Dawn’s Dark Music Corner: Glass Android

Seattle Sounds-New Years Day- By Dawn Wood

logoIn 2011, Glass Android took form from founder, Tony Spring and his best friend, collaborator, Casey Kunning. Influences included: Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Puscifer, The Birthday Massacre, Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels. Glass Android played several shows as a duo, in the Seattle area.  Since that time, Glass Android has merged into a collaboration of local musical talent, merging with members from Murder Weapons (female vox) and the synth mastery from members of Grasp Logic and XY Beautiful (all bands featured in Horror Addicts.) Asher Vast, of Endless Sunder recorded, mixed and produced the Glass Android release: “Killing Me”.

Glass Android 288BW (1)Mi-kel Munzter from Grasp Logic is currently working with Tony on revamping/remixing some of the 2012 material and working on new songs as well.  Mi-Kel’s fresh Industrial/Dub-step influences will prove an exciting new approach for the Glass Android catalog.
Tony is also a photographer in the Seattle area with such bands under his belt as: My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Lacuna Coil and The Crystal Method, just to name a few.

Dawn’s Dark Music Corner: My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult- Philadelphia PA and Seattle, WA 2014

My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult’s long-awaited new release was unleashed in May 2014, followed by a steady 6 week tour of the United States. I was fortunate to catch their show in Philadelphia and my band opened for them in Seattle. The last Thrill Kill show I caught was in Seattle in 2012 and this new tour was a bit scaled down, lighter and warmly funky. Their support tour opener, DJ Toxic Rainbow, sets the mood for a dancier version of TKK. (DJ Toxic Rainbow won the THRILL KILL KULT “Kooler Than Jesus” remix contest, and has since done various remix work for the band and Groovie’s side-project DARLING KANDIE.) Amongst old TKK favorites: a remixed version of “Swine and Roses”, a fun call and response to “My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult” and my personal favorite “After the Flesh” from “The Crow” Soundtrack.

The new CD is the band’s 13th certainly versatile enough to be played at any club. The influence of 70’s electro music and some spaghetti western-esque guitars grace the collection of music. My personal favorites being: “Neon Diva”, “Hell Kat Klub” and “The Way We Live Now”. The current lineup of My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult is: Groovie Mann, Buzz McCoy, Mimi Star, Justin Thyme and Westin Halvorson. The band has progressed with an assortment of members over the past 25 years. Taken directly from the biography on the Official Thrill KillKult Website:

It was in the fall of 1987, in a neighborhood Chicago bar. Artist and performer Franke Nardiello met with newly transplanted Bostonian musician Marston Daley over drinks. They crafted a shocking and lurid film concept, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT. Inspired by a shared love of tabloid tales of sex, kitschy horror and exploitation films in the style of Russ Myers, the concept came naturally. The name was ripped straight from a British headline Nardiello had noted while living in London. With limited experience and resources the film was scrapped, but work on its accompanying soundtrack continued. Legendary Chicago record label Wax Trax! Records were drawn by the hard beats, distorted vocals, rich instruments and bizarre film samples. They released a three song EP in 1988. The full–length album, I SEE GOOD SPIRITS AND I SEE BAD SPIRITS, followed the same year. People seemed to love it almost instantly, and so, their dreams of celluloid became a reality on vinyl.

In the spring of 1989, Nardiello and Daley took on the names Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy (respectfully). They recruited band members from bar stools and created a back-up group of singers/dancers dubbed the BOMB GANG GIRLZ. They jammed the crew of nine into a van with musical and stage gear alike, and hit the road. The tour had a “Cabaret From Hell” vibe and it aroused the curiosity of the kids and media, establishing THRILL KILL KULT as one of America’s premier industrial/electro acts.

They continued to fuel the underground club dance floors with tracks like “The Days Of Swine And Roses”, “Kooler Than Jesus” and “A Daisy Chain 4 Satan”. The Parents Music Resource studio album entitled: “Spooky Tricks” It is fun, interesting and Center (PMRC) was appalled. It wasn’t long before Groovie and Buzz started experimenting, combining disco bass with wah-wah guitars and dabbling in big bad burlesque brass. The result was SEXPLOSION! (1991). It was lusty and dangerous, giving them their first taste of commercial success with “Sex On Wheelz” and attracting a whole new set of fans.

The explosion of popularity found TKK on Interscope and in 1993 they released 13 ABOVE THE NIGHT. Like all of their releases, it had an overpowering cinematic quality so it wasn’t surprising when Hollywood took notice. The duo found themselves writing for an assortment of soundtracks like Paul Verhoeven’s “Showgirls” and Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World.” They even stepped in front of the camera for a cameo in the cult classic “The Crow” to perform the song “After The Flesh”.

In 1998 MLWTTKK signed to Rykodisc, who reissued their Wax Trax! catalog. And later, GAY, BLACK & MARRIED (2005), an homage to the 70’s disco era, and the depraved strip-lounge-rock fest, FILTHIEST SHOW IN TOWN (2007).

They have released 2 albums on their own label, SLEAZEBOX MUSIC, as well as a BOMB GANG GIRLZ cd titled A TASTE 4 TROUBLE, written and produced by Buzz McCoy. It features the formidable long time vocalist and dancer Jacky Blacque, with a guest appearance by Groovie Mann.

