'Sleaze' returns to Camden's Lockside Lounge
The stars of London's most gorgeously filthy night discuss their idols
From its beginnings in late 2011, it was clear that ‘Sleaze’, at Camden’s Lockside Lounge, was a bit special. Conceived by supersmart shock merchant Mat Fraser and saucepot Trixie Malicious – joined by DJ Hit Man Hearn and drag hellion Miss Cairo – in tribute to New York’s down-and-dirty alt-burlesque scene, its deliciously scuzzy mix of go-go dancing, games, fun, art, smut, satire and tits soon found an appreciative audience.
‘Sleaze’ returns for a new year looking stronger than ever: February’s line-up, including Jonny Woo and Fancy Chance, might be its best yet, and it’s now free to boot! In anticipation, we asked the crew to fill us in on the figures who influenced them to become the happy filth merchants we know and love.
