Marty Duda with the music of Lizzy Mercier Descloux

From Nine To Noon, 11:09 am on 6 April 2016

French-born Lizzy Mercier Descloux is a musical chameleon. She travelled to New York City in the late 1970s and quickly immersed herself in the punk/no wave scene, befriending Patti Smith and Richard Hell and cutting her first album at Bob Blank's studio. Press Color was largely ignored at the time of its release but is now admired as one of the most interesting of the No Wave releases to come from Ze Records. Lizzy passed away in 2004 but her legacy has grown since then, resulting in her music recently being reissued by Light In The Attic Records.
