Jay "Rocky" Dead has also created an ever evolving clothing range of his own designs and collaborations with other artists at http://ylhcsd.bigcartel.com/
YOU LOVE HER COZ SHE’S DEAD has now started to collaborate with other vocalists, most recently with Mia Mort, who moved to the UK on her own at the age of 16 to leave behind the madness and memories of the countries she grew up in. Mia Mort defines herself as a free soul suffering from identity crisis, spending her time in London modelling for award winning shows & interning for luxury brands but found it very unfair using her designs with no trace of credit for her work. In her own words, she described her life as "turned around" when Marc Waterman (ASH/ELASTICA) introduced her to Jay.
They hit The Blue Studios with Marc Waterman in June 2014 to record vocals for the latest track forthcoming from YOU LOVE HER COZ SHE’S DEAD, 'Crystal Deth', currently being completed in New Jersey (US) again, by SVVVGE BEVUTY.
