"Pete Lynch hat nichts zu lachen"

Pete Lynch hat nichts zu lachen
Im "Dynamite" in Bärlas lässt der Rocksänger die Sau raus. Ein Chorknabe ist er nicht, auch wenn er einst an der Wiener Oper in die Lhre ging.

Sein Tourneeplan sieht Auftritte in Pilsen, Berlin, Hamburg und Wien vor. Und eben auch in Bärlas bei Weißdorf, wo der amerikanische Progressiv-Rocksänger Pete Lynch am Wochenende Station gemacht hat. Ab ging die Post dabei im "Dynamite". Wenn auf seiner Website zu lesen ist, dass seine Musik einen von den höchsten Höhen zu den tiefsten Tiefen seiner eigenen Seelenlagen reißt, dann konnten das die Zuhörer nachvollziehen.

Dass das kein leiser, melodiöser Musikabend werden würde, zeigte sich schon beim Intro. Der Bass von Bandmitglied Joe Gridl und die Drums von Catherina Priemer heitzten ganz schön ein, als Lynch nach einer "battery in my life" suchte. Die Club-Atmosphäre kam schnell auf, als erschon die ersten Töne mit seiner verrauchten Stimme anschlug. Dabei merkte man dem Zwei-Meter-Hühnen mit dem glattrasierten Kopf durchaus an, dass er einst bei einem ehemaligen Sänger der Wiener Staatsoper Unterricht genossen hatte. - Frankenpost, Matthias Trendel

NM Bands Pick of the Week 08/08/06: "Ain't My Place" by Lynch
Category: Music

New Mexico Bands' Pick of the Week for August 8th, 2011

Artist: Lynch Song: "Ain't My Place" Genre: New-Wave High-Desert Goth-Pop

New Wave Goth-Pop in *Taos*?

A listen to the tracks over on Lynch's profile reveal a singer-songwriter who's probably spent a lot of time listening to the same music we did, once upon a time - think INXS, Echo & the Bunnymen, Peter Murphy (but not Bau Haus), The Church, etc. According to his bio, Lynch actually has something of a Brit-Pop pedigree, (and we quote) "At sixteen he moved to Europe, where he played in subways, at parties, clubs and festivals, and supported bands such as the Go-Betweens, the Godfathers, Nina Hagen and Concrete Blonde. LYNCH's most recent collaboration was with Simon Hinkler, producer and former guitarist for The Mission/UK (John Paul Jones, Tim Palmer)" which would certainly explain why his music takes on the some of the more interesting musical dialectics of the 1980s. Anyway, we've listened to all of his tracks on his new demo/EP, and we just like "ain't my place" the very best. It reminds us of early Genesis - back in the good old days, you know, when Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins were weird junkies and had great ideas about popular music. Rock on, Lynch! - NM Bands

"This is soooo good. This dude is a solo artist and he just blew my mind." - The Music Page Promotions, Sandman

 Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA on March 31st, PETE LYNCH shares his birth date with Joseph Haydn, Ewan McGregor and AC/DC's Angus Young. Raised in a highly musical family, PETE LYNCH discovered his love for music at a tender age. At six he purchased his first album, "The Who - Live at Leeds." A few weeks later, he picked up his father's guitar and began learning his first chords from his dad, a Czech dissident. Shortly after PETE'S parents decided to move to Europe. The rest of his childhood and youth were shaped by living in a foreign country, experiencing his mother and father getting divorced, getting in trouble with the law and, being torn between two continents. Experiences that had a profound impact on him. He was eleven when he moved on to playing the bass guitar, formed his first band and played his first concerts. Three years later PETE LYNCH decided to move back to Virginia. At sixteen PETE once again packed his bags and moved to Europe where he played in various bands, putting all his energy and time into writing songs, training his voice and vocal skills, and toured the continent playing in subways, in clubs and at festivals. He also supported bands such as the Go-Betweens, the Godfathers, Nina Hagen, and Concrete Blonde. Nina Hagen and PETE'S friend Simon Hinkler, the guitarist of The Mission encouraged him to pursue his vocal training and to launch a solo career. Currently PETE LYNCH has his home base in Denver and in Vienna.
