Omar Rodriguez Lopez & Lydia Lunch is a collaboration between Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group and spoken word artist Lydia Lunch. The EP was released on October 8, 2007 in Europe.

Rodriguez-Lopez had been a fan of Lydia's work and invited her to the All Tomorrow's Parties Festival when The Mars Volta curated it in December 2005. The meeting eventually resulted in their first recorded collaboration with the intention to record more in the future.[1]

The music was recorded in Amsterdam and New York City and Lydia's vocals were recorded at her own studio in Barcelona.

Cover design is by Sonny Kay. The symbols on the two buckets on the cover are Arabic coca-cola labels.
