Any Type O Negative fans out there?

Just got the new Type O Negative album, "Life is Killing Me"

If you're not a fan, skip this post.

As they do a funny cover song on every album, I was pretty excited to see which song they would butcher this time. And, lord was I suprised... "Angry Itch," from the amazing Hedwig.

Now this is histerical. Has anyone seen Peter Steele in Playgirl, back in the early '90s? Angry inch, heh. More like angry yard.

That is awesome. I can't wait to hear the new CD.

I did see the playgirl, and also saw the band live shortly there after. They did a great cover of Cinammon Girl, by Neil Young.

Pete's a card
While I don't count myself as a major Type-O fan, I heard Pete Steele doing an interview on Eddie Trunk's show a few months ago. He's a great personality. I almost pissed myself, what a funny bastard! I may be iffy on his music but I'll listen to his interviews anytime. The intelligent and articulate rockers are few enough.

My brother's ex-band was managed by their manager, so they got to play L'Amours a bit... all kinds of weird 6 degrees stuff btwn me and the band.

Thier roots are in a band named Carnivore, who did a really good cover of Hendrix's Manic Depression during the 80's, Carnivore somehow morphed into Type O Negative, and the progression is easy to hear, the first Type O album sounds just like Carnivore (especially "Unsuccessfully Coping With the Natural Beauty of Infidelity" on Slow, Deep, and Hard.

Talented, they're kinda metal, kinda darkwave, but all progressive in thier own way. I always loved thier stuff. Time to add this to the "must buy" list (which only has one album as I ran out of "must buys" because I got them all ;)

"Everyone I Love is Dead..."

*grin* Have I proven my fanhood?

I have a wicked old (from 1997 or so) tape of Type 0, actually. I was a bouncer in a dry Mpls goth club for a few of their shows. Good stuff. I must find some now.
