Honeymoon In Red is a concept album released in 1987 as a Lydia Lunch album. Sometimes Honeymoon In Red is referred to as a band or alternately as a collaboration between Lydia Lunch and The Birthday Party.

Recorded at Game Studio in Berlin-Kreuzberg in June/July 1982 and at Cold Storage Studios in London August 1982, except for track 2 recorded at New York City, Brooklyn, BC Studios in May 1987.

Initial mix by Steve Montgomery in London in August 1982.

Personnel in 1982 session: Lydia Lunch, Genevieve McGuckin, Murray Mitchell, Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Rowland S. Howard and Tracy Pew (at various intervals, but never all together).

Personnel in 1987 remix session: Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore and Clint Ruin (a.k.a. Jim G. Thirlwell).

Recordings with members of The Birthday Party, which were at the time deemed inferior to the "Some Velvet Morning" single recordings. This record was supposed to be released by People's Records (run by Michael Schäumer and Michael Voigt [Monogam Records]) in 1982, but the label went bankrupt and the tapes were lost for years. One of the master reels has been lost forever. The surviving tapes were remixed by Jim G. Thirlwell and some guitar overdubs were done by Thurston Moore at the BC Studios in Brooklyn, New York in May 1987. Released in this form without the consent of Nick Cave and Mick Harvey because of the remixing which didn't leave many of the originals intact.

Only "Dead River" and "Done Dun" were left fairly untouched and are also available on Lydia Lunch's 12" <a href="http://www.discogs.com/release/451947">The Crumb</a>. "The River" ("Dead River") on this release is shorter (2:19) and with less overdubs.

Nick Cave is listed on the album only with aliases as "Her dead twin" and "A drunk cowboy junkie".

Mick Harvey is listed on the album only with aliases as "Anonymous", "Scatman Cramden", "Howie Dewitt", "Dick Strum", "Ralf Bellow", "Spencer Turk" and "Frank Leer".
