Creaming Jesus were a London based UK Gothic/Rock band, and the first band to mix thrash metal guitars with the Gothic genre, blurring the lines between the two styles.
Formed in 1987, their original line up was Andy (vocals) Lil (vocals) Tally (bass) Roy (drums) Lindy (drums)and Paul (guitar), their original sound was a wall of percussive noise (two drummers and a drum machine) Slayer type thrash metal guitars and screamed vocals.
Lil left after their third gig, and now runs Household Name Records, a London Punk/Hardcore Label, and All Ages Records in Camden, London.
The band's first release was a track on the House of Dolls fanzine covermounted 7" single. They then self released the 12" EP Nailed Up For Nothing, before being signed to Jungle Records of London UK, who re released the EP and put them in the studio to record the following two EPs, Mug and Bark (which included a thrashy cover version of the Cure's 'A Forest')
Guitarist Paul Scanlan left following the release of their first 3 12" EPs, and played guitar in Satanic metal band Akercocke before leaving in 2003.
The group then recruited Richard and Mario as guitarists, and Des replaced Lindy on drums, to produce their most enduring line up.
