The Great Goth 'N' Roll Swindle?

Where bands of other cities had such visionaries as Malcom Mclaren and Tony Wilson. Coventry's Deadfilmstar had Pete Waterman..
Undeterred and finding sanctuary in the back pages of Metal magazine 'Kerrang', Deadfilmstar fought hard to survive in an already oversaturated market. Ultimately they needed a way out and the unsuspecting world of Goth and all thing's Industrial had left it's back door wide open. 

To date, Deadfilmstar have toured the UK with Mortiis and KMFDM, appeared at Bloodstock Open Air and Whitby Gothic Festival's, shared many a stage with Combichrist and Toyah Willcox , played main support to legendary cult Gothic bands Christian Death and Sex Gang Children.and have an upcoming date with the electro -industrial heavyweights Orgy.
