Weird fictions. Strange places. Lesbian vampires.

Anthony Fielding: aural alchemy, legal advice, reasonable suggestions.

Rik Rawling: art, design, unreasonable demands.

The Sinister Insult was founded in winter 2008 by musician Anthony Fielding and writer Martin Jones with the intention of harnessing guitarist Oliver Tomlinson’s home-recorded loops. After the creation of a few songs, a deeper purpose was discovered within the pages of artist/writer Rik Rawling’s unpublished true crime manuscript The Hangman’s Breakfast.

And so The Sinister Insult now choose to exist in an England made up of forgotten murders, silent woods, dust-choked schoolhouses and cold mansions. Come with us as the sun sets a primal red and the voluptuous figures of female vampires dance high atop the hill…

Ghost of a Hurt, the first Sinister Insult project, is now available. The second Sinister Insult project – concerning madness and murder in 1970s London – is ongoing during 2010-11. In the meantime, there are other releases planned, amongst them a spoken word CD and the debut recording by TSI’s sister band, Kathy Crowned From Blood…
