My Asshole Reputation Proceeds Me

Long day. Industrial music time. Smashy smashy.

Mussolini Headkick
Themes For Violent Retribution
It’s been a while since I put up a complete album so I thought I’d dig up this industrial gem from 1989 that’s sadly gone out of print. Mussolini Headkick was the side-project of Luc Van Acker, who himself is a member of Al Jourgensen’s side-project Revolting Cocks. While Jourgensen’s side-project was an excuse for him to a silly bastard with songs like a cover of Rod Stewart’s “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” Mussolini Headkick was an outlet for Van Acker to be a miserable sod, with tunes like “Your God Is Dead” and “Plain Unhappy.” It’s not exactly upbeat dance music, but fans of industrial music should dig it. As I said before, this record is out of print and CDs of it go for 50 bucks on eBay. This is a rip off my own personal vinyl copy and I think it came out pretty well.

Oh, and one more thing. The cover for this record is really something – but don’t look at it and think it’s a pro-Nazi thing – he’s really making an anti-Nazi statement with it. Even though, I thought it would be a good idea for me not to thumbnail that one.

I’m sure you’re thinking “Hurray, 20 million remixes of a song I’ve never heard of, thanks a lot Lost Turntable dude.” First of all, stop being an asshole, that’s my job. And secondly, even if you haven’t heard of Die Warzau you should check out these mixes. This is industrial-dance of the Ministry variety, which makes sense since these guys were also part of the Chicago industrial scene. That’s right, even though they have that amazingly German sounding name these dudes were from Chicagoland.

    Thanks for the Die Warzau post! “Disco Rigido” was an EXCELLENT album and still holds up pretty good.
