Nymphs: The Asylum Siren

Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 15 February 1992

When singer Inger Lorre first heard Patti Smith, she knew she had to become a rock'n'roll star. When she heard the Velvet's 'Heroin'. She got hooked on smack. When Geffen records refused to let NYMPHS finish their debut album, she hitched up her skirt and pissed on the the Head of A&R's desk. Weird stuff indeed. SIMON REYNOLDS takes a tour of LA's wild side.
