Lene Lovich’s
Home At
The Stereo Society

Lili-Marlene Premilovich used to record screams for Hammer to dub onto their horror-films and wrote the lyrics to the disco hit Supernature for Cerrone in the late 70’s. Then she abbreviated her name and set about becoming a recording artiste herself.

Lene’s impact on pop music can hardly be overstated. The influence of her arty, flamboyant new wave persona, assertive, banshee-howl-inflected vocals, and idiosyncratic songwriting style can be seen clearly in countless female artists, from peers like Siouxsie Sioux and Grace Jones, to those who have followed in her footsteps: Björk, PJ Harvey, Gwen Stefani, and Karen O. In her absence, it would be hard to conceive of the modern landscape of alternative female pop artists. Lene has carved out a unique niche in the world, always while doggedly pursuing her own muse, her own passions. 

‘Somewhere there is a parallel universe where Lene Lovich is a mega-star. An Icon. A thrilling, trilling, theatrical chanteuse and critically acclaimed artiste. ‘ Read the rest of the review.

Writing Notes
An Introduction
I couldn’t possibly list my favorite novels or authors.  I certainly couldn’t list them in any order of merit  Sometimes it’s the story, and sometimes it’s the way it’s told, that makes the book special.  Novels can be brilliant.
