My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult
In the fall of 1987, artist/performer Groovie Mann and musician Buzz McCoy met one night in a seedy Chicago neighborhood bar. Discovering they shared a common love for tabloid tales of sex and Satan, kitschy horror flicks, and trashy exploitation films, the boys started conjuring up the plot for their own B-movie to be titled MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT. Yet without much video experience and limited access to equipment, they soon scratched their dreams of celluloid, but continued working on what was to be the project's accompanying soundtrack. Chicago's renowned Wax Trax Records - home to bands like Ministry, Front 242, and KMFDM - were intrigued by the duo's experimental mixture of combining dance rhythms, movie dialogue, dark instrumentation and distorted vocals. In 1988 they released their first LP, the ominous and foreboding I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits. Realizing their scrapped film idea was now considered a "band", Groovie and Buzz hastily recruited some of their nightclub friends - musically inclined or not - and hit the road in the summer of 1989, which quickly established THRILL KILL KULT as one of America's premier "industrial/goth/rock" dance acts.
With their third album Sexplosion (1991), the group mixed up their sound to include pumping bass-lines and a raunchy horn section. The album spawned the chart–topping alternative radio hit "Sex On Wheelz", and soon the major labels came knocking! The band signed to a fledgling Interscope Records later that year and oddly enough found themselves back in the world of film, writing music for an array of major and cult oriented movies such as "Showgirls", "The Flintstones", "Cool World", "Sliver" and "The Crow" - in which the band also performs, making their silver screen debut!
Two decades later, TKK continues to challenge today's alternative music scene (as well as the PMRC) with their unique style and attitude. Each album is very different from the previous, as the band likes to "stir it up", creating a potent cocktail of what can only be described as "industrial-disco-punk-glam-sleaze-rock"! They have been credited for directly influencing a broad spectrum of contemporary bands from Marilyn Manson to the Scissor Sisters. They have released 13 albums and dozens of singles over their timely career, all the while touring non-stop with their revolving entourage of musicians, performance artists and vivacious back-up singers known as THE BOMB GANG GIRLZ.
My Enemy Complete
From the filth of Baltimore Chitin bring a mix of industrial, metal and hardcore punk they label themselves as anti-core. Started in 2012 by frontman lot3k and bassist dusty lux then later joined by nimrod on drums and takk on guitar chitin has been growing in the baltimore scene show by show.
Releasing two cds (too human and void) they are currently working on their third release titled g0d_c0mpl3x for release early next year.
Fun Never Starts
"From a life changing, face denting motorcycle accident, inspired by other people's trash and discarded hope, a new genre of anxiety based music was born called toiletwave.
Driven by throaty crooning, floating over distorted beats, trashed tones, and menacingly playful melodies, multi-instrumentalist and singer Jenny "Good Enough" lays out sarcastic commentary for the world. Where there’s always a pill to fix the symptoms but not the cause, Fun Never Starts reminds you that it's OK to dance to it."
