It's 1987 and a band called Hammerhead Housewife and the Thrill Kill Kult
, featuring core TKK members Groovie Man
and Buzz McCoy
, are tired of playing for years and not making any money. They come up with an idea for a movie that is going to be something out of Charles Manson
's Spahn Ranch
, and decide to name it My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. While shopping around for record labels and funding, they sit down with Dannie Flesher
and Jim Nash
, founders of Chicago-based industrial label Wax Trax!
records. After some discussion, Dannie and Jim decide that the movie's not worth it, but the soundtrack for it is great! And so, The Thrill Kill Kult was born.
