SNAKE EYES AND SISSIES

POR­TRAIT OF AN AMER­I­CAN FAM­ILY (1994) Not enough re­ally early stuff in Manson’s sets these days. And, yeah, you could have Lunch­box, but that doesn’t have quite as filthy a riff as this. It’s rougher around the edges than the more vel­vetgloved ma­te­rial he’d later write, but for sheer ni­hilis­tic rock’n’roll thrust, this is an un­der­rated cracker.

MISTER SU­PER­STAR

AN­TICHRIST SU­PER­STAR (1996) It’s one of the key mo­ments from An­tichrist Su­per­star, so it’s odd that this sneer­ing, lusty bit of sleaze rarely makes it on to a set list. Not only does it have a killer, slinky riff, but en masse shout­ing of ‘I’ll kill you if I can’t have you’ could only be loads of fun, right? And that’s why we’re all here…

1996

AN­TICHRIST SU­PER­STAR (1996) Was it some­one say­ing this banger’s ‘An­tipeo­ple, now you’ve gone too far’ line in an Alan Par­tridge voice to Manson’s face, rob­bing it of its venom, that sent it off into re­tire­ment? Prob­a­bly not, but he should play it if only so we can sing along in such a man­ner. A-ha!

THE LONG HARD ROAD OUT OF HELL

SPAWN OST (1997) Do we mean the for­got­ten gem from the Spawn sound­track, or Manson do­ing a read­ing from his lurid 1998 au­to­bi­og­ra­phy? Take your pick. If you plump for the lat­ter, you’ll get to hear him tell funny sto­ries about vomit fights with Nine Inch Nails and go­ing to a zoo on acid. LOL!

I DON’T LIKE THE DRUGS

(BUT THE DRUGS LIKE ME) ME­CHAN­I­CAL AN­I­MALS (1998) You hadn’t no­ticed Mazza had stopped play­ing this, had you? He’s been do­ing a bit of it, the tease, but this Me­chan­i­cal An­i­mals high­light in its full, greased-up, hip-swing­ing glory hasn’t been aired for years. Get some back­ing singers and bust it out!
