The World According to Danzig 

Wednesday, Nov 5 2008

Might Glenn Danzig claim the fearmonger-turned-celebrity throne vacated when Ozzy Osbourne's TV show ended? Seems possible. The brooding singer, formerly of the Misfits, Samhain, and, uh, Danzig, has lurched along the dark end of rock street for three decades, and will be forever remembered for the immortal lines, "Father!/Do you wanna bang heads with me?!" But at 53, Danzig has been looking to expand his empire beyond cult (and occult) audiences. Danzig songs have been played during the Super Bowl and World Series, and the man himself (in cartoon form, anyway) has appeared in an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Danzig also founded a goth-porn comic book company called Verotik. Is a reality show next?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
