Lene Lovich

One of the more offbeat and memorable figures in new wave, Lene Lovich certainly drew much of her widely varied approach from her unconventional early experiences. Born of a Yugoslavian father and British mother, she spent much of her childhood in Detroit, MI. At age 13, she moved to Hull, England, with her mother. She ran away to London shortly thereafter, where she worked several odd jobs ranging from bingo caller to go-go dancer to street busker. Around this time, she developed an interest in art and theater, enrolling at the Central School of Art. She took up the saxophone and, after a brief stint in a soul-funk band (with future collaborator Les Chappell), Lovich wrote a string of songs for French disco star Cerrone. In 1978, Stiff Records signed her after hearing her first recording, a remake of "I Think We're Alone Now." She quickly became one of Stiff's brightest stars, headlining package tours and earning several U.K. hits over the next three years with the unforgettable "Lucky Number," "Say When," "Bird Song," and "New Toy." Unfortunately, her theatrical quirkiness didn't translate well into LP length, and as new wave dissolved, she disappeared from the music scene. After an eight-year absence, she returned in 1990 with March. It failed to ignite any further interest and she again went into retirement. ~ Chris Woodstra

long before Gwen Stefani.... Lene Lovich! Most definately my favorite female artist of all time.
I saw her perform in a small club in mid-town Manhattan... I've never been the same since.

I saw Lene at the Ritz in one of her earlier 80's appearances. I was amazed. She was wearing a tutu and army boots. She shredded. I heard "Home" for the first time that night. A shame that New Wave is glopped together and the Lene's and XTC's and Our Daughter's Wedding's and Tones on Tails' and 801 Live's and Gary Numan's and Ultavoxes' of the world are largely forgotten.

oh yes, yes indeed!

Gone by certainly not forgotten. She was a staple of my music diet in the 80's. Love her!

She also did the very hard-to-find song "Breakin' the Rules (What Do You Do When Opposites Attract)." It's similar in quirkiness to "Lucky Number." It appeared on the sound track for a movie called Tuff Turf, which came out at around the same time as "Pretty in Pink." I haven't heard the song for more than twenty years, but I still remember it.

Here's a link to the movie's soundtrack listing:
