CLASSIC ALBUMS (VOLUME 1) AND BBC SESSIONS COLLECTION : 4 CD BOX SET

Re-issue date : 2 September 2016

The first four classic albums - "Who's Been Sleeping in My Brain?", "Acid Bath", "Maximum Security" and "It - The Album" - of deep fried proto electro punk from London’s industrial goth troubadours ALIEN SEX FIEND.

Also contains relevant single mixes, B-sides, rarities and six PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED JOHN PEEL SESSION recordings (listed as "Live at the BBC").

Originally released in Febrary 2015, this Box Set was a huge success, quickly selling out. A re-pressing date has been eagerly awaited since last year, and finally has been set for 2nd September 2016.

Albums packaged in mini LP sleeve replicas within a Clamshell Box.

Contain countless Independent Chart top ten entries, both singles and albums.

Way ahead of their time, Alien Sex Fiend's fusion of electronic rhythms, synthesisers, samples and rewired, carefree insanity sincerely warrants rediscovery. In a better world, these albums would still top every chart in the known universe. The band remain active, performing their hybrid blend of psychedelic electro goth-rock to ecstatic crowds at their live shows and stay firmly independent releasing new material via their own 13th Moon Records label.

FIENDS ON TV - TRAILBLAZERS
Sky Arts TV series features ASF


Sky TV (in the UK) has been running a massive 40 part series on SKY ARTS called TRAILBLAZERS highlighting different music scenes and the artists and bands who kick started or were major movers in the various genres. So far the series has covered Glam Rock, Two Tone, Funk, Punk, Prog Rock, Heavy Metal, Electronic Music and so on. In Episode 12, first aired on July 15th, it was the turn of Gothic Rock, featuring yer very own Alien Sex Fiend! Nik Fiend said "The best thing was that Noddy Holder (of Slade) does the voiceovers for the series and I knew of Slade's music since I was a kid, so having him talk about Alien Sex Fiend felt a bit like being knighted!" The series as a whole is very well put together and informative and worth checking out, hopefully it should be repeated at some point in the future.

R.I.P. - ALAN VEGA OF SUICIDE 
Mrs Fiend writes...


Mrs Fiend writes : We were very sad to hear about the passing of Alan Vega on July 16th, we had no idea he was 78, he certainly didn't look or act it! Our world would certainly have been missing an important imgredient without his music, both solo and as part of the band Suicide. He also created sculptures as well as music. Nik and I had met him and Marty Rev, his other half in Suicide, a number of times over the years after shows, the most recent was in 1998 at The Garage (London) which was an amazing night.

Our very first meeting though was just as Alien Sex Fiend was starting up - so that is going back!!! A friend of ours, Derek, was writing for the fanzine "The Next Big Thing". Being big Suicide fans we all went together to see Alan's show at The Venue (London), around the release of his solo album "Collision Drive". We met up to do an interview and he drew us a picture of his cat Frankie Ray Teardrop labelling it "Pour mes amis" ("for my friends" in French) which we still have and a copy of it was used in the fanzine along with the interview (see pic on right).

Even earlier, I saw one of Suicide's famous support slots on tour with The Clash in '78 in Cardiff - the audience got really wound up by Suicide's music - all they wanted was punk, punk, punk - and that wasn't helped AT ALL by Alan sporting a pinky-purple lurex jacket and bow tie (!), such was his ever confrontational attitude!!

The world has lost another non-conformist and a true artist and is the poorer for it... We send our condolences to his wife Liz, their son Dante, and Marty Rev.

NIK AND MRS FIEND WRITE.....
Wot we've been doing....


Wot izzzzz going on wiv Alien Sex Fiend????????
Number One - and most importantly - we are still here.

Sorry we've been seemingly out of circulation for a while but it's been one of those "transitional" periods that we seem to have from time to time!.... there's been all sorts going on though and some of it you can see below... we're always doing "something" connected with ASF - (Gave your life to it - "Get Into It") - whether it's creating music or art or things that fall into the general category of "admin", and there's now 34 years of "Alien Sex Fiend" (eek!) to look after - like advising on last year's 4 CD Box Set, and there's a follow-up new Box Set (Volume 2) coming along in June which needed even more input from us!

