ANNE-MARIE HURST THE LAST CRY DISTORTED PICTURES
Anne-Marie Hurst is the lead vocalist from legendary 80s goth bands The Elements, Skeletal Family and Ghost Dance. She was the lead vocalist of The Elements until 1982, when she helped form Skeletal Family, then later co-founded Ghost Dance with Gary Marx (formerly of The Sisters of Mercy) in 1985.
Backed with a four piece guitar band (including former Skeletal Family bassist Roger "Trotwood" Nowell), Anne-Marie has returned to performing live, playing songs from both Ghost Dance & Skeletal Family alongside new original material from her excellent solo album "Day Of All Days".
The Last Cry (as they are now) formed 4 years ago, taking their cues from bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode, fashioning a dark atmospheric and dramatic wall of sound which exhibits a coherency, intensity and emotional depth. Their live shows are the stuff of legend and it's a pleasure to welcome them back to Leeds.
Distorted Pictures is the new project formed by Natasha Donald (Legion) and Rob Walker (Rhombus) to further explore the more melodic nature of their combined playing styles. Having been described as "jangly swirling guitars driven on by powerful drums and pounding bass", they have drawn favourable comparisons to The Chameleons.
