Hopefully you already know Lach from his six critically acclaimed albums or perhaps as the founder of the antifolk movement.

You can also learn more by listening to his latest album Ramshackle Heart (4 stars!-Mojo) and listen to the BBC’s recent documentary of Lach with Suzanne Vega, Michelle Shocked and Teenage Fanclub.

“Lach is the mastermind of Antifolk, like a Lower East Side rendezvous of Bob Dylan and Patti Smith. Like black snow, stalled subway cars and random violence, Lach is a Manhattan institution.” – NY Times

“He’s incredibly bright, he’s influential, he’s funny, he’s smart, he’s got his own, sort of,  counter-culture charm. A very intelligent songwriter, funny, poetic. If you actually take the time to read his lyrics there’s always some beautiful bit of thoughtfulness there or something unexpected. He became part of New York folklore.” – Suzanne Vega

“The roots of modern songwriting: Bob Dylan, Syd Barrett, The New York Dolls, Nick Drake and Lach!” – Timeout London

“Lach is the best songwriter I’ve ever met.” – Adam Green of The Moldy Peaches

“Five stars! Really quite magical. He’s such an affable, unassuming guy. Lach tells stories. His songs, if you listen to his records, are very infectious and you find yourself with a tune rattling inside your head.” – Colin Somerville, The Herald “He’s a street-corner ambassador. Lach is beat. He’s a ringmaster. He’s a poet’s poet.” – Michelle Shocked

“Lach is so what the East Village used to be all about. He’s a gruff‑and-tough punk turned poet with a heart o’gold singing jangly, funny, pop‑punk songs.”-TimeoutNY “Lach put it all together. The godfather of Antifolk!” – Dean Friedman

“He’s an absolute legend.” –Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland

“Incredibly entertaining. The captain of our ship. Not just a singer/songwriter, he’s an entertainer. Punk rock kids are going to relate to it but also I think that the little old ladies in their coach trips could enjoy spending an hour or two in Lach’s company.” – Duglas T Stewart of The BMX Bandits

“Think battered acoustic thrashings, think sarky, smart-mouthed wit and wisdom but most importantly think Lach. Lach is rarely less than a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy, and likely to send you home with several favourite new songs”- The Guardian UK “Lach is my hero and mentor.” – Hamell on Trial

“Lach is a star! More Woody Allen than Woody Guthrie and a raised middle finger to the folk purists.” -NME

“The best punk rhythm guitarist since Johnny Ramone.” – Billy Ficca of Television

“NYC’s living legend, riotously catchy!” – Timeout London

“4 Stars! Splendid! Best of it’s kind!” – Mojo

“Dangerously fun!” – Uncut

“Genius” – Penthouse
