2018: June 6th
I have long loved My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, up to and including their masterpiece, Confessions of a Knife. After that... not so much. I've tried since high school to get into 13 Above the Night and never really cared for it. Likewise, I will periodically check in on one of the later records, usually to no effect. The other night though, I pulled 13 out after not hearing it for years and gave it a whirl and actually kind of dug a lot of it. It's no Confessions; doesn't hold a candle to any of their older stuff at all. But, I think I'm finally starting to hear what those who have recommended it to me for years hear... or I'm getting soft in my old age. Either way, a few more truncated listens and I grabbed Death Threat from Apple Music yesterday morning and listened to it twice in a row. Again, not the same vibe as the old stuff, but it fit my mood at the time, and it didn't seem so terribly far off from the Thrill Kill Kult that I love, all Satan and Sex and Drugs and SATAN!!!
Foxxxy Rockit is probably my favorite track so far, hence it leading off the post this morning.
