Teenage Jesus & The Jerks
Bring your hammers down tonight as LYDIA LUNCH resurrects TEENAGE JESUS AND THE JERKS to drive the last nails into its No Wave corpse. Arguably one of the most influential, and confrontational, post-punk groups of their time TEENAGE JESUS AND THE JERKS first shrieked into the national limelight in 1978 with the release of the seminal BRIAN ENO produced No New York alongside likeminded luminaries DNA, MARS and THE CONTORTIONS. Leaving behind barely thirty minutes of recorded material, LUNCH and her JERKS have become legendary cult figures re-animating only once prior to dismember and desecrate rock for last year’s All Tomorrows Parties and a pair of dates in New York. This is your last, and only, chance to catch LUNCH in Chicago alongside fellow JERK JIM SCLAVUNOS on drums and ALGIS KIZYS, of SWANS fame, on bass. I pity the fool who misses this.
