what happened to slaughter ?

2 brilliant albums then shit ! an average 3rd album , a completely different futuristic hippie sound on the fourth and not one decent chorus, a best of , a live set , a fifth studio album which sounded better and had a couple of good songs.

don't change the fomula, although the first one had a couple of bon jovi songs , a few motley crue songs, one acdc tune and a mr. big acoustic song and some others.

They're sleeping all day.

dunno about that ... their careers appear to be have been taking a permanent dirtnap since 1991 or so.

Not Slaughter Joe, then?

who?

Different band on Creation circa 1984. The dude, "Slaughter" Joe Foster was in the TV Personalities and produced the first Jesus and Mary Chain single. This record sounds exactly like the JAMC:

Wasn't Mark Slaughter in later GI Joe episodes?

Richard Wood Johnson, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 16:54 (thirteen years ago) link

yes, and slaughter actually rhymes with laughter

I ran out of gas once on I-25 in Georgia during a hurricane, and they picked me up and took me to the nearest gas station. No shit!

Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected to see the adjective "brilliant" used in regards to Slaughter.

i had successfully forgotten about this band for over a decade until i opened this thread

Chicago Tribune

January 23, 1991, Wednesday, NORTH SPORTS FINAL EDITION

"Just think what great headlines we'd provide for the terrorists with a name like Slaughter," said rock 'n' roller Mark Slaughter in announcing that his band was quitting its European tour because of war-related threats.

I saw Slaughter in 1991. They dedicated "Fly to the Angels" to the men and women who defended our country in the Persian Gulf.

They also did that thing of substituting "Saddam Hussein" for "Chairman Mao" in their cover of "Revolution".

pplains, Thursday, 23 August 2012 18:40 (eight years ago) link

what did they rhyme it with?

how's life, Thursday, 23 August 2012 18:46 (eight years ago) link

But when you go carryin' pictures of Saddam Hussein/
Don't you know that you're gonna look insane?

A lyrical construction that flowed off of Mark Slaughters lips like honey.

Go to 2:22 for another version of that line.

Also note huge American flag held up in back of the room while hair band sings "Revolution".

pplains, Thursday, 23 August 2012 20:25 (eight years ago) link

Perfect! It doesn't get better than that.

it was a real missed opportunity that this thread was not titled "does anybody remember slaughter?"

some dude, Thursday, 23 August 2012 22:43 (eight years ago) link

that's like when i saw Hairball, a tribute 80s metal band

http://www.moondancejam.com/images/bandspage/regional09/hairball.jpg

and they did "Nothin' But a Good Time" by Poison and in the middle part they said "I make a toast to all of us/that's breakin' our backs every day/If you wear a towel on your head/THEN GET OUT OF THE USA"

Euler, Thursday, 23 August 2012 23:50 (eight years ago) link

Jandek at the Disco (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 23 August 2012 23:54 (eight years ago) link

Euler, Thursday, 23 August 2012 23:55 (eight years ago) link

The dude from Lynch Mob is the singer.

Would have loved to have seen them in the Jaimie St. James years.

I've decided this is the death/thrash metal Slaughter thread now.

Strappado is a fuckin weird album, like, I can tell they liked Celtic Frost a lot! not like the other earlier proto-death albums at all. I got a copy on CD yesterday finally.

Can this thread continue along parallel discussion lines with two completely different acts of the same name? I look forward to the Nirvana thread following suit.

I gave it my all and my all wasn't enough (Matt #2), Tuesday, 8 June 2021 21:16 (one week ago) link

The ICP thread did that too.

Halfway there but for you, Tuesday, 8 June 2021 21:23 (one week ago) link

There has NOT been two Insane Clown Possees!

pplains, Tuesday, 8 June 2021 21:25 (one week ago) link

They and the Instant Composers Pool orchestra.
