“Sex on Wheelz” – My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult

It’s Friday night … time to get your freak on to something completely sleazy … this time from the early 1990s. I don’t know what they’re going for in this video. It’s like some crazy hybrid between 80s glam metal, Dee-Lite, and Nine Inch Nails. It’s what passed for “alternative culture” before the popularity of Nirvana ironically codified it into a rigid, definable style. I love Nirvana, but as the years go by, I find the “alternative culture” that flourished before Nirvana’s popularity more charming.  It’s kind of like the early – mid 1970s before the Sex Pistols caught on (i.e. New York Dolls, the Dictators, Iggy and the Stooges, Pentagram), when certain folks were grasping for a style and weren’t quite sure what they put out would be cool or not.  They just let their freak flag fly because they felt different and they did whatever the hell felt right.
