Les ‘Lector’ Smith is an English keyboard player. He is currently a member of doom metal band Anathema, after having played for British black metal band Cradle of Filth. During his time in Cradle of Filth (1997–1999), his stage persona consisted of wearing a custom Vicar Priest top, black leather pants and goth make-up. He played keyboards in two of Cradle’s releases: Cruelty and the Beast and From the Cradle to Enslave. Les Smith was also a member of the highly controversial band Tourettes, which in turn was a side-project from a band named the Healey Beats. Post-Cradle of Filth, he accused only original band member Dani Filth of considering it his own solo project (“Dani and the Filths” he jokes)
