Lene Lovich: Slav Siren To Play Mata Hari

Cynthia Rose, Creem, March 1983

MARLENE PREMILOVICH – professionally, Lene Lovich – has been out of the musical limelight for awhile, since the January 1980 release of Flex and a subsequent tour of Ireland, America and Europe (including her ancestral Yugoslavia). She did only two live turns this summer: both on the stage of London's Venue, helping a visiting Tom Verlaine with sax and co-vocals on ‘Postcard From Waterloo’.
