Exene To Release New LP in Oct.

 

Ain’t nothing gonna
slow her down…

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Despite being diagnosed recently with MS, X frontwoman Exene
Cervenka doesn’t have any plans to slow down – she’s got a new solo album due
October 6 from Bloodshot. Titled Somewhere
Gone
it’s described by the label as “all the passion of X without all the
loud – a great combination, even for people who embrace the loud.” See the
artwork, above.

 

Exene, of course, has been multitasking for years – in addition
to her work with X, she’s performed with the Knitters, fronted her own band the
Original Sinners, done spoken word (her appearances with Lydia Lunch back in
the ‘80s remain the stuff of legend), penned several volumes of poetry and even
had her drawings, paintings and collages exhibited a few years ago at the Santa
Monica Museum of Art.

 

And she’s announced her intentions to work with the Sweet
Relief foundation to help raise money and awareness for MS – all we can say is,
keep it coming, Exene, and we’re looking forward to the new rec.
