It’s what every glamour ghoul wants. Make it outrageous, and make it rawk.
Though known for their work as visual and fashion artists, music came quite naturally to siblings Felix and Sloan Lenz, founders of Lord Friday the 13th. And with that instinctive talent, they use their fabulous flair and fierceness to whip up what they’ve described as “dollar store glam/punk,” or what your Austin Music Minute maven visualizes as early Stooges, New York Dolls and Velvet Underground hot wiring a 1970 Chevy Chevelle, then peeling off to party.
Oh, and the brakes are kind of iffy. On purpose.
Lord Friday’s official releases to date include the saucy sneer “Big Mac” and rabidly ravenous “Sally Wants A Salad” (featured on today’s AMM), and a new LP is on the way next year. Want a taste of what’s to come? Check out Lord Friday the 13th on their full-band livestream performance – a major shift from the dynamic duo livestreams la familia Lenz presented during previous pandemic months – on Bud’s Live and Direct. They’re joined by Benjamin Violet (Pelvis Wrestley) working the bass, while Andy Nixon takes over the drums.
