wet is a lament to love, giving advice on how to remove those stubborn heartbreak stains. The endless trickling of spit and salt, a walk through rainfall ‘on stage’ and an erotic but traumatised text all seek to survive a journey through blood, sweat and tears.
From 1995-2000 I was a regular act at the club Duckie, Royal Vauxhall Tavern, including the pilot Big Girl's Blouse, as well as their offshoot club nights, Duckie Dancehall and Artskool, Connaught Rooms, London. I was also invited to host and perform at a variety of other benefits and clubs, including the Lux, London; LIFT club; Brighton Pride Arts Festival; Lesbian & Gay Switchboard’s 25th Birthday Benefit, Her Majesty’s Theatre, London; Candy Bar, London; and Manchester's Mardi Gras. With Sef Townsend, I also performed in a singing double act, The Purslips, at various magnificent venues, such as Hollywood Leather (live art club) and the Stamford Hill Jewish Day Centre.
