FILM: The Crying Game
The most mysterious member of the band, not much is known about Abby, even when he/she was born, the doctors weren't sure whether he/she was a boy or a girl. His/her parents couldn't stand the uncertainty and disappeared soon after, Young Abby was raised by his/her grandmother, Lola, who encouraged the young Abby to sing and play Classical music, and to dress like a boy/girl.
A ferociously determined creature, Abby refused to languish in poverty forever, and took off to work in some highly insalubrious settings where his/her Bowie-esque androgynous looks and dulcet tones were much admired.
