My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult
My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult {Bonus Tracks}
Rykodisc
www.sleazeboxrecords.com


In the absence of any new material since 2001's Reincarnation Of Luna, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult have opted to release a handful of remix projects, a live album and a 'Best Of' collection much to the chagrin of their cult following. 2004 is no exception as Rykodisc re-releases three of TTK's early discs - I See Good Spirits I See Bad Spirits, Confessions of the Knife, and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult {Bonus Tracks}. While the two full-length albums have extra tracks, they are remixes and live performances of tunes found on the same disc. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult {Bonus Tracks} brings together 1990's Kooler The Jesus EP with some elusive singles - "Cuz It's Hot" and the 12-inch version of "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan" - and a couple of previously unreleased songs. The remastering of "Kooler" sheds new light on the intricate details lost on the murky WaxTrax! version. However, the additional material tacked on the end doesn't stay true to the dark satanic ambience of the rest of the collection. There are two cuts recorded for the Showgirls soundtrack and a remix of "Leathersex", which represent the bands' later campy disco period. Still, for the money, this is a smart set of three re-issues and will appease the novice listener. However, hardcore disciples of TTK will still be pleading for a new batch of sleaze.
