BY_RATFINK & PETE McKENNA
Once Upon A Fiend is the roller-coaster story of one young punk's wild rock n' roll dream becoming reality. Enter one Andy Wilson, who escaped the leafy, picturesque Lancashire village of Lytham to become Ratfink in his gothic music idols Alien Sex Fiend.
As both drummer and guitarist with The Fiends', he toured the world, faced death threats and became immersed in the crazy, bloody Hammer horror theatre that was Alien Sex Fiend.
The joys of his baby daughter being born and the emotional trauma of his disintegrating marriage, as he strived to keep both music and home life together, are all vividly captured. Andy Wilson, alias alter-ego Ratfink, stars in this emotional, humerous, sad and visual rock opera that gives an unforgettable insight into the joy and dispair of living the rock n' roll dream.
If you thought that gothic music started with Alice Cooper and ended with Marilyn Manson then it's time to think again.
