession and desire.
Cypress Grove is a traveling troubadour, notorious for skulking in the back alleys of low down dives and forgotten juke joints
fighting to resuscitate the ghosts of the great Mississippi Blues Masters. Producer and arranger of the 2010 releases WE ARE ONLY
RIDERS and THE JOURNEY IS LONG (Spring of 2012) by The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project which features his
mellifluent guitar on nearly every track of the critically acclaimed releases and showcases Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan, Debbie
Harry, Steve Wynn and Lydia Lunch and a host of other luminaries, paying tribute to the songs of the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce of the
much lauded Los Angeles country punk originators The Gun Club.
It was Lydia’s collaboration with Cypress Grove on Jeffrey Lee’s songs My Cadillac and St Mark’s Place, which formed the
genesis of A Fistful of Desert Blues.
A Fistful of Desert Blues is a bittersweet symphony of black and acoustic love songs. As beautiful and heartbreaking as 12 wayward
orphans who wandered in from the badlands searching for a home away from home, this collection showcases the ever-evolving
gypsy shape shifter and her fellow musical vagabond as sonic caretakers offering comfort to those crushed by a love which bruises.
For Sure One of the Best Albums from Lydia Lunch. Intense.
