Lissy Trullie Escapes Swine Flu

Jul 7, 2009 1:44pm

Lissy Trullie, the band named after the downtown NYC model/janitor-cum-rocker, today released news about a recent brush with the H1N1 virus. (You may recall we had Lissy and her drummer on Amplified a few weeks ago.) Last month, the band was in German when bassist Ian Fenger was diagnosed with swine flu and send to the hospital. While many Swine Flu victims say the illness is pretty mild, Fenger was seriously sick and hooked up to an IV. Meanwhile, German government officials put the rest of the band under quarantine in their hotel, even though they were not showing any symptoms. They had to cancel a bunch of their European shows as a consequence.The rest of the story from their press release after the photos:  "Three days later the outlook finally began to brighten.  With Ian's condition improved and everyone else seemingly healthy, the rest of the band were allowed to leave for London (home of label Wichita Recordings) providing they remain quarantined upon arriving. Six days after being admitted to hospital, Ian was finally discharged, and returned to the United States to be with family. The rest of the band were also eventually deemed safe for the public, and were able to salvage the final two shows of their tour in Paris and Amsterdam." The band is now back in the US, working on their first full-length record.
