Biography

London, United Kingdom (1982 – present)

The mayhem that is Alien Sex Fiend, a band formed in London in 1982 with Nik Fiend and his spouse Mrs. Fiend as the driving force of the band. Alien Sex Fiend became one of the regular acts at the legendary Batcave club, which has become known as the home of many other goth bands.

The band’s sound is always evolving - nightmarish drones, psychotic samples, throbbing synths, analogue drums and heavy guitar work all gouged and distorted with Nik Fiend’s notorious thick cockney drawl growling over the top. A genuine edge of trippy insanity & excitement that’s sickly euphoric.

2010 saw the band release a new studio album - their 13th - Death Trip to both fan & critical acclaim. “…it’s the best record they’ve made since the 80’s”]- Mick Mercer

In 2012 Alien Sex Fiend continue their mission with shows & festival appearances in Spain (May), Germany (July), UK (July), Poland (July) & Whitby Goth Weekend (Nov) culminating in a very special “Batcave 30th Anniversary Show” at the Boston Dome in London on 1st December 2012, to mark 30 years to the very day that Alien Sex Fiend played their first ever gig at the original Batcave club.

“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
