the two-bit two-piece of lucy lurex (aka dianne smith) and duane zarakov (aka pat faigen), garage-rockers extraordinaire. with lucy’s impressive and powerful singing, heavily influenced by idol marc bolan (and lets not forget her bryan adams fandom), the international telepaths are as raunch as it gets.
add in to the mix duane’s (king loser, spacedust et al) dexterous and off-kilter drumming and you’ve got a whole lot of cool in just a 2-piece. 2003 saw the pair play a number of gigs in their home-town of dunedin, and eventually released their self-titled debut on lucy’s own lurex rekkids label.
