03.03.13 - TIME 4 MORE SLEAZE!

SLEAZEBOX RECORDS is getting ready for a busy year, with at least 6 releases on the schedule. This April 9th we’ll see both the release of DJ TOXIC RAINBOW’Shot and wild “KOOLER THAN JESUS” 2013 remix, as well as a dark and melodramatic single titled “HELLO ALONE” by DARLING KANDIE – one of TKK frontman Groovie Mann’s other projects.
Also scheduled in May is the first digital release of the original 1989 TKK “INFERNO XPRESS” tour, which features live tracks from that infamous 2nd tour, where THRILL KILL KULT performed 70′s disco “mash-ups” of their most notable songs.
TKK’s Buzz McCoy is finishing up work on 2 side-projects slated for release early this summer with titles yet to be announced. More news coming SOON!

01.13.12 - BOMBS AWAY!

Bomb Gang Girl Jacky Blacque flew to Los Angeles to visit Buzz for the Xmas holiday, where they spent most of their time at StarLust Studios working on the first ever BOMB GANG GIRL album! The project will feature many of the past BGG’s, as well as a few newcomers. Buzz described the sound of the CD as falling  somewhere between the techno aspect of the 13 ABOVE THE NIGHT album, and the “rock a-go-go” feel of HIT & RUN HOLIDAY. The yet untitled album is scheduled for an early Summer 2012 release.

06.09.11 - SEXY EVIL GENIUS

Today Buzz, Groovie, and Bomb Gang Girl Ubah-Baybi met with the cast and crew of  “Sexy Evil Genius”, a new film starring Katee Sackhoff, Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg and Billy Baldwin. Producers are considering using some of the band’s music in the movie. The script was written by Scott Lew, a filmmaker afflicted by ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig¹s Disease, the same malady suffered by Stephen Hawking. Lew wrote the script using an infrared dot on his forehead, pointing to letters and words on the computer screen. Lew is also a big THRILL KILL fan from Chicago, and TKK and their lyrics are referenced throughout the film because they happen to be both the lead characters’ favorite band from their early college years. The film is scheduled for a 2013 release.
