Originally a trio of madrigal singers comprising KellyMcCusker, Donna McKevitt and main vocalist Katharine Blake.

Miranda Sex Garden are a band formed in London, UK, in 1990, currently on an extended hiatus. Originally a trio of madrigal singers comprising KellyMcCusker, Donna McKevitt and main vocalist Katharine Blake. The first album, “Madra”, was entirely a cappella, with the songs all based ontraditional English medieval verse. For their second release, the mini album “Iris”, the sound evolved into a blend of their madrigal-styled vocals withsounds reminiscent of gothic rock, darkwave, ethereal wave and industrial music. It was at this point the band line up expanded to include BenGolomstock and Trevor Sharpe providing percussion, drums, guitars and organs.

The band line up stayed stable for the release of the next album, named after a Dario Argento film - “Suspiria”, which is where the bands full soundwas realized . A spin off band - “the waltzing maggots” were gigging around this time, taking their name from the bizarre tracks “Widdle Biddle and hiswaltzing maggot”, and “Willie Biddle in his watery Grave”.

Around the time of their third album, “Fairytales of Slavery”, they said they wanted to create music that evoked a “seductive garden of earthlydelights, full of color and chaos”, and Kelly McCusker left the band. For the release of the “Peepshow” single the band actually played naked in thewindow of one of the main record stores in London with the windows blocked out apart from a peephole apparently.
