Introduction to our new signing from Paul Morley plus 'Immaterial' 7inch released November 2009

Manchester's LoneLady has joined Warp and her first release with us will be a 7inch entitled 'Immaterial' on the 9th November.

The track, and the album, were co-produced with Guy Fixsen, previously known for his work with My Bloody Valentine, The Breeders and Stereolab.

Rather than offer you the usual biog info, LoneLady got in touch with esteemed music journalist and general UK music guru Paul Morley to give you a brief introduction...
