Kid D. & The Nightshades - Satyricon (1986)

First, I wanted to say sorry about the lack of posts recently. I've been swamped with work and life in general. I'll try to be as active as possible. I have a few 7" records planned that I think will go over well. Stay tuned.

Ok, a lot to cover on this one, so I'll try to keep it as tidy as possible.

I've mentioned this LP in previous posts, as it's related to a couple of them. Kid D. (or Kid Death) is an alias of Svart Klovn, who released a couple of well-known singles, the 2nd of which (Queen Bitch) leads off the LP, and the b-side of that single (A-hhh) is found later on. I've posted my rip of that 7" here.

There are a couple of cover songs thrown in here as well. The first is a magical version of Clockwork Orange's "Sensation Boys". The other is a cover of the legendary Lou Reed-penned track, "Venus In Furs".

Now, on to what's left of the album. "Frankie Goes To Woodstock" is the first original track found on the LP. It's a fun track with Kid Death's signature sound quite evidently present. Next comes "Syob Noitasnes Wow" (Wow Sensation Boys), which is, as you may have guessed, the lyrics of Sensation Boys played backward. It's strangely enjoyable, believe it or not, particularly due to the soothing synth lines and the lyrics "When you close your eyes, you can feel what you like".

The the b-side opens with an instrumental called "Phenylcyclohexylpiperidin" for... all the molecular biochemist listeners out there...? The final two songs are the album title track, another classic Kid Death number, and "Wildshot", which closes out the album in a bizarre compilation of yelling and screaming.

Do enjoy!

Track List:

A1 - Queen Bitch
A2 - Frankie Goes To Woodstock
A3 - Sensation Boys
A4 - Syob Noitasnes Wow
B1 - Phenylcyclohexylpiperidin
B2 - Venus In Furs
B3 - A-hhh
B4 - Satyricon
B5 - Wildshot
