Five artists have come, and now five artists are gone. It has been a good time, but we must continue. As we do such, we come to this week’s featured artist, White Zombie. This is, as should be pretty evident, another call back to Nineties me. Now, to be clear, I am focusing on just White Zombie this week. I will not be getting into Rob Zombie’s solo career. I have no major qualms with his solo career, I just didn’t find it as engaging as White Zombie the band. Plus, I’ve heard Living Dead Girl way too many times in my life already.
I will be listening to their two studio albums: La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1 (1992) and Astrocreep 200: Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head (1995). In addition to those, I have two remix albums that I’ll be listening to: Night Crawlers: The KMFDM Remixes (1992) and Supersexy Swingin’ Sounds (1996). There are some random tracks from the movie soundtracks to The Crow: City of Angels, Escape from L.A. and Airheads, as well as some compilation appearances on The Beavis and Butt-head Experience and Nativity in Black: A Tribute to Black Sabbath that I’ll also have in the mix.
I find it interesting that this is the third band out of six to have a track on the Crow: City of Angels soundtrack. However, this will be the last artist off of that soundtrack to get featured. Not to ruin the surprise, but a Korn week is not in the future. We may see an artist or two off of the earlier Crow soundtrack, but I’ll leave that to mystery.
I am predicting an uptick in posts this week. White Zombie actually brings up a lot of memories for me, and I’ll be sharing them with you because, well, that;s kind of the point of this autobiographical musical journey. They are the first such band to this point to have a lot of bits of my life tied to them, but definitely not the last.
So enjoy, as we explore a band whose main lyric has always been “Yeeeeeeeah!” This should be an interesting week.
