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).

    ...пятый оказался слабоват, может поэтому я и узнал про его существование только сейчас, но по сравнению с предыдущим 2003-го года альбомом очень слабо. у Lamb всегда были эксперименты, а вот в последнем пятом как-то вообще с этим слабо. чилл-аут почти прямо...

    Years ago i was sitting in a coffee shop and this haunting, beautiful song was playing in the background. The chatter and the noise in there was pretty loud but this soft yet distinctive voice stood out to me. I tried desperately to try to hear the lyrics so i could search for the song on the internet later on when i got home. All i could make out was 'i could fly' and then something about wings. I spent years Googling those lyrics which were literally all i had to go on to try and find the song that had moved me so much that day and i gave up hope of ever finding it. Until i stumbled upon it by accident while watching YouTube videos. I am so fucking grateful, i can't even tell you.
