Andy Sex Gang (2006)

Andi Sex Gang (born Andreas McElligott[1]) is the founder, vocalist and main songwriter of the band Sex Gang Children who were a prominent act in the gothic rock movement of the 1980s. His band played once at the infamous Batcave club.[2][3] He has also recorded as an experimental solo artist.

McElligot lived in London squats before entering music and was involved in leftist activism. He formed the band in 1982.[4] In the late 1980s, McElligot obtained the rights to the material he had released with the band and controls its licensing. Over the years he had a number of conflicts with a number of record companies.[5]

In 2011, a documentary, Bastard Art, by Vince Corkadel presented an overview of his career.[5]
