For music fans of a certain age and sensibility, Lords of Acid were the entry point to the world of electronic music. The group’s 1991 album Lust --which was recently remastered and released on limited-edition vinyl -- pushed the nascent techno scene in bigger, raunchier directions and their follow-up, Voodoo-U, doubled-down on the sexually explicit themes while moving in a more industrial direction.
After taking a lengthy break, the group returned in 2012 with Deep Chills and in support of their new Kickstarter-funded album Pretty In Kink, Lords of Acid have announced a handful of tour dates, including an Oct. 3 show at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, CO. Early Bird tickets for the show go on sale at 10am this Friday, May 26 and cost just $24. Get yours right here on AXS.com.
From early singles like “I Sit on Acid” and “I Must Increase My Bust” to more recent works like “Pop That Tooshie,” Lords of Acid have been impressively single-minded in their focus on sex and sexuality. Yet the sound of their music was truly revolutionary, with the group’s chief producer Praga Khan often credited as pioneering the Belgian acid house movement and bringing edgy, pulsating electronic music to the masses (to say nothing of his work on the iconic Mortal Kombat soundtrack).
