The Fascinators




The Fascinators are a Glam-y, Punk-y hard rock/metal band based in London, we've in the past described ourselves as "Thrash Cabaret" as we take equal influence from classic rock and metal bands as we do from Cabaret, Drag and Burlesque performers.

We have one EP out already, with another close to being finished, as well as another batch of songs currently only in Demo form that we're keen to work on more. In the past we have also learnt a wealth of cover versions as we have performed as musical backing for various Burlesque and Drag performers.

Our long time drummer left us last month (on good terms I should add) and we are looking for a new, full time, committed and versatile drummer to fill those shoes! DEP/session players need not apply, nor hobbyists/bedroom players. And while we're at it; racists, misogynists, homophobic and transphobic people need not apply either.

If you're interested please e-mail us at tstt.fascinators@
