Berlin, the California-based new wave collective, recruited Terri Nunn as lead singer in 1979, and so the band is celebrating 40 years of making music this year. Over the decades, Berlin has continued as a live band with Terri’s undeniably alluring vocals, but the classic lineup of the band only ever made three records together — Pleasure Victim (1982), Love Life (1984), and Count Three & Pray (1986). But what three marvelous albums!
Today, Terri has reunited with her classic bandmates, John Crawford and David Diamond. Berlin recorded a new album, Transcendence, due for release on Aug. 2. Meanwhile, The B-52s invited Berlin to open for them on a farewell tour, including a stop at The Anthem on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Parklife DC’s Mickey McCarter recently chatted with Terri Nunn about working with John Crawford and David Diamond again, the upcoming megatour, and being a female musician, among other things.
