"Sweet Knives recorded 4 more songs and instead of waiting to complete an entire record we convinced Alicja and gang to do a special Double 7" with a Gatefold Cover! Alicja has already created 2 videos for this release and they just completed a tour with the songs laced in throughout the set. 4 new songs depicting the direction that Alicja and Rich are taking the reformed band. Synth Rock, with soulful vocals that have guitar hooks and ripping lyrics striking like a cobra attack!"

Recorded in 2018

In 2005 Memphis black-wave synth punk band Lost Sounds called it quits after being kicked out of a house in Stuttgart in the middle of a long long night. With that, four albums and numerous singles and outtakes releases were leftover, and the brutal live show would never happen again. As Jay Reatard (½ of the Lost Sounds songwriting team with Alicja Trout) continued to grow his hopeful career on Matador Records the other band members moved on down less-publicised roads.

Rich Crook, drummer of Lost Sounds, formed Lover! and THING and toured as singer/guitar player. Alicja toured with River City Tanlines, Black Sunday, Mouserocket, and released solo recordings as Alicja-pop. Meanwhile time was healing the wounds that had caused the band break-up.

Sadly, Jay’s light died in January 2010.So, what was to become of the 100+ Lost Sounds song catalog? Alicja, Rich, and original member John Garland have brought back a set of tunes from the old Lost Sounds closet. Along with Johnny Valiant on bass they are called Sweet Knives, named after a song from the Lost Sounds 2004 In The Red “Future Touch” seven song EP.

Lost Sounds was known for a sound filled with angst, paranoia, and anxiety all rolled up in a synth laden rock n roll tasty burrito. Sweet Knives carries on the quest with a new delivery, less likely to fall apart and fall off stage, and more likely to infect a room with a symphony of sharpened blades.
