Biography:Forming in 1982 in London, UK, Alien Sex Fiend played their first ever gig at the original Batcave club in Soho, London. They quickly became known in the batcave and subsequent gothic scenes, then far beyond those genres for their dark electronic, industrial, punk sound, with its mixture of heavy samples, trippy loops, guitar and manic vocals. Comprising of frontman Nik Fiend and his spouse Mrs. Fiend as the nucleus, the band has put out a long and musically varied discography over the years. Switching easily from heavy industrial to ambient experimental styles, and everything between, fans of Alien Sex Fiend are always wondering what the next album is going to entail.
"But that's nothing compared with the manic nightmare that is Alien Sex Fiend... I doubt, in fact, that I've ever heard anything uglier in the name of music - a cult following seems assured" Colin Irwin, Melody Maker, September 1982.
