To coincide with the announcement of her forthcoming album on Cold Spring Records, the multi – talented Anni Hogan (key Marc Almond collaborator, Marc & The Mambas, The Willing Sinners, La Magia) has shared a new track.
‘Blue Contempt’, produced by Dave Ball (Soft Cell) and Ricardo Mulhall, features vocals from Lydia Lunch and is accompanied by a stunning video directed by Jasmine Hirst.
The song is the first taste of what to expect from Hogan’s new solo album ‘Lost In Blue’ which is set to arrive in March 2019 and features guest appearances from the likes of Wolfgang Flür (ex Kraftwerk), Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes), Kid Congo (Gun Club, Cramps, Bad Seeds), Richard Strange (Doctors of Madness) and the aforementioned New York No wave icon Lydia Lunch.
An astounding and attentive piece of work, ‘Lost In Blue’ has elements of orchestral delight, dark cabaret and beautifully crafted modern vaudeville. Anni’s trademark torch songs evoke the darkest corners of London’s Soho and recall the sordid torment of her earlier and celebrated Marc & The Mambas days. A poignant and bleak collection of songs for these troubled times.
