Pop duo sought for Vampiric hook-up

Patrick Wolf has told The Quietus that he's been trying to track down the Transylvanian pop sisters the Cheeky Girls to contribute vocals to a track about the sharped-toothed creatures of their homeland.

"I once asked AQA who should I duet with next, and they said 'Patrick Wolf would benefit in his career by duetting with the Cheeky Girls'," Patrick told us yesterday. "A friend of mine was a PA for Mama Cheeky once, so I think there's connections there. I'm on the hunt for the Cheeky Girls."

Asked what form the collaboration might take place should he be able to find the Girls in their Sussex bolthole, Wolf told us that, "I've been exploring a lot of Dracular mythology, not sixth form goth project, but things like Vlad the Impaler and the history of it, and I really wanted to do a Transylvanian-themed section on Bachelor.

"Dracula and vampires were great to illustrate the idea of addiction, the idea that when you're bitten by this thing you're addicted to blood. I thought it was a metaphor for a great many things. So I was thinking of getting the Cheeky Girls in to do some spoken-word Transylvanian on it."
