Rico







Float(Chrysalis)









As a fully paid-up hollow-eyed, sex-bored androgyne in combat trousers, you probably already know the drill with Rico. Like in those perfume adverts where a woman in a cocktail dress slaps a bloke in a polo neck with a Japanese fan and the dialogue is:





"I worship you."





"Yes, but I will betray and degrade you, you fool."





...everything is all a bit theatrically sinister. It's paranoid. It's dark. The city lies. And funnily enough, it all sounds a bit like Peter Gabriel. He's heavily involved with the Millennium Dome, you know.
