"Hey, Cocksmoker. Eat a bag of dicks."

by Chris Randall

Since we were discussing stage banter not a week ago, I suppose this article in the AV Club is relevant. But more importantly, it gives me the opportunity to post something with a title like "Hey, Cocksmoker. Eat a bag of dicks." How's that for NSFW? Plus it looks funny in the Zicos list next to all the press releases that OSXrecording poop out, saying shit like "Multi-Platinum Recording Artist T.I. Adds ICON to Echo Recording Studios." Eat a back of dicks, cocksmoker. The only people that care are T.I. and Digidesign.

In any case, this article, other than the Josh Homme section, doesn't have much bearing on what we were talking about, but there's some funny shit in there. Or sad, depending on your point of view. The Venom thing has obviously been making the rounds for many years now (I think I first heard it around '95 or so) as has the Paul Stanly one. (Am I the only person in the world that hates KISS? I _really_ hate 'em.)

Kiss are a bunch of Republican drag queens. Never liked them, not even when I was 9 years old and in love with all things explosive. The songs sucked out loud, and Peter Chris is the shittiest drummer ever set to tape.

I kind of like the Vinnie Vincent Invasion, though.

Nah, you're not the only one. I can't stand Kiss either.

thank you for this. i can smell the hollywood, FL sportatorium. i'm 13 again.

kiss sucks.. not in a primus kind of way.

Only thing Kiss even remotely has going for them is that the Melvins opened for them a few times.

I'm surprised anyone can stand KISS. Although I find Shannon Tweed and the fading humanity of her face rather intriguing.

I'm glad I'm not alone. It seems there's a high proportion of KISS lovers in the music industry, and for what reason I can't tell. My idea of hell is having to listen to KISS play theremins for all eternity.

i met a guy who was a tech/roady/stage manager type and he worked on lot's of big tours including a few long stints w/kiss. he trashed them every chance he got and talked about how ridiculous it was to rig up fire shooting explosions to ace freeley's guitar. i'm sure he appreciated the gig but he experienced more kiss shows than anyone should have to suffer through.

My favourite stage banter was from Robyn Hitchcock. He was playing Toronto around 88-89 the same night as Def Leppard was in town.

"So I hear Def Leppard is playing down the street at Maple Leaf Gardens...Def Leppard...too bad that fucker didn't lose his other arm."

You can't go wrong with:

Black is the night, metal we fight
Power amps set to explode
Energy screams, magic and dreams
Satan records the first note.
We chime the bell, chaos and hell
Metal for maniacs pure.
Fast melting steel, fortune on wheels
Brain haemorrhage is the cure
lay down your soul to the gods rock `n' roll
