    So, the very first thing you need to know is that almost all of these essays were originally published elsewhere. This means if you're a huge fan of Lydia Lunch, you may have read almost all of these before. Now, I picked this up knowing almost nothing about Lydia Lunch. I started r...

    This collection of short pieces has some real standouts, but is also a bit unfocused due to the breadth: from poetic stream-of-consciousness rants to an interview with Hubert Selby Jr (a highlight), autobiographical tidbits to a short bio of Herbert Huncke, an appropriately brief blast...

    Lydia?s writing is a drug to me. If I go very long not reading her, I get the shakes, I snap at people and I have flashbacks of meek and timid me back when I let the machine work me instead of the other way around. I inhale her fearlessness deep into my lungs and I remember what I lo...

    Lydia Lunch, the musician, poet and pioneer of the No Wave music genre (that rejected commercial New Wave music) was hailed by the New York Times as "the angriest punk of '70s New York." So Real It Hurts proves that more than 40 years into her career, she's lost none of her blistering ...
