Lost Girls Lost Girls on Limited Edition Import LP + Download w/ Bonus Tracks
In 1997, Patrick Fitzgerald had left Kitchens of Distinction, his band of ten years, and Heidi Berry had left 4AD for whom she had recorded three albums following the invitation to sing on the This Mortal Coil album Blood. After a speculative phone call, they got together in 1998 to work out their frustrations and re-imagined what they could do going forward.
And over the next few months songs came together. They played some live shows, including supporting John Martyn, and the duo of Lost Girls became a five piece group with the addition of Ashley Wood on guitar, drummer Dave Morgan (The Loft, Primal Scream, Rockingbirds) and bassist Kim Smith. They reworked the songs as a group and put them out to tender and waited.
A single, "Needle's Eye," was self-released in 1999 but otherwise the recordings sat gathering dust...until now. Dusted off and brightened up, the long-lost Lost Girls album is finally being released as a limited edition heavyweight LP with MP3 download code, which gives access to the album plus ten bonus tracks.
