Harry Crews: Mean Fiddler, London

Barbara Ellen, New Musical Express, 1 October 1988

TONIGHT — If past reports of her live shows are to be believed — Lydia Lunch is not quite herself. Nor is she alone. Harry Crews is in all-girl band fronted by Lydia, but featuring a Sonic Youth — chiselled and smouldering throughout — and an all-in wrestler. The theme is literary; the band being named after an American underground writer with the songs reflecting his work.
