Loveless may face silver screen

Friday, January 23, 2015 – Lydia Loveless film star?

The Ohio native may just be on the silver screen if a Kickstarter campaign from the director is successful.

Filmmaker Gorman Bechard, who has chronicled The Replacements, Archers of Loaf, and Husker Du's Grant Hart is turning his camera towards Loveless in "Who Is Lydia Loveless?" He has raised almost half of the $27,500 he is trying to raise from 84 backers.

The feature-length documentary will follow Loveless and her band into the studio as they lay down tracks for their forthcoming record. Along with live performances shot specifically for the film and interviews with Loveless and her band it will visit places integral to her musical development, focus on the life of a working musician and answer the title's question.

"Lydia is the future of rock and roll," Bechard said. "She straps you onto an emotional roller coaster of love, lust, drunken mistakes, a little stalking, a lot of heartbreak, and you're left breathless, stunned, happy to have taken the ride."

Loveless has released CDs through Bloodshot.

"I'm excited to work with Gorman," said Loveless. "He's very passionate about music and about the true meaning and spirit of rock and roll."

Bechard's three previous music docs were "Color Me Obsesses, a Film about the Replacements," "What Did You Expect? about Archers of Loaf and "Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times of Grant Hart.

The KickStarter campaign runs through March 18th. The KickStarter campaign can be found at www.WhoIsLydiaLoveless.com,

Filming is slated for spring and summer 2015, with a premiere planned for 2016.

CD review - Girl Crazy And Single(s) The 11 tracks on Lydia Loveless's "Boy Crazy And Single(s)" are split fairly evenly between the 5 songs found on her now out-of-print 2013 "Boy Crazy" EP and 6 singles and B-sides, most of which were not released previously. The "Boy Crazy" EP tracks are real gems - lyrically compelling relationship tales with catchy melodies and radio-friendly choruses. "All The Time" is the perfect example. Loveless takes a gritty subject matter (a mistress coming to ...
CD review - Real There are certain parallels between Lydia Loveless and kd lang; brilliantly and beautifully expressive voices, great writers and performers and just enough twang to be considered country, but far enough outside the mainstream to be largely rejected by the genre's star making machinery. But where lang made her country bones by shifting from cow punk to a traditionally torchy gear and working with icon Owen Bradley and then succeeded on her own terms, Loveless has evolved within the indie ...
CD review - Somewhere Else On her follow-up to "Indestructible Machine," Ohio singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless sounds like she has taken everything great Stevie Nicks, Garrison Starr and Neko Case have managed to do over their careers and made them her own. The new full-length effort kicks off with "Really Wanna See You," a mid-tempo rocker veering from roots rock to polished pop. And from that moment on, Loveless takes you on a very enjoyable trek. Part of Loveless' appeal is her knowing each ...
