"Although Alien Sex Fiend emerged via England’s early-’80s Batcave movement, the group was hardly typical of the era’s gothic genre. From its 1983 debut, “Ignore the Machine,” ASF established a unique sound, melding ghoulish frontman Nik Fiend’s (Wade) creepy Cockney-accented ravings to the pulsing cosmic keyboards of his consort, Mrs. Fiend; Johnny Ha-Ha’s drums are integrated with a burbling rhythm box, while Yaxi High-rizer spins off primitive Link Wray-via-the-Cramps guitar. Neither did they fit into the decadent glam image propagated by Specimen: theatrical enough to be their own horror movie, Nik’s Herman Munster/Alice Cooper synthesis is an original and enjoyable musical persona.
Undisturbed by mainstream trends, the Fiends have made a long, lunatic career out of a comic-book aesthetic and their own hallucinogenic strain of humor; through an untold number of releases, the only thing they ever seem to take seriously is having a freaky old time." - TROUSER PRESS
