My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult/ Murder Happens

7 p.m. Monday, August 13. Pop's, 1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois


My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult has been on an S&M spree for twenty years now. Enthralled by B-movies and techno, the group came up through the same Chicago scene that spawned Ministry. Over the years, they've cut a host of grinding dance tracks about sucking, licking, biting and dancing, such as 1990's "The Days of Swine and Roses" and 1991's "Sex on Wheelz." But some of the Kult's best songs are genre pieces, like 1989's electro-swing "Devil Bunnies." And the new, aptly titled The Filthiest Show in Town finds the co-ed group dabbling in jet-set sounds designed for a swingin' bachelor pad — albeit one equipped with a rack. The local gothed-out souls Murder Happens open. &#
