Marilyn Manson Wins Case Vs. Ex-Bandmate (BILLBOARD)

Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) and bandmate Madonna Wayne Gacy (Stephen Bier) have resolved a key issue in a federal copyright infringement suit filed in April against former band member Scott Putesky (, May 13).

Putesky and the Empire Musicwerks label have agreed to remove artwork and images on the album "Lunch Boxes & Choklit Cows" that are similar to copyrighted art by Manson, according to Putesky's attorney, Richard Wolfe. The set is a collection of tracks cut by Manson's early band the Spooky Kids.

Retailers will be able to sell off copies of the album bearing the offending artwork; the artwork will be changed on future pressings. Film footage featuring an animated rendering of the art will be deleted from the limited-edition DVD that accompanies some copies of the album.

However, other issues in the action remain undecided. Jeffrey Light, one of Manson's attorneys, says that contrary to a press release issued by a public relations firm on behalf of Putesky and Empire, the suit has not been settled. Light says the plaintiffs will seek compensatory and punitive damages and attorney's fees.

Magazines Interview Skold & Ginger...

You may have noticed a couple magazine articles on newstands this past month featuring Tim Skold and Ginger Fish. Here are some of the highlights of the interviews:
Tim Skold in Bass Player...
What Challenges have you experienced playing with an artist like Manson?
"Manson is really good at coming up with loose musical concepts that are not necessarily well defined. He is not a very technical musician; he is a very gifted musician. Sometimes he explains things really strangely, and that is where my lack of understanding of the English language serves me, because I will actually understand him whereas no one else in the band will. He’ll come up with terms and definitions that are off the wall, and I need to figure out what he means in a musical interpretation."

Ginger Fish in Drummer Magazine...
“I’m pretty confident that there’s not an injury that’s ever going to stop me from playing and being able to do my job. Unless Manson decides that the next album is going to be a death metal album with full-on double bass throughout, I should be fine.”

MARILYN MANSON, Among 'Craziest' Rockers Of All Time

MARILYN MANSON was included in a list of the "100 most insane moments in rock" released last week by British music magazine Q.

The list, chosen by magazine staff, is an enlightening record of rock 'n' roll's wacky and weird moments, ranging from the bat-biting of Ozzy Osbourne to Michael Jackson conducting a voodoo ritual to fatally curse his enemies, via Elvis Presley's predilection for mounds of jam and peanut butter sandwiches, and Freddie Mercury's offstage sexual thrills.

The Top 10:

01. Keith Moon-countless drug-fueled brawls, a food fight with police in Flint, Michigan and an impromptu fireworks display on a U.S. television show.
02. Prince — proselytizes door-to-door for Jehovah's Witnesses
03. Marilyn Manson — covers fan in meat
04. Michael Jackson — puts curse on Steven Spielberg
05. Elvis Presley — flies 879 miles (1415 kilometers) for peanut butter and bacon sandwiches
06. MAYHEM — Norwegian band's bassist kills guitarist
07. Courtney Love — lies down semi-naked in London street
08. Marion "Suge" Knight — career of oft-jailed rap impresario
09. Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown — troubled marriage
10. Freddie Mercury — QUEEN frontman's backstage antics

Marilyn Manson Faces Swiss Criminal Probe

Marilyn Manson is the target of a criminal inquiry in Zurich, after a religious group made a formal complaint about his stage act. Zurich District Prosecutor Michael Scherrer said today (Dec. 2) that the artist was under investigation for allegedly breaching Swiss law protecting religion as well as making incitements to violence during a concert in the city in February 2001.

His act has made him the target of religious and conservative groups around the world, including the Swiss-based Christians For Truth, which lodged the complaint.

Scherrer said he interviewed Manson ahead of another sellout concert Sunday at a Zurich stadium, part of the artist's ongoing European tour. Christian groups and lawmakers in Zurich had tried unsuccessfully to have the latest concert banned on grounds that Manson's views were offensive to a majority of the population.

The rocker rejected the accusations, Scherrer said. Manson cited artistic freedom and said his act was meant to provoke a debate about violence and religion. Scherrer said he had yet to decide whether to charge Manson.

As previously reported, Manson and company will join Jane's Addiction for five upcoming North American shows, including a New Year's Eve gig in New York.

NY-Roseland Ballroom Show Reviewed in new Rolling Stone...

...For a brief moment onstage, Marilyn Manson appeared vulnerable. "We used to love ourselves/We used to love another," he yelped over the piercing guitar line of "Great Big White World," a slow, eerie ballad that suddenly packed all the emotional wallop of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt." His hangdog expression looked real.
Career middle age may have set in for Manson, but his propensity to shock and awe an audience hasn't waned. His new Grotesk Burlesk Tour was reportedly inspired by German Expressionism and vaudeville. In his pasty white make-up, cropped hair, long black shorts and big-heel boots, Manson came off as a petulant Nazi schoolboy. “Satan worships us motherfuckers!” he announced at the start of “Rock is Dead” before offering to sodomize both the audience and the Lord Almighty. At regular intervals, a troupe of half-naked go-go dancers jumped onto the stage, either offering up suggestive high kicks or, occasionally, licking Manson’s boots.
But musically, things were different. Manson (the band) have always played ambitious and dynamic agro-rock, but they’ve added some new tricks: four percussionists, upright bass, piano, bursts of white noise and even a wailing saxophone. As far as their singer, Manson remains ever the showman. Clad in blackface and Mickey Mouse ears, he appeared alone for the first encore, warbling “It’s a Small World” atop a gigantic podium. Was it a condemnation of corporate fascism? Maybe. Or was it kind of creepy and weird and wrong and funny? Probably, but at least it was honest.

Manson launched his GROTESK BURLESK TOUR 2003 in Brisbane, Australia last Saturday!

...The theatrics were bedazzling, borrowing in part from the German cabaret movement of the 1920's and '30s. The band delivered brutal renditions of Use Your Fist Not Your Mouth, Great Big White World, the tight rhythmic pulse of mOBSCENE and their sinister cover of Tainted Love. Manson understands his teen audience's emotions better than many parents- feelings of isolation, anger, resentment and loneliness. His music is their freedom of expression, and something that should never be discouraged.
credit: the Australian

...Marilyn Manson crafted compelling theatre for fearful times and commanded two hours-plus of extreme and hypnotic performance art last night. It is Manson's high calibre of cabaret that breathes character into each track, using vaudeville flair in mOBSCENE, floating above the stage in Paranoir and gangly extended arms in The Dope Show. Manson knows show business. And that business is all the better for it.

Manson Wins Court Case In Minneapolis!

By a 12-0 vote, a federal jury today cleared Marilyn Manson in a civil lawsuit of liability from assault and battery charges brought against him by a security guard who worked the front row of a Marilyn Manson concert at Minneapolis’ Historic Orpheum Theater. The jury agreed with Manson’s assessment that the contact between him and the security guard was merely part of his elaborate stage show and was neither offensive nor harmful. The security guard alleged that Manson briefly gyrated his pelvis against the security guard’s head.

Manson had this to say: “The path to truth is obscured by frivolous lawsuits, but it’s lit by the objectivity of a jury that sees the difference between entertainment and assault. I feel completely vindicated and I’d like to thank the jury and judge for their thoughtful verdict. I’m excited to be returning to St. Paul on October 16, 2003 and I’d like to thank my fans for their support.”

Manson Toronto Show Review in The Sunday Sun

Manson's Toronto show reveiwed by Chartattack...

Stopping in T.O. in between Ozzfest dates to promote his latest release, The Golden Age Of Grotesque, it seemed a little weird that Manson would be showcasing his act at a place as classy as The Hummingbird Center, but it just goes to show you how times have changed.
Emerging from the dry ice to a castle-like stage set, Manson and crew piledrived their way through a set that was a disenchanted goth kid's dream.
Included throughout the night were new tracks like "This Is The New Shit," "Use Your Fist And Not Your Mouth" and "Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag," as well as the night's show stopper "mOBSCENE," with it's uniformed, scantily clad flapper girls chanting "Be obscene" through the chorus.
Even though Manson played a load of new shit, he didn't short change his old fans either and gave a new make-up job to old tracks like "Beautiful People," "Tainted Love," "Sweet Dreams" and "Dope Show."
Manson also brought a little nudity, a little fun and miraculously managed to grab his crotch more times per song than Michael Jackson would ever have the libido to.
The two creepiest moments came during "Dope Show," when the already lanky Manson busted out fake long arms and pranced around the stage like an elongated freak. From there he proceeded to sing Disney's "It's A Small World After All" wearing Mickey Mouse ears and a Pulp Fiction like bondage mask.
When you see Manson's legions of fans shouting every word he sings, it's clear that he has a spell on folks. From the goths to the now-professional 30-somethings that littered the crowd, Manson had his Toronto fans in the palm of his dirty little hand. And they loved it.

"Ozzfest Still Going Strong"

Theresa Cano
Jul. 3, 2003 12:59 AM

While "The Osbournes" ratings might be slipping, Ozzy Osbourne's metal bonanza known as Ozzfest shows no signs of slowing down as the day-long festival played to a near capacity, devil-horn-pumping crowd Wednesday night at Cricket Pavilion.

Ozzy loyalists as well as more mainstream rock lovers paid top dollar for their chance to see the "Prince of Darkness" along with a stellar collection of acts including Marilyn Manson, Korn, Disturbed and Chevelle.

Not surprisingly, shock rocker Marilyn Manson's set was the most elaborate of the night. Manson who is known for his dark and daring theatrical performances, didn't disappoint fans and gawkers alike with his disturbing blend of eye candy which included a mammoth-sized blowup Manson head complete with Mickey Mouse ears, two erotic dancers and contrasting white make-up and black outfits.

