1. A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (Acid and Flowers Mix), 2. The Days of Swine and Roses, 3. Hand in Hand, 4. Waiting for Mommie, 5. Confessions of a Knife (Theme Part I), 6. Ride the Mindway, 7.

Ride The Mindway (UK Remix), 13. Confessions Of A Knife (Theme Part 3)

It’s a band founded in 1987 releasing albums, singles, EPs, remixes quite regularly and touring as often as working in the studio.

The band’s name come from a movie title by Marston E. Daley (Buzz McCoy) and Frankie Nardiello aka Groovie Mann, (they performed in Special Effect with Al Jourgensen a founder of Ministry). Daley and Nardiello worked out an image based on horror movies, as well as used samples cut out of movies this kind. MLWTTKK is also one of the few bands recording for a famous Chicago based industrial record label Wax Trax! and making continuously groove industrial music for years. Charles Levi joins the ranks of other bands, mostly industrial rock kind of so the list lenghtens every year, what’s more it’s easy to recognize his characteristic, vibrating bass lines.

Confessions of a Knife it’s another controversially named album by MLWTTKK, including 13 songs both funky and electronic, industrial and house tuned. Remastered version of the album differs to the original of the three ending songs. Rykodisc, for which MLWTTKK has been releasing albums since leaving Wax Trax! remastered the album after 14 years since it’s premiere.

There are a few great songs on the album like Hand in Hand with its trance, subdued climate and industrial background, way similar to the early Ministry stuff. Waiting for Mommie is a happy, glam-funky track with funny lyrics. It’s also a sound of Wax Trax!, which appears in a few Ministry songs from the early 80s. The title track (Theme Part I) sounds charming thanks to its gentle guitar riffs and subtle but solid bass rhythm, alike in (Theme Part II). It’s an instrumental track at the same time. I liked Ride the Mindway too for its coherent dynamics and Kooler Than Jesus (Electric Messiah Mix), already a cult MLWTTKK songs played on most of the band’s shows.
But what I loved it’s the third Theme for Confessions of a Knife, I guess the most industrial, with a siren and gloomy background, devilish vocals kept in an oniric vibe. It’s the best album of those I’ve heard by MLWTTKK so far.
