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?
i really like his new nails with the hair on the end of them ,,,,i just tried to do it and did it with over prosesed hair and what a mess....he must have someone else painting his face....i love doing make-up and that day was horible
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 wife...is 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 think..it 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 is Jason. It's not a very good picture. (He's been all Pete Burns-ified). It's from the Dead or Alive website. But trust. I have great pics of him. He's a beauty! Ask Kitty. Don't go by this hideous picture.

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)
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..
I love how you can say ANYTHING just to watch silly people believe it! I tell people at Chengs that I shellac my makeup and leave it on for a month. She may have really gottten a skin graft, but if so, it's from her thighs or her ass. Still, I love the foreskin story. I'll have to use it!
Oh ... Jeez .... yet again in this section we have hit an all time low.... "Hopelessly devoted" and the name Bobby Trendy... can we kick it up a notch or two please...Or i might subject you all to a section on Hopeless about my love for Mike Tyson!
I was having martinis with Billy Beyond last night at Crate & Barrel and he told me that he just got a new pic of Pete Burns' lips. (he secretly lurks) Hopefully he'll post it so we can have something else to talk about beside that tired old queen Bobby Trendy.
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".
I must thank those of you who are keeping this thread going. I have to admit, i've been in the dark about this phenomenon! After the whole *right round* episode way back when, i fell out of the loop. But thank you so much for getting me back in touch with continous thriller that is *Pete Burns*
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 (D.O.A.band 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' over..how 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 purse...so 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 .....
Pete and Steve came into Cheng's this week and hung out for some cocktails. I think he looks gorgeous. It's not a natural look by far, but some people were just meant to be extremists. He wears it very well.
He was working a gorgeous short do which really complimented his face.
Check out this latest interview with Pete in our home town newspaper. Pretyy good interview and 2 great pictures (make sure you to the second page to check out his parisian pirate look)...his lips are HUGE, I love it!
but I didnt know some of those things about him - like how someone could be so "BORED" theyd inflate their lips or get a eye lift. No vanity there. no sir. But it doesnt really matter what he says, how disingenuous he always seems or how he treats people - he's fabulous.
.. 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...
As a good catholic boy how dare you use our Lords name in the same sentence as her ladyshit Ms Burns.... Gerrover yer big self our Jimmy.. or as we say in Liverpool ... yer a meff! YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU REALLY
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 overlooked...so was George... Aneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeway.............. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry this was a bit self indulgent
Hoping someone in the UK can help me out... I've just found out about a cover version of Nightmares in Wax's "Black Leather" by a band calling themselves "Nude"
It's on a CD put out by London's Ghetto apparently a hot spot right now... appearances by all kinds of 80s legends.
Here's the track listing:
The Cock @ Ghetto - Volume 1 Tasty Tim
01.Black leather - Nude (Dead or Alive cover) 02.Electroclash anthem - Morplay 03.Useless - Tobell von cartier 04.It kills - W.I.T. 05.Perspex sex - Free form five 06.Supermodeling - Larry Tee 07.Church of the poison mind (2002 elektro mix)- Boy George 08.Don't you want me - Human League/Jade 09.Just what I needed - W.I.T. 10.Replicunt - Dirty Sanchez 11.Contraversy - Prance 12.Soccer practice - Johnny McGovern 13.Dead sexy - Nude 14.Do I look like a slut - Ave D 15.Unpretty/Electricity - OMD/TLC
I can't seem to find anywhere to buy this online. Any suggestions?
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?)
We can't wait to get a hold on this... We've got most of this on bootleg VHS but DVD!!!!

They have 3 performaces that even Anna would like. (During the Wayne Hussey period) They have a video for "Flowers" on there with Pre-plastic surgery Pete... Black all around his eyes, wearing buckskin and 3-4 dead animals worth of bones around his neck.
We ordered it from HMV UK. It showed up 3 days later.
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....
