LESLEY WOODS OF THE AU PAIRS
Descibed as one of the most striking women in British Rock Lesley Woods fronted the seminal British band the Au Pairs from 1978 until their implosion in 1983. Along wth their musical contempories the Gang of Four, the Slits, Bush Tetras and Joy Division they dared to speak the mindset of the post punk generation with songs that challenged the sexual politics of the day and ripped the daily news into taut, transfixing danceable songs
Their first of 3 albums Playing with a Different Sex ( 1981 ) is considered a post-punk masterpiece
In 2023 and after 30 years as an immigration lawyer, Lesley Woods returns to the fray. Ever the singular stage presence, Lesley uses the years to her advantage mixing up the past, present and future into something completely modern and progressive which will warm your heart and make you wanna dance
