So what did the lippy one do? He scribbled down his phonein full view of all the acolytes and guest list junkies crowding him, and told me to call him. The following week — Is pete burns gay cancelling a face-to-face sit down at the last minute — Pete called back and gave me close to two hours of the most hilarious and incisive anecdotes. So here, at long last, is the first 20 minutes of our exceptionally entertaining exchange, left as charmingly unedited as possible.
It seems that the last thing anybody wants me to do is promote a record, they just want me to actually promote myself. SP : Well, this is interesting. This is one of the points I wanted to raise with you, actually, because Siouxsie Sioux recently said that her image always gave people the opinion that The Banshees were all about veneer. Do you think your visual image overshadows the music? Obviously you do. PB : Define to me how you would classify veneer. We got to do a give and take here.
How would you classify the veneer thing? Anybody that who was dark and slightly broody is something that they think is intimidating. I seem to intimidate people even more than Marilyn Manson, and I guess that is because people see him as some sort of pantomime character.
It put Stock Aitken Waterman on the map for one thing, and for better or worse they did come up with some very good records. We opened the flood gates on those things. We did two albums with them and we put them on the map. And Pete Waterman is the actual first to actually acknowledge that, at us. And we brought that sound into mainstream. I would have thought because it sold so many and it was No. When it was initially promoted to radio we were told that this.
So we did a little bit of investigation and we found out her record company, Warners, had actually been servicing that record to the radio stations. DOA mash-up. So we gave an OK to do a mix with more of me on. Not with us! You know, regardless of that I do have a very hardcore fan base and that can exist without chart status and I can exist on a very good level without chart status. SP : Exactly.
I mean, Kylie and Robbie Williams? Probably a better singer too. Just slap a CD on!
SP : I totally agree with you, Pete. I know, but I believed it at first. And I was happy in that delusion. I was very very happy in that delusion. PB : Completely.
And nobody approached us; they just went ahead and did it and it was fucking rude. I just think that any excuse would be used. I mean, I also was about to go on another TV show last week. PB : Yeah, well what am I supposed to say? What was I supposed to say? I was on Blue Peter twice.
Things are just going to be one great big production of The Sound Of Music from now on. And it does affect your record company towards you, it does. He certainly was, though, in the early days of Culture Club. But no, that was a sin, that was a crime.
People do want you to remain a certain way. I get asked this constant question. SP : Would it be fair to say that your mannerisms and performance have, over the years, become more theatrical and maybe feminine too. PB : Yeah, absolutely. I may play with ambiguity in certain ways because it amuses me, but nothing has become more theatrical. In my heat of performances when I was working out in Japan with budgets that suited what I wanted to do, I did really big, big productions with costumes falling out of the ceiling and lifts bringing me up out of the floor.
And I really did it on a big time level, you know. Nobody in this country has seen me at my best, seeing me do what I want to do in the kind of show I want to present to the public. PB : Because, the live work is a hard Is pete burns gay to do. You cannot go in for four weeks with a technical crew because the budget would be completely eaten up.
You have spare microphones in case your microphone explodes. You have a monitor assistant, you have all of these things just going into the technical production. But I so enjoyed doing that G-A-Y gig. Follow Us —. Books Live Screen. Get In Touch [ protected] .