Manson pranced and posed his way around the stage as he performed his new and old angst-ridden anthems included "Beautiful People," "mObscene" and "The Dope Show."

Manson, Ozzfest news on

DALLAS — Ozzy crooned, mooned and squirted his water guns, Disturbed bellowed, and Marilyn Manson vamped it up.
The response that greeted Marilyn Manson, however, easily eclipsed Chevelle's. Sporting a streak of blue makeup across his face and flanked by his bleached blond bandmates, Manson opened with "This Is the New Sh--," and true to his word, even older songs like "The Dope Show" sounded reinvigorated, thanks largely to pouting bassist Tim Skold — who switched to an upright bass for "The Golden Age of Grotesque" — and skillful-as-ever guitarist John 5. While the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams" is still a crowd pleaser, "mOBSCENE" garnered the loudest sing-along as two dancing girls (private parts covered by latex prosthetic versions of, well, private parts) cavorted onstage.

"Manson Banned From Six Flags"

Marilyn Manson has been barred from performing at the August 11th Ozzfest date in Darien Lakes, New York.

Ozzfest begins, Manson talks...

OzzFest 2003 kicks off Saturday [June 28] in San Antonio. This year's festival features mainstage band Marilyn Manson and headliner Ozzy Osbourne.
OzzFest started out as a single show in 1996, and has grown to what has become one of the most successful touring festivals in the United States.
Marilyn Manson talked about the prospect of putting on his show in the daytime this year. "It just turns things into something new. People expect such gloominess and gothic, dark pre-conceptions of what we are, but no one person can limit or describe what I do in any way. That's for the world to enjoy and interpret all on their own levels. And OzzFest, I'm going to make the whole thing my stage."
Marilyn Manson has been banned from Darien Lake, New York's OzzFest this year.
The 31-date tour ends August 28 at West Palm Beach, Florida's Coral Sky Amphitheater.

Manson speaks about acting...

Ahead of his show at London’s Brixton Academy, Marilyn Manson spoke about his desire to make another, more light-hearted foray into the movie world.

Speaking to Xfm Online at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards (where he received the gong for Best Frontman), Manson revealed his desire to continue expanding his acting career.

The singer made his acting debut in Tony Scott's supernatural flick ‘Beat the Devil’ and has also recently appeared in the serial killer movie ‘Party Monster’, but now it appears he may want to lighten the tone somewhat.

“Yeah I’ll be acting again after this tour’s over.” He explained, “I’m not really sure exactly what kind yet, I’ve got a bunch of different things lined up. Definitely nothing musical though. Hopefully it’ll be something comical.”

As for Manson’s gig in London tonight, when asked what fans could expect. The singer explained that it looks like being a pretty low-key affair, saying,

“There’ll be obscenity, foulness, vomiting, screaming, nausea, drug use, er…. Did I mention the naked women? It’ll be a family orientated show. Very pleasant”

Milan show delayed...

Manson had to delay the show at Milan's Mazda Palace on June 7th due to an unexpected throat virus.

Manson's appearance had previously been full of controversy as city officials threatened to pull the plug on the show due to its offensive nature.

MM were due to appear at nearby Monza but were stopped from doing so by the city council, so they changed venue to Milan where the city council protested on grounds of the act being offensive and liable to corrupt the youth audience.

Manson Barred from Six Flags?

Buffalo Park welcomes Ozzy, but not Marilyn
Officials at Six Flags in Darien Lakes, New York, would prefer that when Ozzfest stops at the park on August 11th, Marilyn Manson just stay on the bus.
Invoking a clause in its contract with Ozzfest promoter Clear Channel, the "Six Flags family" "decided to pass" on a performance by Manson, who topped the pop charts last month with his latest album The Golden Age of Grotesque. It was a "management decision," according to a spokeswoman for Six Flags, who also said that it is within the park's rights to "restrict artists from performing" before declining further comment.

"People do acknowledge and recognize me as truly dangerous," Manson told Rolling Stone in response. "I refuse to say that what I do is show business. Only Marilyn Manson, out of Korn, Disturbed and all these other bands, has been considered inappropriate. That's the inability to reconcile art and entertainment."

Manson may have more immediate venue problems on his hands. A concert planned for Milan on Saturday is expected to go on, but the shock-rocker is facing opposition from officials in the Italian city. His roving Grotesque Burlesque show was moved from nearby Monza when the city council there also objected, on the grounds that it was inappropriate for children.

The Darien Lakes stop excepted, Manson will tour with Ozzfest from its kickoff June 28th in San Antonio to its conclusion August 28th in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Do not miss Marilyn Manson this summer!!

