Dressed To Depress

Posted on February 12, 2008

“The money from this show is going right back to my family and friends… I’m gonna buy my parents a house…. a house of COCAINE!” Last night, the Murderdolls took over London burlesque club Madam Jo Jos for a special one hour set at midnight for just 180 people. As well as some red & black attired Murderdolls fans, glamorous transvestites, Soil’s Shaun Glass & Tim King, Prodigy/Flint’s Keith Flint, and Casey Chaos from Amen were in attendance! The “dolls” were certainly on top form… all fetchingly dressed in full drag. Wednesday was sporting a bright pink wig with mirrored shades, a nurses red cross arm cuff, cap, a thigh-high split leather skirt and some rather shredded white tights… which he actually found in the gutter outside his hotel that morning! Why he was in the gutter in the first place, we didn’t ask. If he washed those tights before he wore them, we also didn’t ask. Eric was clad in a tight-fitting black minidress, blonde bombshell wig, and knee high boots, completing the look with fishnets and suspenders. He was later heard after the show, distraught he’d broken his suspender belt. Ben, aka The Ghoul, made his own outfit, creating a white dress with ‘SLUT’ emblazoned across the chest, and a voluminous blue wig – complete with sparkly bits. By the end of the set, the dress was long gone, and Ghoul left the stage clad only in stockings and a PVC thong. Acey dressed to kill in a snug leopard print miniskirt, showing off his legs with co-ordinating red leopard print tights, and a stunning turquoise blue wig. Last but certainly not least, Joey became a glamorous long-haired redhead for the night taking the stage in a teeny green minidress, and seamed fishnets. The night marked the very first ever live performance of forthcoming Murderdolls single ‘White Wedding’, a cover of Billy Idol’s 80’s classic (out July 14th). Not only that, the band treated the audience to some new material including ‘Murder Pie’, ‘I Take Drugs’, and ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’. And with Wednesday declaring, “We know a bunch of songs by people other than ourselves, and we’re just drunk enough to play them…” the band also launched into an awesome cover of the Misfit’s tune ‘Devil’s Whore House’. The full set list was: Murder Pie Kill Ms. America Die My Bride I Take Drugs Dressed To Depress Twist My Sister Slit My Wrist Love At 1st Fright The Devil Made Me Do It People Hate Me Lets Fuck White Wedding (Billy Idol cover) Devil’s Whore House (Misfits cover) 197666 I Love To Say Fuck Dead In Hollywood Wait til you see our photos….
