Cherry Filth and the Deathlegs
You know that girl with the obviously gay boyfriend? Remember when you were worried your partner would leave you for an Austrian sex robot? What about the time you realised your boyfriend had a shameful secret involving bum gravy? Funnily enough, Cherry Filth and the Deathlegs have been pondering these very issues.
Cherry Filth and the Deathlegs are James, Sarah Lea, Kerry, Fiona and Jess. When did songs about betrayal, lust and secret gay boyfriends become so much fun.
“.... A hard act to follow, but we were unprepared for the sheer electro-glitz showmanship of the next billing. Dressed in sparkly bejewelled converse and a pair of tight red trousers PSYCHO FAG!!! Is an audacious sleaze-ridden tour de force of floor-spinning, white-boy hip-pop. Explicit gay-erotic lyrics rapped over tight, catchy electro. Part comedy, part brilliance, there’s something so brave and refreshing about this unashamed extrovert that even the shaven-headed hetero-punksters are bellowing along to there’s a boy on the internet I want to have sex with... excitedly chanting lyrics like pre-pubescents at a Spice Girls concert. Already lusted after in the clubs of Brighton and Soho, this energetic young star proves that he can induce euphoria in straight venues too. Bizarrely, this popularity is unaffected by his lyrical lashings against Straight Boyz. In short, a star; see him, book him, and check out his MySpace... www.realbristol.net

Already Peaches-approved, Alan MX kicks out beat-crunching laptop funk, seemingly in his sleep. Located somewhere on a curve that takes in the solo meanderings of Thom Yorke, the pop licks of Justin Timberlake and the stark humanity of PJ Harvey. No wonder he was instantly signed up by the first record company he sent a demo to!