Glascow Evening News
The fans almost stole the show when shock rocker Marilyn Manson rolled into Braehead Arena last night.
Most of the 7000 donned outfits more outrageous and bizarre than Manson.
The costumes, with one couple turning up as good and evil, turned the arena into a colourful spectacle. And with most of the fans also sporting gaudy white make-up, it really was a sight to see.
His 75-minute set was drawn predominantly from the current hit album, The Golden Age Of Grotesque, and its 2000 predecessor, Holywood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death). It started in typically controversial manner, with Manson brandishing a sex toy during his first track.
The decadence of 1930s Berlin is the theme of the new album, but musically it owes more to David Bowie's artistic recording high in the German city - the album trilogy of Low, Heroes and Lodger - give or take the odd guitar decibel or 10.
Current hit single Mobscene and old favourites The Beautiful People and Mechanical Animals were the highlights of a set which never flagged from start to finish.
Love him or hate him, Manson remains a striking presence on the rock music scene and shows no signs of slowing down.

Kerrang reports: "Marilyn Manson nudity shocker at Download"

The God of F**k has just walked off stage and managed to shock us all again with ‘naked dancers.’

Two high kicking girl dancers appeared for ‘M-Obscene’ the first single taken off ‘Golden Age Of Grotesque’, and danced in fishnet tights then stripped off to just garter belts! The girls were wearing plastic genitalia and plastic breasts but to a largely under 18 crowd this is bound to be raise controversy for Manson.

The evening’s set was otherwise up to Manson’s usual high standard with brilliant costume changes, simulated sex with a champagne bottle and blistering versions of crowd favourites ‘Tainted Love’ and ‘Beautiful People.’

This Is The New Shit
Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag
Use Your Fist And Not Your Mouth
The Golden Age Of Grotesque
Ka-Boom Ka-Boom
The Bright Young Things
Better Of Two Evils
Obsequy (The Death Of Art)

The album is produced by Marilyn Manson and Tim Skold and mixed by Ben Grosse. The first single will be "mOBSCENE."

Marilyn Manson takes his inspirations from the glamour of 1930s Hollywood, the grotesque of Vaudeville to the extreme height of cabaret decadence and so-called "degenerate" art in Weimar Berlin just before its destruction.

Manson says, "This album is about expression. The imagination and personality of the individual cannot be trapped by small minds or defined by any one person. The genius of art finds sanctuary among children and madmen to survive. That, is who we are."

Marilyn Manson has collaborated with renown artist Gottfried Helnwein for the album's controversial artwork which is part of a greater series that will be exhibited in museums all across the world. For more info check and

The DVD combines nearly two hours of live concert footage, including an onstage duet with Eminem as well as a thirty-minute, Manson-directed documentary film, The Death Parade, which features, among other provocations, a transsexual whipping out her package and peeing into a bucket backstage.

"A World of Horror in Pictures." Marilyn Manson collaborates with legendary artist.

Marilyn Manson and painter Gottfried Helnwein have joined forces to collaborate on a series of creations that are aimed at placing art on the edge, where it belongs. In the tradition of AKTION, the pair intend to have a powerful effect on the bland world of entertainment.

Helnwein's use of taboo subject matter has gained him respect and notoriety worldwide. Museums in NYC, Berlin, Vienna and Zurich are just a few locations where his challenging images have left controversy in their wake. He has worked with Marlena Dietrich and was chosen by Time Magazine to paint JFK on the 20th anniversary of his assassination.

The Simon Wiesenthal Foundation supported his work in Europe and here in Los Angeles, the Museum of Tolerance will be displaying a series of portraits that were vandalized by neo-fascists who labeled them "degenerate art."

His fight for expression and stance against oppression are reasons why Manson chose him as an artistic partner. Check the journal for candid pics and more.

Marilyn Manson Reveals New Lineup

Marilyn Manson moves forward with a dramatic change in style, attitude and personnel by announcing the departure of longtime friend and bassist Twiggy Ramirez.

“I have spent eight months transforming this band and our new songs into an unstoppable juggernaut, and sadly Twiggy wasn’t able to make himself a part of it,” says Manson. “Unfortunately, I feel that Marilyn Manson, as a lifestyle, is not where his heart is. So I have decided to let him go his own way, otherwise it wouldn’t be fair to us, the music, or especially to the fans. Although you can never replace a best friend like Twiggy, this album and new lineup will redefine anyone’s idea of what Marilyn Manson is capable of.”

Marilyn Manson, John 5, M.W. Gacy and Ginger Fish are joined by bassist Tim Skold.
The Golden Age of Grotesque, which is under the production team of Manson, Skold and Ben Grosse is near completion and expected this Fall on Interscope Records.

Manson Case Could Be Resolved Soon...

An Oakland County (Michigan) judge has refused to remove another judge from the assault case involving Marilyn Manson, clearing the way for a likely resolution of the case.

Rochester District Judge Julie Nicholson, of the 52nd District Court, was asked to disqualify Clarkston District Judge Gerald McNally. Prosecutors argued that McNally should be disqualified because he suggested he would fine Manson $2,000 on two misdemeanor charges.

