vi subversa - what a life

It is with huge sadness that we must pass on the news
that Lance d’Boyle has died - 16 January 2017.

Vi Subversa Poison Girls

Lance was a founder member and drummer with Poison Girls
from 1977 through to 1985. As well as his musical contributions he produced four
editions of ‘The Impossible Dream’ art/collage/photomontage magazine.
His importance to Poison Girls and Xntrix Records were immense.
He will be greatly missed by all his family and many friends.
Let the beat go on.

An Appeal

We are mourning the loss of Gary Robins, better known as Lance d'Boyle, the founding drummer with Poison Girls, our friend and companion for 45 years.

For the last 26 years, Gary has been scratching a meagre living as an artist in a remote part of the Sierra Nevada, high up the mountains of rural Granada in Spain.

In February last year, Gary's life-long friend and soulmate Frances, Vi Subversa, passed away, leaving him devastated. Before she passed, Gary came over to England to see her for the last time, and during this visit he was the victim of a credit card snatch that left him in debt for thousands of pounds, and without any means of support apart from his basic pension and the proceeds of a few pieces of art. The credit bank have refused his case for compensation and in fact have charged substantial interest on the original amount.

In light of this fact, we are launching this urgent appeal to raise funds for Gary's funeral costs and to clear his debts. Please head over to the Poison Girls downloads page, where you are free to download whatever you like, and donate what you can.

Thank you.


Everybody has their price