Yes there's been shit to deal with but - to put it into perspective - so many have passed on in recent times (see R.I.P. below) whereas we are still here. We also moved offices and had a good ol' clear out... in the process we've uncovered some goodies - like some last copies of the Death Trip Vinyl LP which have now been passed onto Blue Crumb Truck. Talking of which, Blue Crumb Truck has all changed too - except for Liz who is still at the helm - there's now a brand new store system. It was a mammoth task to move the store, Liz needed assistance to meet the imposed deadline, so we helped out with the look, sourcing images, making various suggestions (ooh er!)

Nik and Mrs Fiend of Alien Sex Fiend

Number Two - Ta daaa ! (trumpet blast)... we are working on new material!! Yes! We're working on some new songs with Doc Milton and Mat "Pod" Rowlands... we got back together with both of them in 2012 for the live shows and they've been with us ever since, we had great times and lots o fun on t'road so we set up an initial recording session to see what could happen, and IT did, and so IT will continue... Album???.....EP???? ......erm????? We don't know yet, we can't rush the process, we've gotta get away from outside stimuli and allow IT to unfold in IT's own way... so IT even surprises us, that's part of IT. There's nothin' worse than predictable / formulaic music / "music by committee" - Noooooo!

IGGY AND HIS FIENDS
A blast from the past, backstage at Brixton Academy, London


Nik and Mrs Fiend write : We've been trying to get our hands on copies of these photos ever since they were taken backstage after Iggy Pop's show in 1986!! At last we've got one of 'em - yaaay! 30 years later!! Not quite to the day - but near enough... Our mate, Kevin Armstrong (producer of Acid Bath album, also played on and produced some of the Another Planet album) was playing guitar in Iggy's band at the time. (You may have seen Kev on Top Of The Pops (UK pop TV show) with Ig sporting an Alien Sex Fiend logo T-shirt!) He brought Iggy along to the studio in Shepherd's Bush, London where we were recording the "It" album.... Ig was bouncing about while we heard the playback of "Buggin' Me" - he loved my keyboard sound (thanks, Ig! Mrs F) and he also visited our flat in Brixton.... later we went to his Academy gig and met up backstage and that's when this photo (and a load of others) was snapped....

We've been into Iggy, with and without The Stooges from around 1976... so we were chuffed to bits to meet up with him. Check out his BBC Radio 6 show - cos he plays some good weird shit and he's a great character- and as he would say "heh heh heh"....

YOUTH - MUSIC PRODUCERS AWARD
We gave him his start as a producer, y'know!


Youth Nik and Mrs Fiend write : We were really pleased to hear that our ol' mate Youth (of Killing Joke) was awarded with the "Outstanding Contribution Award" by the Music Producers Guild in the UK recently. It's high time that Youth got such recognition after 33 years of endeavours! His first ever production job was in 1983 on the very 1st Alien Sex Fiend single "Ignore The Machine" - yep we gave him his start! - followed by the album "Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?", later the singles "Hurricane Fighter Plane", "Haunted House" and "Inferno". Although you won't read about this in most of the media - cos when the press are listing achievements, names such as David Gilmour (Youth produced Pink Floyd's "Endless River" album) and Paul McCartney (Beatles) tend to take precedence - ho ho ho! But we know that Youth himsef has acknowledged us many times - cheers and our congratulations!

BBC MUSIC QUIZ : HOW GOTH ARE YOU?
- Just for fun


The BBC were running a music quiz "How Goth Are You?" to coincide with the Whitby Goth Weekend and it included a question about our own Nik Fiend! Although it was last month the quiz is still there, so have a go, it's just for fun!

QUIZ : HOW GOTH ARE YOU?

The page says :
".... This weekend is Whitby Goth Weekend, a celebration of all things macabre and spooky, here's a quiz to sort the weekemd goths from the true believers; a way of siftng, if you will, Dracula from Not-feratu."

Scroll down and click on the "Play" bar.

By the way, you will be pleased to know that Nik and Mrs Fiend managed a combined score of 9 out of 10, so they are classed by the quiz as "very goth indeed" and it suggests that they should go along to the Whitby Goth Weekend. That's a relief because they have headlined at the WGW twice!! The last time was in 2012 when you may remember that Nik and Mrs Fiend were presented with a very special 30th Anniversary cake especially created for the occasion by Choccywoccydoodah.

R.I.P.
Those we have lost...


