DIY art band Homosexual Death Drive release ‘Sunshine’ EP
Holly Combe // 5 November 2014
Established in 2010 in East London, DIY art punk band Homosexual Death Drive are Charlotte Cooper and Kay Isgay, two self-described fat, feminist, older, queer punks who produce music, objects, videos, performances, discomfort, feelings and memories, invoking “the death drive, obscenity and the anti-social”.
Their new EP ‘Sunshine’ is now available to buy from Bandcamp, with the following three tracks:
‘Sunshine’: an up-tempo song of abuse, survival and ambivalence
‘Theme’: an anti-social chant about rabbits and heteronormativity
‘Dead’: a queer hymn of death and living.
Homosexual Death Drive’s Facebook page for celebrating the official launch of ‘Sunshine’ on 22 November has details of a competition for fans to join Charlotte and Kay on a day trip:
To mark this historic occasion we are offering a lucky winner and up to two of their friends the opportunity to come on an exclusive Homosexual Death Drive with us in Kay’s fabulous Nissan Micra. We will take you to an excellent mystery location on 22 November. Entering the competition is easy, simply click the link and fill in the form. The winner will be announced on 15 November.
You can find out more about Homosexual Death Drive and what they’re all about in this excellent interview from Charlotte Richardson Andrews.

They are outdoors and a swimming pool can just about be made out behind them. They are overlaid with the word ‘Sunshine’ in joined up orange letters, while ‘Homosexual Death Drive’ is written in yellow capitals at the top centre of the page, with a skull underneath. Lightning bolts shoot from both the words and the skull.
