Posted by DjPaulT on 30th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

In 1986 Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich teamed up to record this protest song for animal rights. These two women deliver a song that is infectiously danceable, yet puts forth a very strong message. The song originally appeared on the compilation album Animal Liberation (1987) and later on Tame Yourself (1991) both to benefit PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

Originally posted February 4, 2011

“Supernature” is title track of French disco drummer, composer, record producer Cerrone’s 1977 album “Supernature (Cerrone III)”. “Supernature” has a sci-fi theme: it’s about the rebellion of mutant creatures — created by scientists to end starvation among mankind — against the humans. It also featured “Sweet Drums”, a three-minute-and-ten-second drum breakdown. The single crossed over to both the pop charts, where it peaked at #70, and the soul charts, where it peaked at #72. The lyrics were written by a young Lene Lovich, though she was not credited.

“Supernature” is one of Cerrone’s best known tracks. It was re-released in 1986 and remixed by David Ford. The song was also covered by Erasure in 1989 as a b-side track for the single “You Surround Me”.

Lene Lovich – Lucky Number (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd May 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Lene Lovich (born 30 March 1949) is an American singer based in England, who first gained attention as part of the New Wave music scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

In 1978, disc jockey and author Charlie Gillett presented her recording of “I Think We’re Alone Now”, a cover version of a song originally performed by Tommy James and the Shondells, to Stiff Records boss, Dave Robinson.

Robinson immediately proposed to release it as a single on Stiff, for which Lovich and Chappell had to write and record a B-side at short notice. They came up with “Lucky Number”, which was eventually released as an A-side in 1979 and became a Top 3 hit in the UK.

“Lucky Number” was taken from her first full length album “Stateless”, recorded by Stiff Records. “Lucky Number” was also covered by Nina Hagen in German, titled Wir leben immer… Noch (“We are living… still”), published on the album Unbehagen also released in 1979.

Special note about this single: This 12″ is the 1988 US reissue and features the “Slavic Dance Version” of “Lucky Number” but it is not indicated as such on the sleeve or label.

Lucky Number (Slavic Dance Version) 4:32