Prosecutors said Monday they likely won't appeal Nicholson's ruling. Defense attorney Walter Piszczatowski said his client will likely plead to the misdemeanor and be done with the case.

"It's the correct ruling," Piszczatowski told The Oakland Press in Pontiac for a Tuesday story.

Manson was arrested after a July 30 performance at DTE Energy Music Theatre. Prosecutors allege that he assaulted a security guard there by rubbing his genitals against the guard's neck.

In December, the charges were reduced from fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and assault and battery to disorderly conduct — punishable by up to 90 days in jail.

Manson is expected to appear in court in Oakland County on June 14.

We have entered “The Golden Age of Grotesque”

Marilyn Manson has returned to crash the ether with a wit-savage shape, painting us a depraved new world disorder on his fifth studio album titled, “The Golden Age Of Grotesque.” Manson is currently in the studio and is expecting a fall release on Interscope Records. Even at such an early stage, the focus of the music’s aggressive transformation is fashioned and fearless.

The nearly completed collection of songs is being orchestrated by the theatrical production team of Manson, Tim Skold and Ben Gross. The result is what Marilyn Manson describes as his “most genius deluge of hardcore guitar-drum violence and reckless electronic-punk vaudeville mixed with 30s cabaret decadence and Arch-dandy dada. These snot-nose stompalongs will convince the finger-waving, faithless bangsters one thing for sure. We can only become what we really are when we no longer believe what others have convinced us to be. We won’t follow religion, we are one. And the understanding of my art is only the sad product of journalism. Fuck art. I am art.”

On his influences, Manson had this to say, “My inspiration for this record came from historic parallels to my own present position in popular culture. Most notably, I found myself fascinated with the overwhelming imaginative, sexually-depraved artistic chaos that just bled from some of history’s greatest minds as Berlin reached its creative extreme peak. The unfortunate onset of rigid control and conformity that brought Berlin to its fiery end seemed to almost mirror today’s less violent, but equally ignorant censorship and fear of ‘dangerous’ art.”

As a close to his speech, Manson added this: “So stand up dopplegangers, we are on a leave of Absinthe! Our lives are theatre, we are the art and the world will now become the beautifully grotesque stage it was always meant to be. Am I just an innocuous entertainer or am I the destructive force and the terrible reality you’ve suspected all along?

The simple answer is, I am Marilyn Manson.”

It sort of makes sense that Marilyn Manson has chosen to cover Soft Cell's 1982 new wave classic, "Tainted Love," for the upcoming film "Not Another Teen Movie."

A video for the track was shot by Philip Atwell, who has directed clips for Dr. Dre and Eminem. The soundtrack for "Not Another Teen Movie" is in stores NOW.

A remix of Manson's track "Nobodies" is currently featured in the Johnny Depp film "From Hell." Originally, Manson was approached to score the film, but creative differences with the production team nixed the deal, a spokesperson for Manson said. In the end, South African composer Trevor Jones supplied the sparse orchestral score.

Manson's other project of the moment is a live DVD, which was shot October 8, 2001 at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. The still-untitled DVD is scheduled for release sometime this year, the spokesperson said.

Manson has just recorded a version of "Tainted Love" that will be released as a single in conjunction with the film "Not Another Teen Movie." Look for the single sometime in early November.

In other movie news, Manson's remix of the "Nobodies" will appear in the Johnny Depp film "From Hell" as well as on the movie soundtrack. The score music that Manson composed in the film will not be used because no agreement could be reached.

Look for other Manson film projects to be announced soon.

In case you missed Marilyn Manson's Comments On U.S. Terrorist Attacks . . .

. . . on official BBS Thursday, September 13th we've provided it here for you:

Regarding the United States Terrorist attacks on Tuesday, Marilyn Manson posted two messages on his official site yesterday morning.

We all knew this day would come. My best wishes go out to those families who lost their loved ones. I also have friends in NY and of course here in LA that I am still concerned about. The only thing we can do now is to stick together. If it takes something this terrible to unite us, so be it.

America hasn't always stood by me, but I will surely stand by America. Let's never forget how lucky we are to have so much freedom.

Marilyn Manson

I have always said that I hate so much and love so much about this country. Of course we would love more freedom, but let's not forget what we already
have. And the freedom to live without fear.

When I say for us to unite I mean as like-minded individuals and as friends. I don't expect the country to come together because of this tragedy, but at least we can here.

Everyone is scared and confused and I wish I had more to offer. Right now I have my friends and family to worry about. I hope you all stay safe.

And for those who want to make ignorant comments about my feelings on this, you are entitled to your opinion but you can always take it somewhere else.

Even someone like me can show respect for those killed yesterday and for the people protecting our lives.

I expect the rest of you to as well.

