For several decades Marquis De Sade were the epitome of the British cult Metal band…highly respected but quite elusive. Now, however, the band is about to make an unexpected comeback.
Formed in the south of London around 1979, Marquis De Sade remained active for about three years. The line-up back then consisted of Kriss Gordelier on vocals, Kriss’ brother Pete Gordelier on bass, San Remo on keyboards, Gary ‘Gazza’ Pope on drums and Gary’s brother Kevin on guitars. Together they crafted some amazing material.
Sadly Kevin passed away quite recently and his shoes have been filled by Pauly Gordelier (brother of Kriss and Pete) while keyboard maestro Giles ‘Doc’ Holland has replaced San Remo.
This is probably the first interview the band has given in over 40 years. As one might imagine, it’s quite a revealing one!
