Biography

Lach is a musician associated with the Anti-folk movement.

As a songwriter Lach founded the Antifolk art and music movement, which is sited as a main inspiration by hundreds of performers today from Beck and Jeffrey Lewis to Hamell on Trial, The Moldy Peaches and Regina Spektor in the US to the likes of Laura Marling in the UK. Lach has six albums out, a new book of poetry to be published in January 2015 and a regular series on BBC Radio 4 called ‘The Lach Chronicles’ which is currently on its second season.

Lach came to Greenwich Village (New York City) in the early 80’s, heading straight for Folk City. However it seemed Lach’s renowned punk/folk style was not welcome and so he moved to the Lower East Side, opening his own illegal after-hours club, The Fort. The same week Lach opened The Fort, Folk City held the New York Folk Festival, and so, Lach held the first New York Antifolk Festival. The first wave of Antifolk was born.

In 1990 Lach put out his debut CD, Contender on Danny Goldberg's (who was managing Nirvana at the time) Goldcastle label. The album received rave reviews in the press ("Lach is the spokesman for a new generation!” - Spin) and considerable radio play but unfortunately the label folded three months later. Lach moved to San Francisco releasing an EP, Family Values Pack, containing The Hillary Clinton Song which aired on over 600 stations during Bill Clinton's first campaign.
