There is actually a bootleg available of the original Smells Like Children album, called Resident Evil. It has the original 'Smells Like Children' track listing, possibly without The Hands of Small Children or May Cause Discolouration of the Urine or Faeces, though the first could be track 16, listed simply as untitled, and the latter could be track 17, Procardia. Tracks 18 and 19 are not part of the original album, but demos of My Monkey and Choklit Factory.
Mr. Manson's thoughts on the bootleg availability of the original album?
"What had began as a very disturbing record had become a record that disturbed only me. The only solace was that through some unfortunate error someone at the recording plant made several thousand copies of our original version of the album, thinking it was the new one... Now, they are available to anyone who wants to hear them on the Internet. Though someone at the label actually accused me of plotting it, I wish I was that resourceful. God, however irrelevant he may be to me, works in mysterious ways."
- The Long Hard Road out of Hell, pg 192.
'Marilyn Manson' refers to the band; 'Manson' refers to the lead singer. This was much easier when the band were called 'Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids'.
I don't actually own 'Smells Like Children', so if any of my comments are hopelessly wrong, or you can shed light on the tracks I don't know, please msg me.
Track listing of Resident Evil:
- Abuse Part One (There is Pain Involved) Not included on the Smells Like Children album, it is a recorded backstage confession from a female fan, to Tony Wiggins, during Marilyn Manson's tour with Danzig. The incident is described in more detail on page 190 of Manson's autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell. Essentially, the girl begged to be abused until she screamed that her life was worthless and wanted to be killed. On being told Wiggins was not going to kill her, she responded, "I don't fucking care. This feels so fucking good."
- Diary of a Dope Fiend. A slower and much more menacing version of Dope Hat, track 6 on Portrait of an American Family.
- Shitty Chicken Gang Bang. An obvious pun on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a film which Manson claims to love. A very strange instrumental.
- Kiddie Grinder. A remix of Portrait of an American Family's Organ Grinder. Heavier than the original, but less melodic. Contains quotations from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the film of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; another film which Manson claims to love.
- Sympathy for the Parents. Collage of interviews and TV appearances. Compare with the end track ("I want my son off of your mailing list...") of Portrait.
- Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This. The single credited with getting Marilyn Manson most of its fans. Sounds kinda like the original Eurythmics hit played very slowly. Manson claimed that the line, "Some of them want to abuse you/ Some of them want to be abused" summed up most of the people he met touring.
- Everlasting Cocksucker. Remix of Cake and Sodomy, from Portrait of an American Family. The "I am the God of fuck" line gets more airing than in the original.
- Fuck Frankie. Porn pastiche. The sole lyrics appear to be "Say fuck Frankie" "Fuck Frankie". Homage to tour manager Frankie (Proia?) who ran up $20,000 in expenses for which he could not account. Pogo (Stephen/Madonna Wayne Gacy, keyboard player) is credited with composition. When asked what was going through his mind while making this track, Manson replied "Am I going to get caught? And how will I explain to the police all the blood and chicken feathers?".
- I Put a Spell on You. Cover version of the song sung by, among others, Screamin' Jay Hawkins. For my money, better than Hawkins' version; certainly just as dark.
- Abuse Part Two (Confession). Another backstage confession from a female fan, this time of molesting her cousin.
- Scabs, Guns and Peanut Butter. By Twiggy Ramirez. A very odd instrumental, sounding distinctly country and western/trailer trash.
- Dance of the Dope Hats. Faster and dance-ier remix of Dope Hat, from Portrait of an American Family.
- White Trash. Trailer trash version of Cake and Sodomy, from Portrait of an American Family, by Tony Wiggins]. Different lyrics from the original, which I may one day node. If someone else doesn't get there first.
- Dancing with the One-Legged.... Another collage of interviews and TV appearances. 'Dancing with the one-legged pimp' was, within the band, slang for taking drugs as, during one tour, their narcotics were hidden in the detatchable leg of a Huggy Bear doll.
- Rock 'n' Roll Nigger. Cover of the Patti Smith song. Also contains lines from Antichrist Superstar ("the world spreads its legs for another star") and the Portrait album sleeve ("This is your world in which we grow. And we will grow to hate you").
- Untitled. Your guess is as good as mine. As it's an instrumental, it could well be The Hands of Small Children, which otherwise doesn't appear on a tape claiming to be the "uncut and uncensored" album.
- Procardia. No idea. An extremely strange instrumental (if distorted voice counts as an instrumental) with lots of sucking noises and what sounds like distorted screams, threats and giggling. Ends with quotes from Raggedy Ann about taking care of your body juxtaposed with a conversation about misusing medication. From the description in Marilyn Manson: A biography by Kurt B. Reighley, this is what, on the official album, becomes May Cause Discolouration of the Urine and Faeces.
- My Monkey. Demo version of the Charles Manson song which appears on Portrait of an American Family. Darker than the final version, with different lyrics in places and lacking 6-year-old Robert Pierce's vocal contribution.
- Choklit Factory. Begins with a quotation from Willy Wonka and the Chcolate Factory. It also contains the chant from the chocolate factory boat ride that becomes Prelude: The Family Trip on Portrait. The lyrics also contain a reference to Jeffrey Dahmer: "Jeff saved for later/ His prizes of iniquity." Demo version; doesn't appear on Marilyn Manson's official albums (Portrait of an American Family, Smells Like Children, Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, The Last Tour on Earth and Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). It does, however, appear on a four track tape Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids released in January 1991 - After School Special. As with all of the releases when the band were still the Spooky Kids, a lot of Manson fans would cheerfully kill to get their hands on this tape.
