Lords of Acid is a Belgian post-industrial/acid house/techno band that started as a spinoff of Praga Khan with the controversial New Beat single "I Sit on Acid" in 1988. Created by Jade 4U, Praga Khan, and Olivier Adams; their debut album, 1991's Lust (along with additional singles "Rough Sex" and "I Must Increase My Bust"), were critically acclaimed within the electronic music and dance music communities for their outrageously sexual lyrics and sound samples - perhaps their most popular song, "I Sit on Acid", begins with an Acappella lyric "Darling, come here / fuck me up the…" only to be interrupted with a grinding rave beat. Their second album was Voodoo-U, which featured a more industrial sound. This was followed by Our Little Secret (1997), Heaven Is an Orgasm (1998) and Expand Your Head (1999). In 2000 they released a more rock-influenced album entitled Farstucker and in 2003, after being in the business for fifteen years, released a greatest hits album called Greatest T*ts.
Their fans formed an online community called the Children of Acid. In 2010 after being silent for almost 10 years, Praga Khan announced a new album was in the works with a 2011 release date.
Lords of Acid's soundtrack credits include such blockbusters as: Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Sliver, Strange Days, Paparazzi and was featured in the 2010 trailer Sucker Punch.