LA Times Review :
Osbourne, Manson Men of the Hour at Ozzfest 2001 (full story)

Denver Post Review :
Rocker upstages critics, headliners (full story)

Chicago Daily Herald Denver protest story:
Ozzfest headliner also center stage in protest (full story)

"Ozzfest is Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne's namesake, but Saturday at Alpine Valley, it was Marilyn Manson's show. Manson opened his set by prancing on stage in a helmet adorned with long black feathers. By the third song, "Disposable Teens," Manson had lost the helmet but taken control of the audience. As he waved his microphone stand, made out of a rifle, in the air during one of his mid-show, anti-establishment sermons, the crowd looked to Manson as if he had all the right answers to the world's problems." (full review)
-- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A lean and hungry Manson - returning to Ozzfest to re-connect with his metal core - was up to the challenge. Taking the stage to "God Bless America," Manson launched into a hard-driving set thick with chugging numbers such as "Beautiful People," "Disposable Teens," "Rock Is Dead," "The Love Song," "Antichrist Superstar" and "The Fight Song." Clad in a leather bustier, long black gloves, fishnets, a g-string and a spiked helmet adorned with a black feathered head-dress, Manson worked the Spartan stage like a twitching serpent - gliding, pausing, jerking and gliding again - during an appropriately bare-knuckled set." (full review)

"Manson's last album, "Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death)," was a solid glam-rock effort that continued to betray the deepest, darkest secret of the former Brian Warner of Canton, Ohio: Underneath all that makeup and demonic posturing, he's really a pop tunesmith. (Marilyn Manson) strutted about the stage in his corset, fondling himself and his shotgun microphone stand and rising up on a hydraulic lift. But the showmanship never took a back seat to the tuneful crunch as his four-piece band gleefully romped through Satanic singalongs like "The Beautiful People," "Disposable Teens" and his exquisitely evil cover of "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This." (full review)
-- Chicago Sun-Times

"Manson needs to remind large audiences of his charisma, and he nailed that assignment on Tuesday. His hour onstage was a crushing assault on the senses."
-- Indianapolis Star

"By the time Marilyn Manson took the stage around 9 p.m., it was refreshing to hear a band that actually had a body of work larger than one or two albums. Arriving in his old black corset to the strains of "God Bless America," Manson displayed an assortment of his usual tricks (striding around the stage on stilts, ascending a gun-adorned pulpit, dressing up as the Pope), but had the solid catalog of songs to keep things fresh and keep the crowd pumped."

"I am truly amazed that after all this time, religious groups still need to attack entertainment and use these tragedies as a pitiful excuse for their own self-serving publicity. In response to their protests, I will provide a show where I balance my songs with a wholesome Bible reading. This way, fans will not only hear my so-called, 'violent' point of view, but we can also examine the virtues of wonderful 'Christian' stories of disease, murder, adultery, suicide and child sacrifice.

Former high school student, Nicholas J. Boroff was banned from Van Wert High School in Van Wert, Ohio, in August 1997 for wearing a Marilyn Manson T-shirt. On Monday, March 19, 2001, the court, without comment, turned down the Ohio student's argument that school officials could not keep him from wearing T-shirts depicting Manson.

School officials were able to ban the shirts because they were determined to be "vulgar, offensive and contrary to the educational mission of the school," the appeals court said, noting that school officials submitted evidence of the group's "pro-drug persona."

In the appeal acted on Monday, Boroff's lawyers said that while there was evidence that Manson had promoted drug use and Satanism, that did not mean school officials could ban students from wearing his name and picture.

The cover of Holy Wood has been banned from Circuit City and Best Buy. These stores will be carrying an alternate album cover. Manson had this to say.
"The irony is that my point of the photo on the album was to show people that the crucifixion of Christ is, in deed, a violent image. In fact, the picture itself is composed of a statue of Jesus taken from a place of worship. My jaw is missing as a symbol of this very kind of censorship. This doesn't piss me off as much as it pleases me, because those offended by my album cover have successfully proven my point."

[posted 11/12/2000 U.S.A.]


The impact of Marilyn Manson's subversive musical agenda has waned, and what's left is a provocative, talented artist writing affecting, powerful, and yes, controversial songs. Although Holy Wood is the third title of a trilogy that began with 1996's Antichrist Superstar, the album stands on its own. Rife with references to the Beatles and the Kennedys, and full of pop-culture barbs, Holy Wood is a musically diverse and powerful statement. The memorable sing-along "Disposable Teens" boasts the same kind of staccato, Teutonic, first-thrusting power introduced with "Beautiful People," while "Fight Song" is the Sex Pistols meets Blur by way of Nirvana. While a futuristic, nihilistic tint pervades Manson's work, passion is also prevalent, notably in the spooky acoustic number "A Place in the Dirt" and the brutal "Death Song." Like Marilyn Manson the man, Holy Wood is intelligent, dynamic, and multifaceted, with myriad charms that are evident to the tuned-in listener.

[posted 11/10/2000 U.S.A.]


ROLLING STONE - "You have to respect Manson for addressing real life issues with a theatrical verve and genuine vitriol that no other mainstream act can match."

