...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. “[I]Hey Frankenstein/What’s on your mind?[/I]” 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]I don’t want to meet your mum and dad/Unless you let me fuck your mum and dress your dad up in drag[/I]” 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?
