This week on Necromancy Radio, I spoke with front man Jacques Saph from the Helsinki death rock band, Virgin in Veil. Jacques is the true Renaissance man – I say this because not only is he the co-writer and vocalist for the band, but also a multi-instrumentalist, philanthropist and his societal views on vegansim and anti-fascism are revealed in this interview. You may know him as the founder of Sleeping Children from Paris and other projects Secular Plague and Masquerade.

Jacques was born and raised in the city of Paris and for 25 years this was his home. Self taught on the guitar, he was originally inspired by the Sex Pistols and The Cure, knowing he would one day, with hard work, play and travel the world writing songs and performing on stage.

After meeting his wife Suzi Sabotage and without ever having visited Finland before, he moved to Helsinki in the Summer of 2014, fell in love and the rest is history. Formed in 2015, Virgin in Veil was as a result of meeting their drummer William as he was living in Helsinki, as he was half french, half Finnish and literally speaking the same language, Jacques quickly started writing music with him as the first member. Suzi Sabotage who later joined the band, is the backing vocalist and synth player. Virgin in Veil are a notable act on the death rock circuit, having toured heavily with almost 40 shows under their belt in Europe, Russia, LA and Mexico, they play amongst 210 bands over 4 days at this years Wave Gotik Treffen next weekend on Friday June 2.

Current line-up:

Jacques Saph: Vocals/Bass
Suzi Sabotage: Synth/Backing Vocals
Rudy Soininen: Guitar
William Freyermuth: Drums

The unofficial return of Gothropology as the pilot episode of Bitchcraft features a unique perspective on parenting from a real-life Morticia Addams: Jennifer Minter. From raising children in a loving environment and cultivating trust instead of pressure, maintaining her own identity through raising tiny ones, finding love on an AOL chat room, still kinda being in the broom closet (definitely being in the PTA), and the magick that's weaved the tapestry of her life. Pictured with her is Troll Meister and the smallest witchlet.

This weekend I interviewed Eyajo December Joseph from LA Deathrock outfit Black Heroin Gallery. Eyajo’s career spans over 25 years in the early years with a band known as The Baby Dolls, then after meeting Daniel Ian became co-songwriter and keyboardist for the Astrovamps from 1991-2007. First and foremost a poet, self-taught guitarist, illustrator, magazine creator and editor and now vocalist for Black Heroin Gallery, he’s a very busy man. However, he still took the time to chat with me over 2 hours of conversation about his life growing up in Lafayette, Indiana, getting a one way ticket to Los Angeles, forming a band, learning to play just like John Taylor and being a self-confessed Duran Duran fan. Eyajo’s southern charm is definitely addictive. He was so easy to talk to, we laughed a lot and even though my interviews generally span over one hour, this week we have 2 hours split over 2 episodes – Part One & Part 2.

Black Heroin Gallery now is a 3 piece being Eyajo (Vocals), Tony F Corpse (Drums) and Curtis aka Kris Fantom (Guitar). They’ve been rehearsing to release a second album and to start preparing for some live shows. I believe next year possibly getting a slot at WGT as well. The music is definitely reminiscent of Sex Gang Children, Ausgang and dare I say Cinema Strange. The eerie nature of this storytelling in Eyajo’s lyrics is also combined with a garage guitar sound that also eludes to even metal in parts. Released on German record label ‘Alice in…’ the band’s success was assisted by Frank D’Angelo as Ejayo’s first band, The Astrovamps, were first were signed and that relationship continued with his new band Black Heroin Gallery. Alice in… are also responsible for releasing other artists like William Faith, Monica Richards, Corpus Delicti, Bloody Dead & Sexy and Suspiria to name a few.

Eyajo is also the editor in chief for the magazine Pestilent Windfolk. This is a new publication that has been in circulation since Issue 1, Winter (USA) 2016. This is what drew me to the band initially as good friend Victoria Fashen had a copy and I just had to own it. It’s an epic 88 page black and white glossy magazine containing artwork, 14 interviews with underground post-punk, deathrock and artists from around the world. It’s a dying art, the production of magazines and as we discuss it the interview, Eyajo is not about to start compromising the content by releasing it more than once a year. For now. Issue 2 is already in production – watch this space!
