Mystery Hangup Drummer Lux Joins Nekromantix
We talked just yesterday about Anaheim's Mystery Hangup breaking up, and drummer Lux has already announced her new project: joining the Nekromantix, taking the place of Andy DeMize, who passed away last month due to a car accident. Lux will be the first female in the band's 20-year history.
More information can be found on the Nekromantix MySpace blog. The psychobilly band also announced a new permanent guitarist, Franc, who had been playing with them since December.
Having canceled their appearance at Musink (next weekend at the Orange County Fairgrounds) after DeMize's death, the new trio isn't scheduled to play until a tour with Reverend Horton Heat this summer--a tour that is not, as of yet, scheduled to come through here but surely it's only a matter of time before the new Nekromantix play OC.
Thanks once again to KPFK (and the Weekly!)'s trusty Gabriel San Roman for his work following this story.
