British rockers Cradle Of Filth laugh at fans who copy their gothic image and wear dark make-up in public, because there is a time and place for the "corpse look".

Frontman MARTIN POWELL doesn't mind giving cosmetic advice to fans, but he admits even the heavy metal band don't champion the gothic image all the time.

He says, "You have to blend so you avoid the panda-eye look.

"It's one thing looking like a t*t onstage but walking around town? No.

"I feel sorry for the fans to be honest. The grief they must get."
