The no wave icon’s 1990 album is headed to wax.
The spoken word album was recorded in Berlin in 1990 and overseen by her regular collaborator J. G. Thirlwell, the prolific industrial artist better known as Foetus, among other aliases.
The four-track reissue includes a new remix of ‘Why Was I Born An American’ by Chicago no wave figure Weasel Walter and Jaar himself, and it’s out on May 4. Check the artwork and tracklist below a video of Lunch performing the work in 1989.
Lunch’s 1991 album with Roland S. Howard, Shotgun Wedding, got a deserved vinyl reissue last year too.
