TKK’s Daisy Chain 4 Satan – Kills Squares Dead

Write Slut Playlist – 3
Thrill Kill Kult – A Daisy Chain 4 Satan

A word association game: after-hours clubs, goth girls with bad intentions, well vodka that tastes like nail polish, discharging firearms ‘just because,’ crawling home at dawn, sleeping until three in the afternoon.

I associate this truncated list of activities with a couple of bands, but My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult tops the list.

Call me crazy, (won’t be the first time) but I have a soft spot for artists who go out of their way to goad squares. One sure-fire way to piss off prudes is by celebrating everything they despise. But being openly transgressive wasn’t what made TKK successful. Sure that was part of the formula, but the ubiquity of TKK tracks in the club scene arose from incredibly danceable hooks, a unique style, and the ability to consistently lay down tracks which evoke impure lust.

TKK’s, “A Daisy Chain 4 Satan” is one of my go-to favorites when writing about night-crawlers and club culture. If this track doesn’t inspire irresponsible thoughts and/or memories of a good time, then you’re prolly dead from the waist down.
