You are commanded to worship at the feet of the Lords of Acid. For the first
time in many years, the Lords are finally touring and doing live shows. RAD
got the opportunity to talk with the Shai de la Luna and Lady Galore.
Unfortunately, the tape was mysteriously erased, and we are not sure how -
a probable storyline for the next X Files. But I'll do my best to sum up the
highlights of talking to both of them.
Shai is the keyboardist and male vocalist for the group. He's Belgian as is
the rest of the group except for Lady Galore (she's British). He says that
every venue they've played in the US has enthusiastically welcomed them with
open arms. He's amazed by the response at all of their shows. We asked him
why they haven't played live before and he said that the original Lords band
were more studio musicians and they hated to tour. Then the new set of
musicians came in about '91 and they perform live as well as record. Their
latest release, VOODO-U, adeir
latest release, VOODO-U, addresses topics like sex and drugs. Shai feels that
doing drugs is okay as long as you do it in moderation and not like their
song, "Blowing up your Mind," depicts.
Lady Galore walked into the room, and she spoke easily to us. She is
incredibly funny and warm. She got her name because at one time she was in
a really bad British band called Pussy Galore (not the famous one) and they
all dressed like Bond Girls. She said it was quite the lark. We asked her
what her turn-ons are: a romantic man (especially if he dresses in a tux),
a bag of crips, and a tramp (meaning trampoline). In her free time, she likes
to jump on a tramp to the music of the Prodigy. She has also been amazed by
the reception they have received in the States. But she is disappointed that
no men have thrown their underwear on stage. She prefers Calvins, so if you
would like her to bestow a favored glance upon you, then get yours on
stage!!! When asked about the album, she says that they deal with subjects
that most people find offensive, like sex and drugs. She even had some
minister dude call her and ask her why she likes to sing such offensive
material, and she easily put him in his place.
Shai and Lady Galore were very accommodating in talking to us, and I only
wish that you could have heard every minute. But the LORDS may be coming to
a town near you. They mentioned that they might tour the States again in the
summer. If they the
summer. If they come, GO!!!!! Their show is outrageous, entertaining, and
wild. People have fun while worshipping with the LORDS.
The Lords are touring with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult later this
