Inger Lorre (Nymphs) Live Album – Viper Room
Infamous Nymphs front woman Inger Lorre celebrates how vital her songs still sound today, with a live recording album ‘Live at the Viper Room‘ of a sold-out at the legendary Viper Room, due out on August 4th, 2017 via Sweet Nothing / Cargo Records as CD and 2 LP set (coloured vinyl). The set includes classic Nymphs tracks, ‘Sad & Damned’, ode to a serial killer ‘The Highway’ and the mourning swirl of ‘Imitating Angels’, with the addition of a cover of a Siouxsie’s ‘Monitor’. This ‘official bootleg’ is as raw and primal; tribal, glamorous, witch-y, grunge-y, punk. Inger states, “These songs are the sound of me walking through fire…”

Lorre’s cult following has grown in strength of late, with the seminal self-titled debut album re-issued by Rock Candy Records and 2 new songs released for Record Store Day. Encouraged by the interest she is recording a new album, tentatively planned for an autumn release.
Often seen as musician’s musician (once dubbed by Jeff Buckley as ‘The Patron Saint of Fucked-Over Musicians’) and having worked with the likes of Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins, sadly Inger’s notoriety often eclipsed her darkly beautiful music.
Haunted by the infamy of a band that burned brightly all too briefly, before imploding in a devastation of bereavement, addiction, and mental health issues and misguided record company dealings. No one will ever forget the desk pissing incident. Inger Lorre is a music industry legend.
These days Inger Lorre has mostly conquered her own demons – exorcised through art, music and time to heal. What comes next will no doubt be unique as the women herself.