NME - "By far the best thing Manson has ever set his warped mind to, 'Holy Wood...' ultimately inspires something far more potent than fear or hatred. Respect."

MELODY MAKER - "If your not consumed by its ferocity, you'll be enslaved by the hypnotic, pendulous mantras ("The Lamb of God", "Coma Black", "Valentine's Day")."

REVOLVER - "Holy Wood is the religiously offensive manifesto Manson promised."

FMQB - "Whether or not you care or believe in Manson's idealism, you got to admit, the guy has brass balls and writes some pretty damn good Rock songs."

Win Passes to Marilyn Manson Record Release Party in NY!

Marilyn Manson will make a pit-stop from his “Guns, God and Government” tour to showcase his famous people skills at a party celebrating the release of his latest offering, Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). The album and the party both hit Tuesday, November 14th.

To top off the excitement generally surrounding Manson, those special enough to make it into the New York venue will witness an acoustic performance by the unholy trinity of Marilyn Manson, Twiggy Ramirez and John5 -- a once-in-a-lifetime event. To win invites, fans can be one of the first 100 to buy the new record at Tower Records, 692 Broadway in New York, at the stroke of midnight this Monday, November 13th. Devotees can also get passes into the soiree by listening to K-ROCK (92.3 FM) or logging onto Manson’s website,

In contrast to the current tour, which Manson describes as “Cirque du Soleil meets the Sex Pistols” in Rolling Stone, favored guests and contest winners will be treated to a handful of songs never before performed acoustically, and doubtful ever to be performed that way again.

And for those who miss out, Marilyn Manson will appear on MTV’s Total Request Live the following afternoon, Wednesday, November 15th, before heading to their concert in Philadelphia. The band is back in New York City for two nights at the Hammerstein Ballroom on November 24th and 25th. Currently, the tour has taken Marilyn Manson to dates in Florida (November 9th – 12th), where the civic-minded band are standing by to volunteer instruction at the poll booths.

Marilyn Manson is proud to introduce Maven, the new band from collaborator and long- term inspiration Bon Harris, formerly of Nitzer Ebb. While creating Holy Wood, Bon played an integral role in sequencing, editing, pre-production and the actual creation of the album.

?Bon was someone I respected, even interviewed in ?9 and I was completely blown away by his musical ability and his voice. I was fortunate that he took time away from Maven to work with me because he became a sort of 6th member, and I don? use that term lightly. I think Maven adds genius songwriting to the genre of electronica in a totally original way.?

Marilyn Manson presents "The Death Song", the fourth audio preview from Holy Wood.

[posted 9/8/2000 U.S.A.]


Written in the house where the Rolling Stones lived during the making of Let It Bleed, and recorded at the home of the late magician Harry Houdini, Holy Wood is Manson at the top of his game. "All of us played different instruments during the making of this record," explains the singer. "It's kind of like our White Album. If you listened to three songs, it wouldn't be emblematic of the whole record." "Disposable Teens" is the crunchy cousin of "Beautiful People," "The Fight Song" has an acoustic-guitar part reminiscent of Blur's only U.S. hit, "Song #2," and "Burning Flag" would sound great while driving tanks through Gore and Bush's respective election-night headquarters. "This record is specifically designed for use while being beaten upon or inspiring you to beat upon someone," says Manson. "I'm not saying you should do that--I wanted to beat myself to death after listening to the entire record. If you don't want to hurt anybody after listening to the entire record, I think you can take it back for a refund."

Longtime Mansonites who might have been put off by his neo-glam opus, Mechanical Animals, will be sated by Dave Sardy's production expertise, the disc's sonic breadth and Manson's lyrical seething. We'll let the man have the last word: "The two years since the release of my last album have been filled with God and rappers. It's time for death and Satan to be put in the forefront."

Manson ditches glam for goth on new album
Rolling Stone ? August 17, 2000

With the title ?Holy Wood? (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) and thematic threads weaving connections between Christ and Kennedy, religion and violence, mass media and alienation, is it too much to call Marilyn Manson? almost-finished new opus a concept album?

?It? too little to call it a concept album,? says the lanky lighting rod for controversy, a mischievous sparkle in his eyes shining through dark glasses. Indeed, everything about this project screams ?heavyosity.? For one thing, it was recorded at the Hollywood Hills house once inhabited by magician Harry Houdini. And today, in the mixing studio where Manson and co-producer Dave Sardy are adding final touches, he is clearly going for a spooky ambience: The room is floored with blood-red mood light; there? an automatic rifle poised on the couch and a wolf? head resting atop the recording console.

Manson explains that this album is not a piece unto itself but the glue binding its two predecessors, 1996? Antichrist Superstar and 1998? Mechanical Animals, into what Manson describes as a semiautobiographical ?tryptic,? with an accompanying novel in the works as well. ?This story can be interpreted on a number of levels, but one of the simplest ways,? he says, ?is about a boy who wants to become part of the world that he doesn? feel adequate for, and the bitterness and rage becomes a revolution inside him , and what happens is that the revolution becomes just another product.?

