Danzig's Mother 12", only released in the good old UK and although not particularly rare a really nice looking slab of vinyl. Which in turn leads me on to my "one" Danzig encounter. Back in 1989 Danzig supported Metallica at Newcastle City Hall and much to my good fortune I managed to be front row when the master of evil and shortness played on his debut UK tour. Anyway can't actually remember the song but whilst I was enjoying being so close to the man himself his mic chord managed to wrap itself around my head and before I could free myself the man himself decided to yank the chord which promptly tightened behind my neck and the next thing I knew I was face down on Danzig's boots and partly on stage with him! Fuck yes beat that!!!!

This 12" was released in 94 and the only interesting fact is that he live version of "Mother" supposedly taken from Thrall-Demonsweatlive is actually just the '94 remix with live crowd noise. "Mother '94" is identical to "Mother '93."

Good to see you back and posting some cool shit on the blog. Nice story about getting strangled by Danzig's mic cord. Ha!
