Following the critical acclaim for her solo single ‘Shopping & F’ in 2014, Lisa Ronson, daughter of Bowie’s legendary guitarist Mick Ronson, is to release her debut solo album ‘Emperors of Medieval Japan’, on Maniac Squat Records 6th November 2015.
‘Emperors of Medieval Japan’ features special guest appearances from an inspirational line up of prestigious rock musicians; Reeves Gabrels (The Cure, David Bowie), Earl Slick (John Lennon and Yoko Ono, David Bowie) and Morgan Fisher (Mott The Hoople, Queen) joining guitarist programmer Paul Cuddeford (Ian Hunter, Bob Geldof) and saxophone player Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Gallon Drunk, Yoko Ono). Ronson’s rare sound is a dynamic convergence of synth pop and alternative rock with dystopian and existentialist lyrics. Pioneered by Ronson, this contemporary musical style is referred to by her fans as ‘Post Synthetic’, an emerging musical movement in London.
As well as the album release, Lisa will also be on tour in the UK in October:
