Arrrrgh! You know s/he is not one of my favourite people.......but that feud was many years ago........ and we all mellow .....(or do we?)....blonde streaks (it happens to the best of us!)..and i guess it is better than the time she took those tanning tablets that turned the palms of her hands bright Tellytubbie yellow!
Does she still live with the wife and boyfriend? (Lyn and Pete?) _ Lee Chappel are you on line...tell us the dish?
who was Jason? I never knew him...should i have known him???? Daddy dish! daddy dish!
Steve Coy, poor lamb...not the sharpest knife in the drawer...(but then again who is bothered with the mantel piece when ya pokin the fire eh!) what about Pete's he still with her? They hate me...i think it was back to the days he bought a Westwood duffle coat and i told him he looked like Paddington Bear.... this was way back in the days...when he used to paint his forehead yellow - jimmyscouse you must remember this...Probe records, Catherine St... better news is the fact that Wayne Hussey who used to be in DOA is doing SO well making the $$$ with Mission UK Internationally... well done 'Our Wayne'...and to wasn't that long ago..that Pete and Steve kidnapped Waynes gear (guitar etc) in the hope it would stop him from giggin! HA!
Then this must have been taken right after your comment:

She was still with him about 6-7 years ago when they cancelled that concert in Indy. Lynn was the one that showed up to tell them that they'd been booked in a "Truck Stop." They got mad and cancelled the show...

Wayne's done better than both of his former bands... Sisters of Mercy haven't put out anything since what '91?

This just in...

Poor Pete Burns. The Dead Or Alive singer has been sectioned by the police for his own safety.

The problems began when Pete was seen in Notting Hill trying to superglue one of his stiletto shoes to a parked car.

A friend saw him and, thinking he'd been on a drink or drug binge, suggested he go home and sober up.

Pete tried to go home, but he had forgotten where he lived, so broke into his neighbour's house. She came home a few hours later and heard singing and music coming from upstairs.

Upon reaching the bathroom, she found Pete sitting in her bath in full drag, singing "You spin me round" in a trance-like state.

Pete is currently being held in a maximum security "celebrity relaxation centre".
New "You Spin Me Round" mixes soon to be released...

You Spin Me Round (Squeaky Clean Mix)
You Spin Me Round (Shower Power Mix)
You Spin Me Round (Tub Dub)
You Spin Me Round (Heels on Wheels Mix)
You Spin Me Round (Unglued)
You Spin Me Round (Glue vs. Lo o Mix)
You Spin Me Round (Extra Conditioning Mix)

with extra bonus track:
Isn't It a Pity (That I'm Completely Out of My Head Mix)

Oh what a hoot! I am LOVING THIS!
I am sure its true too... too bizarre a story to make up.... s/he has just lost it... but we knew that ages ago.... sad when i think about Pete as he was the one person i knew who was fairly 'inspired' with his image in the early days..when he worked in our local record shop..he used to serve wearing a chain or human fingers bones (courtesy of The Cramps I believe) and black contact lense that covered his whole eye (the white and iris) ... it was a great image... but then he just started head to toe in a designer which to me is no different than a scally kid wearing Fubu or Nike head to toe... and now..i just don't think s/he knows who s/he is.... and the image is just tired...reminds me of a dark haired Lily Savage (for you who know Lil)...the bitterness s/he has too is just sad-bastard to me also...(can't we all just get along!!)..but, anyway! I LOVE this story... thanks for keeping us posted!
You guys are demented if you think this distorted looks is good... this all reminds me of that movie Brazil... when Katherine Helmond gets all that wierd surgery and everyone is saying how fab she looks! LOL Daddy... i thought you and I had the same taste (tee hee tee hee)

You're all mad... God bless ya!

Talk about smashing the boundaries - how could one not applaud such a visionary and pilgrim. Like a much more saleable version of Jamie Gumb in Silence of the Lambs, sewing himself a suit of female, Pete is BECOMING.

But the pop cult reference I immediately had was from Ab Fab when Edina is getting the lips done in the dream and suddenly her lips are half the size of her face and she begs "No More!"

But agree or disagree with you Anna Nicole, you are always divine reading..
Billy was calling them "Bris Martinis" because they had this pink lychee fruit thing at the bottom of the glass that looked like a shriveled up baby foreskin. I didn't write it before because it's gross and I don't know how to spell Bris. I looked it up but couldn't find it.
Anyway they were "Bris Martinis".

If Jackie Mason, Charles Schwab or Mayor Ed Koch are lurking in this forum maybe you can help us spell "Bris".

Few things you might not know about Pete Burns... when he lived in his hometown Liverpool (England)..he lived with his wife, Lyn as well as his boyfriend Steve Coy ( member)...they had a small flat on the edge of the city centre - living next block to Frankie Goes to Hollywoods Holly Johnson, Julian Cope and his then girlfriend Courtney Love, and Wayne Hussey (Mission UK)..we hear that Pete and Lyn and Steve shared the space with bunks beds two of them that they put together with queen matress' clever...i hear that in the past few yrs the happy trio split (???) also heard that Steve (who was always a rough street scally) beat Pete up so badly that Pete fled to Germany for safety... Pete was never really that inventive ..more of a designer clothes horse... he was from a rich family so could afford to take the train to London an buy out the whole Vivienne Westwood collection each season (sort of like the Hilton sisters do now!)... this at the time in Liverpool when the likes of Jayne Casey (founders of the nightclub Cream) used to shave her head and paint on 'hair' with boot polish,... Pete Wylie (from band Wah!) (who used to be in a band with Burns and Ian-Bunnymen- Mc Culloch)used to wear a toilet seat round his neck on stage...Holly Johnson performed at a family park day summerstage in a pair of jeans with his bare arse hanging out from the circle he cut out...and my best mate Helly used to wear t-bags for earings and carry a kettle as a Mr. Burns wearing head to toe designed by someone else working behind the counter of a record shop...was not THAT inventive in our town...just thought you might know that .....

.. I agree Jade. Love him (me) or hate him(Anna) you can not deny that he has never wavered and has always rocked his own look. Hislook today is just as individual as the looks he put together 20 years ago, never once bowing to conformity, unlike a lot of his 80's contempories.... like daddy mentioned in an earlier post he is "living it!"
See, the thing is ... i think that he is hardly ever 'original' that is my point... there was a time (Jimmy you will remember when he worked in Probe records) when he used to wear bones and have chrimped Banshee hair - THAT was original... since then he has always just bought 'designer' stuff which to me is NOT original. To admire his mad lips - edina did it ages ago in AbFab! (raff our Roud). I tell ya...i was on Flatbush avenue recently (as ya do) and the outfits I saw on those Jamaican Dancehall gals! THAT was original. Totally out there... but nobody will give props to that being original and inspired as its not packaged for avantgarde... ya get my drift...
Jade by all means be facetious to our Jimmy ... are ya yankin me too? if so do it soft and tender pls...
PS OTher thing is... i grew up around Pete, he lived 2 blocks from me in Liverpool, worked in the record store (Probe)by me, my sister designed his first record covers, his first manager Francesco was my bezzy mate etc etc... to know him is to hate him... he really is a spoilt lil rich kid, His missus Lyn was really cunty.. yet Steve, the fella, was actually a really decent (abeit scallywag), although Pete and Lyn wouldn't let him speak to me! its like the Michael Alig conversation here... when you know someone is a total wazzock you just can't keep hearing how wonderful s/he is...

Oh no, we can't compare Ms. Burns with Mr. Alig.

He may have killed YOU in PRINT, and been a prick to most of the world, but the worst crime that he's committed was allowing his personality to get in the way of his talent/success.

He's screwed us on 3 concert dates, 2 of which we didn't get our money back.

Did your sister do the "Number 11" cover? It's one of my all time favorite 45 artworks...

OK kids... so i have my Banners out and I am marching again against that dogs-knob... but just indulge me at least...
The similarities with him and Alig I mean purely as the fact that both are not THAT original and both are vindictive bitches to boot.
Sorry to hear that he stiffed you guys with the gigs... my sis did the brown cover with his black contacts on... I can't remember which one it was.. on Probe/Inevitable records it would be... the early DOA stuff was great, I will say that... they used to have this drummer who was an ex-Liverpool docker.. very str8 brawny-towels lookalike bloke called Joey Musker who called everyone Sausage "alright der Sausage!" and this Joes Ramones lookalike bass player Martin....very funny times...
Love that cover... The only one I like better is the "Lover Come Back To Me" UK 12" cover.

Zaz just transfered all his "Nighmares in Wax" stuff and all the DOA singles and the EP prior to "Sophisticated Boom Boom" onto CD this past weekend, so the early singles are fresh in my mind.

Their first single as DOA was "Flowers" a black and white closeup shot with him screaming (his old teeth showing) not very attractive.

There is a pic of the old band with Joey Musker, I think it's on the back of the "Misty Circles" 45, I'll have to scan it in an post it.

I've heard that about Pete, that he was pretty much doing what everyone else was doing, but claiming that he did it first... There was always that big debate on who wore huge oversized hats with dreads first, Boy, Pete or those chicks from Hayzee Fantazee


Ok... (hope i don't bore you with this one) but... long story... I was a precocious kid (wot moi shock!).. i used to go down to London and hang out in the fashionable clothes stores (the only thing you can do when you are 14.. I met this one bloke who worked in a store called PX (Steve Strange / Visage) who took me under his wing and was reeeally sweet to me - i was a stupid kid (still am!).. he introduced me to George (Boy) who worked in a clothes store The Foundry and had dreads and am amazing image and a hoot of a personality... i knew all of George and the Blitz kids images cos i was going down to London and then going back to Liverpool (our home town)and then I saw Pete getting money from his rich parents going to London and buying all of this stuff from these stores claiming that it was all of his ideas.. George was going to come up to Liverpool and visit me (he was on the cusp of Culture Club fame) and Pete and Lyn got wind of this and went ballistic and were physically threatening George if he came to Liverpool... for no reason other than folks would realize that Pete is not original... it was all so silly and of course I sided with George... so Pete hated me. Its VERY silly.... but they were very threatening...
Then Wayne Hussey (misson UK, original DOA)guitarist used to live with me and my mum and family in the Uk version of "The Project"(can you imagine, we had a riot all dressin up in that environment) and the things Pete did to Wayne were just out of order and negative and revengeful.
I think the original band and his original image was fantastic but they all got caught up in it all....
But I just get livid when folks admire him for originality and talent.... you know its that ole thing when someone is so rotten and they seem to do well and you just thing Jeez there are so many talented amazing people how come THEY made it big.
Steve Strange was an amazing talent for re-inventing himself (not particularly as a musician) but image wise and well was George...
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry this was a bit self indulgent

hey guys...
don't have an answer to your GHETTO cd question but here's a clue (maybe)...

W.I.T. and ave. d are both, to my knowledge, larry tee productions. morplay may also be. as may johnny mcgovern. they're all part of the electro-"splash."
tobell may even be on that label.
larry did work with another drag queen once.
(what was her name??)
and maybe this band "nude" is with him, too.
BUT...i can't remember the name of larry's record company. (can anyone else?? daddy?)

maybe i should lay off this hawaiian green stuff.

The bones Pete used to wear were supposedly human he and some guy i used to hang with (Kris Guidio - google him his an amazing artist did loads of Cramps art work). used to wear the same one... if i remember the rumor was they got them from Bryan Gregory (original Cramps member) who got them from grave robbers.... and so the legend goes.... Pre surger Pete with bones and black contacts was far more original i think... especailly that time he and Lyn took tanning tablets and they both turned bright Orange like tellietubbies... ahh those were the days....
