Fratellis man forms band with burlesque performer

Jon Fratelli is a member of Codeine Breakfast Club

Jon Fratelli of The Fratellis is working on a new musical project called The Codeine Breakfast Club with a Glasgow-based burlesque performer.

The frontman is working with Lou Hickey, who sings and performs at the same Glasgow burlesque night, Club Noir, where his wife Heather dances under the name Chelsea Dagger.

Hickey, who is signed to Island Records as a solo performer, had been writing songs with Fratelli when he asked her to join a new band at the start of the year, reports the Daily Record.


Jon is my friend and because his wife is my friend, it has been great,” said Hickey. “He is very grounded and we are both level-headed.”

The Codeine Breakfast Club have a MySpace page,, but they have not yet posted any songs on it yet.
