Sex Gang Children
Formed at the beginning of 1982 by vocalist and songwriter Andi Sex Gang, the band quickly made a name for themselves in the London underground scene with their intense theatrical live performances and unique brand of sound and onstage visuals.
Their first EP ‘Beasts’ was released in June 1982 and became one of the best selling UK 12″ singles, remaining in the indie charts for the next 18 months.
Their seminal debut album ‘Song and Legend’, released in 1983 shot straight to No. 1 in the indie charts, entering the top 30 in the UK mainstream.
Cited as an early influence by the likes of Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden and Danzig, Sex Gang Children have never compromised in their approach to the art, with songs such as Deiche, Sebastiane and Mauritia Mayer remaining to this day alternative and Goth club favourites all over the world.
In the last 14 years the band have regularly headlined the major alternative and Goth festivals in Europe. In 2013 they released the critically acclaimed album ‘Viva Vigilante!’. Returning from two sell-out concerts in Tokyo earlier this year to perform an exclusive anniversary show in London, a celebration of three decades of art attack.
In 2016 Original members come together for their tour in 2016.
The Jezebel Tour is in support of their upcoming singles album showcasing the single releases A & B sides from 1982 and 83.