?When he realizes it? too late,? Manson continues, ?his only choice is to destroy the thing he has created, which is himself.?

On such new songs as ?Target Audience,? ?Disposable Teens? and ?Cruci-Fiction in Space,? Manson dismantles the slick, glam-tinged sound of Animals in favor of the more brutal industrial-goth grind of his first album. He knows some will see this as a reaction to Animals?commercial shortcomings. And Manson admits that returning to his old sound was a way to reconnect with ?what a fan of Marilyn Manson wants.?

To Manson, that fits right into the themes of the album cycle. ?Mechanical Animals was to represent the point where the revolution got sold out, a hollow shell of what the essence of Marilyn Manson was,? he says. ?It was a satire, and a lot of people interpreted it as ?is is what he really is.?I was making a mockery of what I was, taking a shot at myself.?

He wasn? the only one taking shots, with the religious right trying to blame him for the Columbine tragedy and Courtney Love abandoning her tour with Manson last year. Manson says all that criticism made him defensive. But with the new album, he says, that? been purged: ?This is me coming out and swinging. Rather than being fucked in the ass (by the critics), I would kick their teeth in. But I want to do it a beautiful way, so that they could still be humming a tune as they held their mouths on the way to the orthodontist.? ? Steve Hochman

Manson's writing on the wall (US Weekly)

We don't think Marilyn Manson will be contributing to Bill Clinton's presidental library anytime soon. At Cafe des Artistes in L.A. recently, the shock rocker walked over to the wall of celebrity signatures, which includes Clinton's, drew a picture of a sperm pointing at Clinton's name and wrote COMMIE in big letters, much to the amusement of his girlfriend, Rose McGowan, and fellow diner Sally Kirkland. The restaurant's management hurriedly erased Manson's graffiti.

Josh Saviano of The Wonder Years(People Magazine)

At age 10, recalls Josh Saviano, "I was all eyes and nose, about 5'1" and so skinny I was blown backward when I walked into the wind. I was just a frail little boy with a lot of personality." The Wonder Years creators wanted Kevin Arnold's nerdy best friend to be asthmatic too. "They kept asking me to wheeze, and I couldn't do it," says Saviano, 24. "But I used to pretend I was sick when I didn't want to go to school and had a good fake sneeze down. When I did it, they went, 'That's it! That's it!' They loved the sneeze." Once cast, Saviano and costar Fred Savage were inseparable. "Josh is much cooler than people gave him credit for," says Savage. The boys shared a passion for Nintendo and baseball cards. "Fred went on The Tonight Show and announced he was a collector," says Saviano. "People started mailing him cards, so he totally beat me." Saviano can claim the most original rumor, though. While at Yale, where he earned a degree in political science in 1998, the Internet began buzzing that he was shock rocker Marilyn Manson. "I'd get 20 e-mails a week, and it still hasn't died!" says Saviano, who is a consultant at an Internet firm until he starts law school, probably in the fall. Although his family and friends, including girlfriend Jennifer, 28, an attorney, know the truth, Saviano isn't concerned about setting cyberspace straight. "What would you rather have, people thinking you're a dorky kid from The Wonder Years or a satanic rock star? It's way cooler for me."

Manson used to illustrate O'Reilly's interview skills

The following is excerpted from Brendan Bernhard's article in LA Weekly titled "Smut Factory: The Corruption of the American Television Critic

THE BEST PARTS OF O'REILLY'S SHOW CAME WHEN he sat down for face-to-face interviews with such media luminaries as Jack Valenti of the Motion Picture Association of America, rap moguls Russell Simmons and Damon Dash, "shock" DJs Opie and Antony, and rage rockers Marilyn Manson and Insane Clown Posse. (Sample lyric from the latter: "I stab old people, old ladies, little kids . . . I don't give a fuck! I stabbed the fat guy in the butt.") Aside from Manson, who at least appeared thoughtful for a guy who named himself after a mass murderer, most of them came off badly. Valenti appeared to have fallen asleep at the wheel about 20 years ago, oblivious to the blare of horns around him. The DJs, with their hackneyed blather about being "artists" and "pushing people's buttons" (a phrase Manson also used), were simply obnoxious. (There should be a moratorium on pushing people's buttons: We're not elevators.) As for Simmons and Dash, when O'Reilly asked them about the effect of the more grotesque rap lyrics on kids whose parents were either too busy or too irresponsible to watch out for them, their immediate response was to cast doubt on whether O'Reilly really "cares" about the lives of black people and to challenge his right to judge the songs in the first place. "Your rigid attitude about what we can do culturally is not, for me, a guideline to what I should do," said Simmons. Evidently, the preferred attitude chez Def Jam is a supine one -- best demonstrated by those ho's so prominently featured in their videos.
