Murderdolls : Dead In Hollywood

...this is preposterous, tacky and horribly entertaining...

A tad late for Halloween, admittedly, but Slipknot chump Joey Jordison's glam-metal side project deserve a mention here purely for 'Dead In Hollywood''s deathless opening couplet. "Hey Frankenstein/What's on your mind?" wail these bondage-goth scarecrows like the missing link between Motley Crue and Marilyn Manson- Marilyn Manson. Better still is the B-side 'Let's Fuck', an astonishingly rudimentary thrash with someone shouting "I don't want to meet your mum and dad/Unless you let me fuck your mum and dress your dad up in drag" over the top. Ho ho. Like a spandex 'n' stack heeled Sunset Strip take on those shonky old '50s monster movies, this is preposterous, tacky and horribly entertaining. But are we laughing with them or at them?
