My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult is an American industrial rock band known for their provocative stage performances and satirical, often controversial, lyrical content. Formed in 1987 by Groovie Mann (born Frankie Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (born Marston Daley), the band has its roots in the Chicago industrial music scene.
Originally intended to be a film project, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult quickly evolved into a musical act when Nardiello and Daley started recording songs for the soundtrack. The duo soon found their niche with their blend of industrial rock, disco, and B-movie inspired samples.
The band’s debut album, “I See Good Spirits and I See Bad Spirits,” released in 1988, encapsulates their distinctive sound and thematic approach, which includes a focus on tongue-in-cheek exploration of cult and exploitation movie motifs. The album’s success established the band as one of the leading figures in the industrial rock genre.
Over the years, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult has released numerous albums, each showcasing their evolution in style while maintaining the darkly humorous and satirical edge that they are known for. Their unique take on industrial rock and performance art continues to attract a dedicated fan base, making them one of the most enduring acts in the genre.