Nick Marsh

Nick Marsh in
Flesh For Lulu days

James Kyllo

James Kyllo from
Cherry Red Records

Dale Griffin

Dale Griffin in
Mott The Hoople days

Nik and Mrs Fiend write : A number of famous faces and some lesser known ones have passed away recently and we'd like to take this opportunity to pay our respects to several of them. Some have had a lot written about them in the media already and photos abound, so instead we will concentrate here on our personal links....

You may not know that David Bowie was an ASF fan, he also mentioned us in interviews and chatted to Nik on the phone, one time his voice was recorded on our old telephone answering machine... we kept it and included it on our cover version of his song "All The Madman" (for Cleopatra Records "Goth Oddity" CD)...

Prince's "Sign O' The Times" and "The Black Album" (yep, we had THAT bootleg tape!) especially the track "Bob George" were particular faves, we also played at the famous venue 1st Avenue in Minneapolis on a US tour....

Howard Marks too , what can you say? - Mrs F being a Welsh girl....

And Lemmy of Motorhead, what a character - we shared some good times such as when he visited us backstage after one of our shows at the Hammersmith Palais (London) and helped finish off the beers.... !!!

Nick Marsh aka Nick Flesh, singer and guitarist with Flesh For Lulu, sadly passed away last year...we first met back in ye olde days of The Batcave club in London o'course, but we encountered Nick - usually along with Rocco (guitarist from the band) - many times over the years at various other watering-holes... our thoughts go out to his wife Kat and children....

James Kyllo - ex Creation Records, ex PopTones, and most recently of digital label Zebralution, unexpectedly passed last November. He looked after us in his role as General Manager at Cherry Red Records/Anagram during the latter 1980s, covering the "Here Cum Germs" album , the Dynamic Duo "Batman" single, through to the "Another Planet" album . In later years we would meet up with him from time to time for a chin-wag, he was a lovely fella.and a stauch supporter of the Brentford Football Team...

Lastly, a mention to Dale "Buffin" Griffin, founder member and drummer of Mott The Hoople, who passed away this January. Post-Hoople he went into production and was the producer of our second BBC Radio 1 John Peel session, which included the song "Boneshaker Baby" ( B-side of our 11" E.S.T. single). At long last, that session, along with the 1st Peel session, was released as bonus tracks on the first 4 CD Box Set...

We would like to pass our belated condolences onto all of their families, friends and colleagues.....

Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain DLP

Photo showing front of album, inner of gatefold sleeve
and coloured vinyl discs

Alien Sex Fiend's legendary ground-breaking first album "Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?" captured the band's initial burst of psychotic energy. Gothic cross-rhythms, mutant surf guitar lines and stabbed keyboard pulses created a primal electro-goth that it was possible to dance to, all topped off with Nik Fiend's unique Ziggy-from-the-crypt vocals. Produced by ace knob twiddler Youth (of Killing Joke fame) (see below about his award), "Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?" includes the indie chart hit singles "Ignore The Machine" and "Lips Can't Go". Two bonus live cuts - "New Christian Music" and "Crazee" - have been added to the original LP to create this deluxe limited edition re-issue of 12 slices of pure Batcave era Alien Sex Fiend anthems.

The riveting lysergic "Acid Bath" is Alien Sex Fiend's second studio album. Originally released in 1984, it showed the band moving further into strange and spine tingling song structures. A firm fan favourite, this classic ASF album has been re-issued with the addition of 3 bonus tracks to create an 11 track limited edition deluxe double vinyl edition. Features the Indie Top 10 singles "E.S.T. (Trip To The Moon)" and "Dead And Buried", which are different versions to the Single tracks that were released earlier in '84, as is the version of "Attack". The bonus tracks include a live version of "I Am A Product", the rare "30 Second Coma" and "Boneshaker Baby", a popular highlight at live shows to this day.

Message from Liz of Blue Crumb Truck
Great News! The all-new Blue Crumb Truck store has recently opened! It has been re-built from the ground up with a new store system and many new features. It is now mobile friendly and even has its own little skull favicon! (The icon on the browser bar). No that everything is running smoothly, I intend to re-stock some of the "old favourites" and there will be some further new merchandise soon.

EXISTING CUSTOMERS and SUBSCRIBERS
I have now contacted all existing Customers from the old BCT store and all Newsletter Subscribers so if you have not heard from me, then please double check your email! In brief, I have been advised against transferring the old accounts to the new system for security reasons, but you can easily Create An Account when you next make a purchase (you must make a purchase first, you cannot Create An Account otherwise). There is an option to Create An Account when you have completed the Checkout process.
