ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leckie and Haden-Guest had their first encounter at Rockwood Music Hall where Leckie was performing songs from her first solo EP Martini Eyes (2010), proclaimed the ‘Best Album of the Year” by Tom Semioli of The Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop 2010 list. Haden-Guest, known for his contributions to Esquire, GQ and Britain’s Observer Magazine, and books such as The Last Party: Studio 54, offered his latest collection of cartoons and poems, In The Mean Time, as the inspiration for Rudely Interrupted. “I had been looking for someone to work with on a music venture for years and immediately fell in love with Lorraine’s raw, sophisticated presence that night,” says Haden-Guest. Though Leckie’s signature gothic glam, tough-as-nails style remains unscathed, Rudely Interrupted, produced by George Jackson, is a powerful departure from the sparse, intimate Martini Eyes. Haden-Guest’s lyrics have the satirical bite to match Leckie’s unmistakable bark and enigmatic, frequently plaintive melodies. “Rudely Interrupted” sets the tone of the gleefully noir album with a catchy sway and apocalyptic theme. The songs tell the bitter, but heartfelt tales of being recognized and then becoming unrecognizable. “Bliss” is a triumphantly sarcastic, coldly perceptive vignette of a couple who has lost their spark, while“Little Miss X” is a snarky, offhand dig at an ingénue from out of town, suddenly in the midst of her fifteen minutes and wearing Alexander McQueen. “Watching guitarist Hugh Pool play eerie washes of sound over Matt Kanelos’ glimmering Debussy-on-opium piano while Leckie delivered Haden-Guest’s sardonic, creepy narratives with a gentle menace was a treat,” said Alan Young of New York Music Daily after an album preview for a packed house at the Gershwin Hotel, “this is her first collaboration, and her first venture into chamber pop, and judging from how she and her usually high-voltage band the Demons played it, it’s a smash success.”
