Lost Somewhere As I leave I leave my heart Lost somewhere On the horizon I tried to reach I tried to reason I felt the light But darkness fell Throw my heart Out to sea Red tears Scorching me Threw my heart Out to sea Red tears In their intensity Lyric Anni Hogan

My Career Some record covers and a myth was all I ever wanted for my career To wear a wig and glasses, a disguise was all I wanted for my career A laugh. A laugh. A laugh is all I ever wanted from my career The outcast, the stoners, the weirdos and the the shy For my career To make a cake out of disaster is all I ever wanted from my career All this mystery. Mystery. It seems so stupid in my career But you know people will love you, they’ll love you , love you for ever in my career Yes people will love you, love you for ever in my career The outcast, the stoners, the weirdos and the the shy In my career The outcast, the stoners, the weirdos and the the shy In my career Some record covers and a myth was all I ever wanted for my career To wear a wig and glasses, a disguise was all I wanted for my career The outcast, the stoners, the weirdos and the the shy In my career (spoken word fever dream….) The outcast, the stoners, the weirdos and the the shy In my career Lyric Kid Congo Powers (TristanTunes (ASCAP)

Death Bed Diva Well I heard they dropped the curtain in the midst of your applause And by the time they turned the house lights on they were heading for the doors Your name’s on every billboard and in every magazine Your shadow’s a reminder of the places where you’ve been Walk - Walk On! Keep your eyes on the prize and your ear to the ground. So far away, far from today I looked up, I looked everywhere, I looked round And it was gone Well you know all that there is to know, and so much more besides You know the phases of the moon and the patterns of the tides You lost your love to chloroform and the waving of a hand You see the ground beneath your feet but you just don’t know where you stand Walk - Walk On! Keep your eyes on the prize and your ear to the ground. So far away, far from today I looked up, I looked everywhere, I looked round And it was gone Holding back the rush of blood that lurks beneath my skin Terrible, tyrannical it stalks me from within I should have seen it coming, I could have smelt its breath But I was too preoccupied with planning my own death Walk - Walk On! Keep your eyes on the prize and your ear to the ground. So far away, far from today I looked up, I looked everywhere, I looked round And it was gone Lyric Richard Strange

Silk Paper Whispering lips - a woman in black pious glances at my pious prayer book rustling silk skirt, very nearby made tingling showers, suppressing my cry Slender brown fingers leafed through her book page by page, one hour it took in cool and calm darkness, in huge holy hall concealed my excitement, giving me all SILK PAPER - MEMORIES OF LUST RELEASING ALL - TENDERNESS AND TRUST SILK PAPER - EDGES FROM GOLD LOVE FEELINGS - NEVER BEEN TOLD Crackling thin paper, short skirt from silk a seductive smile from a face like milk I loved the feeling of living in sin I just couldn't stand it - my tingling skin Lyric W. Flür August 1998

Ghosts of Soho: Concrete facades Bricks crumbling As the edgy hoover sucks up history Sucks up life Soho Square Will soon be bare As London is raped of its identity Taking the character The atmosphere The nostalgia The London we all love The French House flags flutter in the wind The ghosts of Bacon, Farson and Bernard Sip on their phantom drinks And take tokes from their phantom cigarettes Swirls of smoke, drifting up into the air Spiralling and creating its own music Dean street in mean street Not such a clean street Brothels are still there While women show everything bare You might even get a refund if your lucky The ghost of Charles Dickens Sings at The music hall on Dean Street And the rain is like mirrors on the street Reflecting all of the sky The ghosts of Soho The ghosts of Soho Lyric Celine Hispiche

Blue Contempt: Over and over I’ve begged you to just go away Please go away Just leave me today Over and over I wish that you’d just go away Just leave me today Please leave me today Nothing is changed it just all feels exactly the same We're back at it again The same old thing Over over over again The ritual begins The ritual begins I’m stuck in this awful place where you just can’t win Oh please not again Please not again Over over over again The ritual begins The ritual begins Over over over again The ritual begins The ritual begins Lyric Lydia Lunch (Widowspeak/ASCAP)

Thunderstruck Thunderstruck this afternoon When all the flowers cried in June And all the trees arrested breeze And all the ships are lost at sea The birds have flown to heights unknown The animals have all run away Lightning bolts have taken you There’s nothing more to say I cried a river I cried an ocean I cried all the seas and all the storms Remembering you in June Thunderstruck this afternoon When all the petals fell in June And all the trees had lost their leaves The ships are lost at sea The birds have flown to heights unknown The animals have all gone away Lightning bolts have stolen you There’s nothing more to say I cried a river I cried an ocean I cried all the seas and all the storms Remembering you Remembering you I remember you I remember you (whisper) Lyric Anni Hogan

