MARILYN MANSON : KIDDIE GRINDER [1995]

Τις προάλλες ένα ακόμα δικαστήριο απάλλαξε τον Marilyn Manson από κατηγορίες “σεξουαλικής κακοποίησης” : ο δικηγόρος της καταγγέλλουσας Ashley Morgan Smithline, αποσύρθηκε απ’ την υπόθεση, η εν λόγω δεν κατάφερε να βρει αντικαταστάτη του. Το γιατί συνέβη αυτό είναι anybody’s guess. Ως προς την όλη υπόθεση [μπαράζ καταγγελιών], εκτυλισσόμενη μήνες τώρα, το να αναπαραγάγει κανείς τις λεπτομέρειές της είναι ακόμα πιο πληκτικό απ’ το να τις διαβάσει. Δεδομένου του ότι έχω κάνει το δεύτερο, “αρνούμαι” να κάνω το πρώτο.
Κάποιος με στοιχειώδη ιδέα των [σεξουαλικών] ηθών του “σατανιστικού” περιβάλλοντος του MM, δεν θα καταδεχόταν όχι να γελάσει, αλλά ούτε να σηκώσει το φρύδι.
Εν πάση περιπτώσει, ακούμε ένα τραγούδι από το πρώτο EP του Manson,
Smells Like Children, κυκλοφορημένο το 1995. Είχε ξεσηκώσει, εύλογα, ένα πρώτο “τσουνάμι” αντιδράσεων από τους συντηρητικούς κύκλους της εποχής, θέτοντας τα θεμέλια για μια επιτυχημένη καριέρα.

Another court acquitted
Marilyn Manson of “sexual abuse” charges the other day : the complainant Ashley Morgan Smithline’s lawyer withdrew from the case, and she was unable to find his replacement. Why this has happened is anybody’s guess. As for the whole case [a barrage of accusations] going on for months now, reproducing the details is even more boring than reading about them. Since I have done the second, I “refuse” to do the first.
Someone with a rudimentary idea of the [sexual] customs of the “Satanist” MM environment, would not deign to laugh, or even raise an eyebrow.
Anyway, we hear a song from Manson’s first EP
Smells Like Children, released in 1995. It had, understandably, aroused a first “tsunami” of reactions from the conservative circles of the time, laying the foundation for a successful career.

I am the face of piss and shit and sugar
I do a crooked little dance with my funny little monkey
What I want what I want is just your children
I hate what I have become to escape what I hated being
Calliopenis envy from your daddy
You’re not gonna hear what he don’t want to hear
What I say disgusts him
He wants to be me and that scares him
“Let’s do a funny little dance with my funny little monkey”
The black keys
Actually, he loves you
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
I wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
Here is my real head
Come along, kiddie winkies!
They try to blink me not to think me
Don’t want to bring me out
I am the rotten teeth my fists are lined with suckers
My prison skins an eyesore-mirror-sketch-pad
I am your son
Your dad
You fag
I am your fad
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
I wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
Here is my real head
Here we are, children! Come and get your lollipops!
I have to take your voice and and stick my fingers in it
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
I wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
Here is my real head
I wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
Here is my real head
I have to take your voice and and stick my fingers in it
Fuck fuck!
Here is my real head
Here is my real head
Here is my real head

    That was fab.
    Lol…. and all the Beatles had to do to cause a “tsunami” of reactions was comb their hair forward and make bangs.
    Then there was the “Jesus” comment, taken out of context. It caused a record burning. books, then music. What will they burn next?
    They’d probably like to burn Marilyn Manson…….. but …….
