Cradle of Filth: Astoria, London

Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 18 December 2000

Lock up your daughters and pets — because the Filth don't shrink from wearing "I Love Satan" T-shirts at the Vatican (they got arrested) or from telling Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, at the Kerrang! magazine awards, that her column is rubbish.