Making Blackpool Rock In this squalor I thrive Chewing out my next line I fall and leave Like a fine dust From this aged book I seem to learn Yet to begin upon this page I read upon a death wish With a can on the go I scare myself While a yellow man Sits beside me Well he sits beside me I broke into someone’s house today Just so I could sleep Half return to sanity I’m too exhausted To hope for a home for myself I’m too exhausted To hope for or cling to Too much I’m too exhausted To hope for cling For myself I’m too exhausted Where are my ill conceived friends? I’m too exhausted I’m drinking a pint of lager The glass reads 2 In the thick print 2 units that is That’s the fun of being here My desire deserves to be conquered Then I truly move on Most people in Blackpool Look truly deserted The bitter eyes And the weathered face Perhaps it’s just the North Sea Oh no it’s the Irish Sea.. I’m in the pub opposite The Merrie England Bar On the North Pier It promises Making Blackpool Rock Lyric Scarlet West

Golden Light (on Hastings) On late afternoon they arrived at a village called Hastings. They hadn’t noticed the spot on the map, so much they were damaged with their route that they didn’t take it into consideration for an overnight stay. In that moment when they drove into the village it was covered by a golden light. They raptly parked their car and stepped out. It meant something to them, that the sky suddenly ripped open here and sent them an enchanting shade over the ocean – nearly divine! Totally carried away by the late atmosphere, they locked the car and undertook a walk on the “Carlisle Parade“. No one else was out. They stood near the handrail which separated the beach from the street and embraced each other. IT WAS LOVE ! Lyric W. Flür

Angels of Romance ​Is the where the story begins like it's make believe and it never ends? Born to live live to love​ love kills everything like it's born to die ​Take a chance throw it all away every wound every scar every dog has it's day​ ​every moment of chance has its fear …And a loving kiss makes it clear When in love we’re not Alone It feels like we’re going home and when the high goes low sometimes it's chemical still you waltz with me we stole this swollen dance we kissed and killed romance like some endless soap on tv I don't wanna hear how your world is all Rock n Sway I don't wanna hear you say I told you so I just wanna find someone who can salvate my soul ​Please let it go let it go The day is dark The chips are down always hurt the one we love there's no tomorrow, just here today Is this where the story ends cuz everything here has fallen down I don't wanna go I don't wanna leave Some Divine intervention is what I need Throw me a line baby one more time Let the Angels sing for you and me I call on the Angels of Romance Says Angel Michael I will protect and strong your loving hearts Says Angel Jophiel I will beautify you inside and out Says Angel Chamuel I will guide you and keep you safe from rage Says Angel Raphael I will heal the wounds and keep your hearts open Says Angel Raguel I will instill peace and harmony We're walking down the street in the dark of the day It feels like we're going home We're walking down the street hand in hand It feels like we're going home It feels like we're going home it feels like we're going home Walk down the street in the dark of the day It feels like we're going home Lyric Gavin Friday

about

**LTD BLUE VINYL HAS SOLD OUT!**

'Lost In Blue' is the brand new album from ANNI HOGAN (Marc & The Mambas, The Willing Sinners, La Magia). An astounding, attentive work on an emotive shared journey. Songs in despair searching for hope, moments of monumental horror, and outpouring screams of consciousness. A poignant, bleak album for these times.

'Blue Contempt' video premiere: louderthanwar.com/video-premiere-anni-hogan-featuring-lydia-lunch-blue-contempt

'Thunderstruck' video premiere: thequietus.com/articles/25882-anni-hogan-interview

'Lost In Blue' has elements of orchestral delight, dark cabaret, and modern vaudeville, with Anni's trademark torch songs evoking the dimly-lit corners of bohemian Soho and reigniting the sordid torment of those illustrious Marc & The Mambas days.

All this is wrapped in the magical vocals of: LYDIA LUNCH, WOLFGANG FLÜR (ex-Kraftwerk), GAVIN FRIDAY (ex-Virgin Prunes), KID CONGO POWERS (The Gun Club, ex-Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, ex-The Cramps), RICHARD STRANGE (Doctors Of Madness), and many more.

Produced by DAVE BALL (Soft Cell) and RICCARDO MULHALL, the brilliant guests' lyrical content responds perfectly to the music, resonating with and cohabiting the sonics created.

File next to: Marc & The Mambas, Jacques Brel, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Reviews:

"...a bleak but poignant document for our troubled times, its eerie torch songs, performed by a rotating cast of guests, sharing an emotional journey in search of hope in a hopeless world... a lament for the pre-gentrification Soho of clip joints and peep shows, where Francis Bacon and Jeffrey Bernard rub shoulders in subterranean drinking clubs once haunted by Dickens" (Louder Than War).

"This is a hard record to ignore... Think 'Twin Peaks', think backstreet club, bit of jazz, lots of velvet. It's properly out-there, while at the same time sounding almighty... it's such a rich, warm record... the best dark cabaret night out ever." (Electronic Sound)