Still a favorite among directors who are looking for sexy sleaze, their music is frequently in both major and independent films and television, most recently in Sexy Evil Genius (Lionsgate) But it doesn’t end in with the studio, film and tv, Groovie and Buzz still take the KULT out on tour extensively along with a rotating cast of depraved characters. In 2010 they re-created their role in the “Sextacy Ball” tour along with Belgium’s outrageous Lords of Acid. In 2011 they performed at the “Wax Trax! Retrospectacle” show in Chicago, with old label mates Front 242 and Revolting Cocks. And the fall of 2012, the KULT celecrates their milestone 25th anniversary with a 7 week tour of the States.

MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT continue to morph and stretch the fabric of music as we know it, always remaining true to the KULT and true innovators.

Dawn’s Dark Music Corner: Murder Weapons


meganphotojessecoreyThe sound of Murder Weapons has been described as Shock-Rock Horror Industrial.Samples from actual trials of serial killers, horror flicks and other auditory terrors are amply delivered by this quintet, punctuating the tracks with bloody CHEESE. Live shows feature a “SPLASH ZONE” of blood and various body parts. Audiences have become accustomed this Murder Therapy, featuring gory visuals, simulated murders and blood splattered cage dancers. Amidst the scene of chaos, gore and murder the band churns out a barrage of guitar driven, hard hitting, rhythmic, aggressive, electronic industrial audio terror for your delight!

Murder Weapons began in 2012 when founder Jesse RazOrr begun writing music based on a fascination with serial killers, horror films, and the finer things in life. Not surprisingly, the music was dark and aggressive. Jesse began forming the band with keyboardist, Luke Guillotine , drummer Lynn Shank and guitarist, Gorey Clawhammer. All that was needed was a vocalist. In summer of 2012, Murder Weapons was offered the opportunity to open for a national act in Seattle. Seattle rock-electronic vocalist, Dawn WoodKill, joined the Family and rehearsal commenced. By December, Murder Weapons was opening for major Industrial acts such as My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Angel Spit, Angels on Acid, Psyclon 9, Charlie Drown and Hanzel und Gretyl, as well as co-headlining Seattle’s Mechafest later that year. Currently, Murder Weapons is working on new material as well as a studio album and is obliterating the Northwest regularly. The next live show in Seattle will feature Murder Weapons, once again, opening for My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult.

Top 10 Old-School Goth Songs

Old-school goth… ah… the words send shivers up my spine. For any of you who were in the goth scene in the 80’s & 90’s this music holds a special place in your hearts. Clubs with beds plush with red velvet and chains hanging from the ceiling. Industrial light shows mixed with digitized voices and leather. Men in long skirts and bigger hair than the girls. The next morning raccoon eyes from forgetting to remove your layers of black eyeliner. Some of us still live in this world and the music of that time cannot be forgotten. Some people instantly think of the more popular tracks from bands like The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Concrete Blonde, Ministry. Others take the lesser known road… Type O Negative, Christian Death, Rosetta Stone. Whatever your old school goth road may be, we want to know. What are your favorite old-school goth songs?

Here are my top ten, never to be forgotten (by me at least), old-school goth songs. For those of you who were there – enjoy. For those of you who missed it, you’ve got some listening to do, baby.

  1. Vampire’s Cry by Nosferatu – Sometimes I hear that whisper in my dreams.
  2. Sugar Babies by P. Vampire – I recently had to rip this from the CD because I can’t find it anywhere to download – what a loss to the community! LOVE this song about a creepy arsonist man watching suburban ballet girls dance – and then burning them up! Morbid, yes, but this song makes it so fun to listen to. 
    “They’re all burned up and their mommies are sad… Sugarbabies.
    The man in the wall gets away in a cab… Sugarbabies.
    The teacher’s on fire, she’s beyond recognition… Sugarbabies.
    Itty bitty femurs all shriveled up like raisins… Sugarbabies.”
    I’ve posted the lyrics here in hopes of waking the dead. P. Vampire, if you’re out there, I love you! Email me!
  3. Paint it Black by Mephisto Walz – An anthem I guess for our generation as this goth band remakes the 1966 song by the The Rolling Stones.
  4. Chain by Switchblade Symphony – Just beautiful.
  5. Iron Helix by Xorcist – Wakes the mutated robot-alien inside me.
  6. Severina – The Mission UK – This has a special place in my heart because I found it after I wrote Severina, my character from Night’s Knights. She is such a strong and beautiful woman and this song appeals to the spiritual side of her when Markham and Julien leave her alone at the castle in England. She sort of goes crazy being alone, but this leads to the challenge to create the perfect vampire.

  7. The Days of Swine and Roses by My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult – “Christians, Zombies, Vampires!” This is me and my husband’s song.
  8. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by The Damned – “Welcome to the underworld… Two for the price of one.” I love this video because it’s in the vampire heyday. I saw them in the 90’s and they were much older – but still had that great sound and a sexy new devilgirl guitarist. Worth the wait!
  9. Deception by Cruxshadows – Love the hair! Something about this song gets under my skin and makes me feel dirty. Analyse that!
  10. Test My Reaction by Spahn Ranch – Love this song because it’s just goofy. This is my happy goth song. Not sure why there is no video, but I found the audio on their MySpace page. People still go there?

Here are some suggestions from our other staff members:

Dawn Wood I love anything by The Cure, Siouxsie, Depeche Mode, the Smiths, New Order. Those are my old goth song standbys.

Dan Shaurette Shakespeare’s Sister “Stay”, Bauhaus “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”, and Siouxsie and the Banshees “Peek-a-boo”, Inkkubus Sukkubus “Heart of Lilith” and just about everything on that album.
