about

Back in the early 2000's, I became friends with the artist Gidget Gein. He was most well known as co-founder and bassist of the group Marilyn Manson, but during the time I knew him, he was establishing himself as a talented visual artist creating a unique world of surrealist/exploitation/pop art.

In 2004, Gidget came up with the concept for a fashion line called USE ONCE AND DESTROY COUTURE and organized a huge art opening/fashion show to commemorate its launch. He asked me if I would provide a "soundtrack" for the event to which I enthusiastically agreed. I surprised him with 8 original pieces of music which would serve as the backdrop to the wondrous parade of miscreants who strutted down the make-believe catwalk. A limited-edition CD entitled, "Music for Gidget Gein's Gollywood" was sold exclusively at this show.

In memory of my old friend, and in the spirit of exploitation which I am sure he would appreciate, I am re-releasing my original Gollywood Soundtracks, as well as 4 never-before-heard tracks featuring myself and Gidget Gein in the aforementioned jam session which we never revisited.
