“A multi-gendered beast made from parts of Peepholes, Bloody Knees, Wetdog and Trash Kit. She made her debut at Trans, the tranny karaoke night in Shoreditch, where she forgot her drumsticks and had to use kitchen utensils. CoverGirl is all heat sweat and chaos disco.”

“They look and sound like a cross between Sid & Nancy and Bonnie’n’ Clyde fed through a fuzz box…. They seem to leave the audience speechless.”
“Georgia Asphalt are three like-minded noiseniks from around London who were brought together by a love of howling guitars, awkward melodies, slick R&B and pop music and pound shop bumper value packs of glitter glue.”
“Noisy gays. Somewhere between Jesus Lizard, Beyonce and Oxbow.”
