FOAAM
A very early and short interview about the Spooky Kids. Includes question about the music, live shows and the band in general.
Marilyn Manson
1992

June Westenburg:
So, how did the show go last night? I got to catch a little bit of it at the end and you guys seemed to be doing all right..

Marilyn Manson:
Yeah, actually, it didn't go half bad - the sound was fucked somewhat but overall we had a great time.

June Westenburg:
Your guitarist got smoked pretty hard with something - he was bleeding..

Marilyn Manson:
Yeah, Daisy got hit with something thrown from the audience - I don't think it was aimed directly at him...But it hit him pretty hard

June Westenburg:
Him and the bassist - they're the ones who write the music, right?

Marilyn Manson:
Mm mm and Madonna does as well. I write the lyrics, they write the music. Daisy and Gidget mostly. Mostly Daisy.

June Westenburg:
It was you and him who hooked up in the beginning, right?

Marilyn Manson:
It's an odd story, I think I met him at a party or something and we were both really interested in making music - he'd already had some experience with bands and stuff under his belt - like just fucked up instrumentals with a drum machine..So when we just started out, it was him on guitar and drum machine, and me on voice...Very lo-fi, which is how I'd like it to stay..

June Westenburg:
Looks like you guys are slowly climbing up the ladder of success..

Marilyn Manson:
Sounds like it. I'm not sure. I don't know what I want to happen. I think I'd handle stardom pretty well, eh? *Laughs*

June Westenburg:
HARDCORE!

Marilyn Manson:
FUCK YEAH!

June Westenburg:
So, you get along with the rest of the band more or less okay?

Marilyn Manson:
More or less. There's a few problems but they're ones that I can overlook. You know, the everyday problems a band goes through.

June Westenburg:
I couldn't stand it. Well, maybe I could.

Marilyn Manson:
You probably could. It turns out great after everyone just sort of cools off, you know?

June Westenburg:
Yeah, yeah, I know..Soooo..Single?

Marilyn Manson:
Er. Not really. Kind of. Nooo..Well..*laughs*

June Westenburg:
Haha..Not too sure eh? Boy or girl?

Marilyn Manson:
Girl.

June Westenburg:
If you don't want to talk about sex, that's okay..

Marilyn Manson:
All right. We won't. Let's just say I'm just a curious little boy who likes to try out new things...Yeah..

June Westenburg:
Aren't we all, though. Any last words before we end?

Marilyn Manson:
Well, I don't want to end up being a media whore. And all that. I want to be a positive and negative symbol at the same time. Make any sense?

June Westenburg:
Of course.
