Biography

Several bands have used the name Lamb over the years:

1. The most widely-known Lamb is a duo formed in 1996 in Manchester, England, by Lou Rhodes (singer-songwriter) and Andy Barlow (production). They incorporated into their musical style a distinctive mixture of , , , , and with a strong vocal element and, in their later works especially, some acoustic influences. Lamb are notable for their highly experimental work, a distinctive production style, Lou’s often passionate lyrical style, and their artistic videos.

Their signature song is Gorecki, from their eponymous debut album and it was inspired by Henryk Górecki’s Third Symphony, the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. Other essential songs are Cotton Wool, God Bless, B Line, Gabriel, Sweet, and Wonder.

To date, the band has released five studio albums: Lamb (1996), Fear Of Fours (1999), What Sound (2001), Between Darkness And Wonder (2003) and 5 (2011). In 2003 they also issued a compilation entitled Best Kept Secrets.

In February 2005, Lamb announced that they would pursue their own projects, ending their collaboration for now. Their last concerts were in Paradiso, Amsterdam, and were filmed to be used for a live DVD.

Lou Rhodes started the Infinite Bloom record label, and released her first solo album Beloved One (2006) which received a Mercury nomination. This was followed by Bloom (2007), and One Good Thing (2010). Lou also branched out and became an author, with children’s books The Phlunk (2013) and The Phlunk’s Worldwide Symphony (2014 Strata Books).

    Backspace Unwind is so good, like true trip hop should be.

    New album makes me nostalgic for the 90's electronic music scene, not for its style but for its quality: it's the demonstration that 20 years ago musicians used to work much more on sounds and composition. Backspace Unwind is made with that love for music and details.
