That My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult has toured with everyone from Siouxsie and the Banshees and EMF to Marilyn Manson and Lords of Acid says much for both the band's longevity (27 years and counting) and its genre-defying sense of sonic wanderlust, melding throbbing industrial rock with sample-heavy electronic dance and dirty disco, all laden with goth-friendly occult and B-movie imagery. TKK boasts a lengthy list of ludicrously stage-named former members (including Sinderella Pussy, Arena Rock and Skip Towne) that makes Spinal Tap appear believable by comparison. Yet the core duo of Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy have stayed true to certain signature cornerstones over 10 studio albums: sleazy (often spoken) lyrics, big beats, insistent riffs, ominous electro backdrops and abrasive volume.
