Audra: Going To The Theatre

Cocteau Twins meet Bauhaus meet Joy Division meet Shadow Project. High concept by Poppy Z Brite. Androgyne twin brothers who outline their bones in lipstick by Urban Decay. Funereal keyboards. Sepulchral guitar tones. Fillet of soul-searching. Cigarette props in action. Enough arch campness to overwhelm Peter Murphy. Antique Victorian boys-dressed-as-girls cover photography. Going To The Theatre would make a great SNL skit a la the old "Goth Talk" were the Helms not so impressively, lyrically, tragically, beautiful, talented; were the lyrics not dark, sardonic and fun as label mate Voltaire's stuff. More fun than passing out in a burned out gothic cathedral full of too much Chartreuse as beautiful boys and girls traipse by in psychedelic ripples of lace, magic and clove ciggie smoke...a must.
