Description

Parisian poet, painter, actor, and prolific self-taught musician, Lizzy Mercier Descloux was a influential character in the late 1970's New York underground. Mercier Descloux, with partner Michel Esteban (the founder of Ze Records), established the magazine Rock News and ran in the same circles as Patti Smith and Richard Hell. She became a genre defying artist and pioneer of worldbeat and avant garde rock, and supreme minimalist of the 'No Wave' genre in her own right. In 1978, legendary label ZE Records released a mini-album by Mercier Descloux's performance art duo, Rosa Yemen, and went on to release several of Lizzy's solo albums. Her debut solo album, 'Press Color', consisted of eight songs owing more to disco, funk, and film scores than punk rock and was reissued to much acclaim by Light In The Attic Records in 2015. Heavily influenced by African music, art rock, funk and soul, Mercier Descloux's music gained extreme popularity in her native France, although she spent the next two decades living somewhat nomadically in Africa, France, New York, South America and the West Indies, never ceasing her pursuit of the arts as she transitioned from music to painting and writing. Mercier Descloux was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and passed away the following year.
