My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult

Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242, Ministry and KMFDM, TKK (as often abbreviated), helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

Curse Mackey

A shadow figure of the illicit industrial/ darkwave underground. Noted for his prominent participation in Pigface, and on- going stints with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and past projects Evil Mothers and Grim Faeries. Curse Mackey's debut solo album is a charismatic trailblazer that merges doom, ambient, industrial, post-punk and EBM in an extremely well-produced and surrealistic fashion.
