Post-punk outfit The Wake has announced they will release a new long-play, entitled “Perfumes and Fripperies”. A fixture in the early - to mid-90s goth rock scene, The Wake are re-emerging with a new offering, almost 25 years since their last full-length album.

Paul Roland with Mick Crossley - Grimmer Than Grimm

Paul Roland is an interesting case. An eclectic songwriter and performer, that transcends categorization as his music dwells between psychedelia, baroque, pop, folk, gothic, rock… you name it. Far too often inspired by classic literature, horror stories, the occult and paranormal, he does so, not in light “theatrical” way, despite his music having great atmosphere and theatricality. A person who’s explored and written about the paranormal and an author himself, he has a certain authority on the matter.

Model Spotlight of the Month

When and how did you decide to deal with modeling?
A: When I was 18 I was in a photography class at school and was often used as the subject due to the way I dressed. After i graduated school I decided to see if I could do it “for real” since I loved having an outlet to display all of my outfits I couldn’t wear in “normal” life.
What defines a sexy woman according to you?

I’m a model and writer living on a canal boat just outside of London, though I travel the world wherever photoshoots take me! I’ve modelled everything from lace body harnesses and designer lingerie to full rubber suits and studded leather creations.
