Lynks – aka Brett Elliot – has been causing a special kind of havoc for a couple of years now, the self-proclaimed ‘drag monster’ (occasionally backed by their Lynks Shower Gels) releasing a series of catchy as fuck in-yr-face queercore anthems and tongue-in-cheek provocations that have been getting a lot of attention all over. Imagine Leigh Bowery fronting Fischer Spooner or something equally, gloriously demented. Just check out the video for Everyone’s Hot (& I’m Not) and you’ll get the idea (does it remind anyone else of My Vag by Awkwafina?).

And now they’re heading out on the DIY Now & Next Tour, topping the bill for the magazine’s new talent tour that takes in six dates, one of which stops off at Newcastle’s Cluny on Friday 24th February alongside Glaswegian post-punks Vlure and Circe.

Reports suggest that the Lynks live performance is something to behold, so if you fancy some banging eighties-tinged synth pop, irony-drenched queer lyrics and delicious costumes, you know where to be.

Lynks, Vlure and Circe play The Cluny, Newcastle on Friday 24th February.
