‘O’ from Undercover Slut has kindly agreed to tell us a bit about his great band, which to me is a delight to see live in action (go to youtube and check, or better, go see them live if they happen to be playing near you! – soon in Paris - ).

Introduction by themselves:
UNDERCOVER SLUT (A.K.A. UCS) was painfully conceived shortly before Y2K by Europe's most hated/wanted/extremely high paranoid individual/psychotic manic depressive/obsessive/compulsive/control freak/notorious groupie magnet/renaissance man/agent provocateur extraordinaire/workaholic/controversial lead vocalist/lyricist/mentor: 'O' (A.K.A. "letter number thief-teen"), later joined by Divine (guitars), Drag (bass) & Kraze (drums) in Paris Le Trash, fucked-up France.
Unpure, unsafe & untamed being the best way to describe UNDERCOVER motherfuckin' SLUT politically incorrect lyrical content& white noise assault on international masses...
Decadence & integrity
Hybrid but uncompromised...
Superficial while being subliminal...
A real violent cross between 21st Century technology, '77 punk rock nostalgia, Creepy & spooky industrial sounds and a dirty fuckin' glamorous image.
Their website is: http://www.undercoverslut.com/main.htm. Pay a visit, it’s worth it.
'O' - The Dolls and the Pistols are the Godfathers of a thousand nihilistic make-up bands, UNDERCOVER SLUT being one of 'em. I am also one of their numerous bastard spiritual children. My main goal is to reach as many people as possible without compromising a single thing.
'O' - I saw the Pistols at
'O' - Let's just say that I respect "animals" as much as I disrespect "humans". Everyone should support the A.L.F.! www.animalliberationfront.com “Animals” never fuck with you, “humans” do!
'O' - Parisian streets are graced by dogs' shite and arrogant assholes. Welcome to the city of love! Frenchies think they know everything, most of 'em are just fuckin' retards, full of themselves, pathetic arrogants without attitude, rebels without a cause, the list is endless. I've been verbally insulted and physically attacked since I'm 10. I got beaten up a lot, and I learnt how to beat the shit out of people too. There’s a lot of violence inside and outside…
'O' - Most labels are dead or dyin', which is not a bad thing since most of 'em were run by liars and thieves. I don’t trust a lot of people in this business. OFFENSIVE RECORDS is in fact our own label. How can you not be satisfied with your own structure?
'O' - The main thing is we usually don't share the same vision. They rarely get fired, most of the time, they decide to leave, then it's "good riddance!" for me.
Of course, most of the time, when they're not in the band anymore, they realize the pussy’s not that good anymore (if any), and they start to behave like cryin' babies, talkin' shit about me or UNDERCOVER SLUT, but that's fine. It's essential to have a smear campaign against you, its called promotion!
‘O’ - Played with 'em in
'O' - I honestly don't think it's the T&A that got us banned, especially with elephant tape on those breasts. I just think that the graphic reality of "animal" cruelty is way too much to handle for most people. It's obviously OK to hunt 'em, torture 'em, kill 'em, genocide 'em the Hitler/Stalin way, but absolutely not OK to show what's going on. We are living in a very hypocritical society, censorship is everywhere, not only on TV, Internet's fucked-up too. Big brother rules the internet!
'O' - Dean is blessed by a third eye, he sees things we don't. Fuckin' genius and a very nice soul too!
'O' - Started pre-production with another
'O' - Saw Hanoi live in
'O' - That song title is such an offensive statement nowadays, it has been banned from several internet links already. Weird since it’s absolutely not a hateful song, comes from “L’Etranger” by Camus, stupid censorship as always, uneducated people trying to educate others, fuckin’ pathetic! Won’t make it on “AMERIKKKA MACHT FREI” though, since I cannot afford Robert a new Jaguar.
'O' - It’s all about A.N.S. really. Wait for those lyrics, see what’s up and judge for yourself.
'O' - Marilyn Manson’s ex introduced me to Matt while we were recording at the Chop Shop. Regarding Eric, I knew him way before Murderdolls, when he first moved to
'O' - Not finished yet, still updating it on a weekly basis. No outside help. It's all about the UNDERCOVER SLUT mystique since day one. Already found a publisher for its European release. That book is a bomb!
'O' - Free spirits, rebels WITH a cause, eccentrics with attitude, pariahs, underdogs mainly.
'O' - You’ve just asked it. (aw..)
THANK YOU ‘O’! COME TO FUCKING
