More Info

"My Lover The Killer is the latest collaboration between Lydia Lunch and Marc
Hurtado. They first worked together on the Sexodrone track of the Etant Donns's album Re-Up in 1999. Featuring Terry Edwards (Gallon Drunk), Ian White (Gallon Drunk), Mark Cunningham, We Are Birds of Paradise, David
Lackner. My Lover The Killer is a collaborative project with Marc Hurtado.
What began as a loose musical concept in the summer of 2012 became a prophecy written in blood by November of the same year. My Lover The Killer is a late night noir confessional. Sinister, sexy and mysterious, the music slithers, erupts and caresses the seductive vocals as they relay twisted tales rife with innuendo, promises and threats. The text is based on the murder/suicide of an ex-lover
whom I had recently contacted for the first time in over a decade. Caught in the
early fall hurricane which leveled the East Coast of America while enroute to Los
Angeles, I had sent an invitation proposing that we meet for drinks. Two days later, during a alcohol fueled fight with his girlfriend about whether or not he should come to see me, he shot and killed her, called the police, turned the gun on himself, and died the next day on his 55th birthday. A tragic event, which My Lover The Killer attempts to make sense of. Each song is a rumination on the frightening effects of a mad love spun out of control and the haunting remnants of a lover who still stalks from beyond the grave."
