Rob Zombie's little brother has a band that's stirring up interest...
they are called POWERMAN 5000...they are from Boston and have one EP
and one Full Length album out
(True Force and The Blood Splat Rating System repectively).
Now, I'm just speculating here but its too coincidental at the same time:
- The lead singer (and brother of Rob Zombie) of POWERMAN 5000's
nickname is Spider (real name mike cumming),
which has showed up in White Zombie's song "Spiderbaby
(Yeah-Yeah-Yeah)"--"yeah I knew I hit the edge when I saw the SPIDER - a
jukebox paranoid insider..."
- Also the band name Powerman 5000 seems to referred to in the White Zombie
song "Starface"---"...at the moonlight superfly - a penetrating POWERMAN 'oh
baby' I'm painted in the sky..."
- PM5K's Guitar player is John Tempesta's brother
powerman 5000 was making a new album called anyone for doomsday but dorian
heartsong and the drummer left the band.
so spider stopped the album from ever coming out and found replacements.
now they have an even better drummer his name is AD7 and an equally as good bass play, they call him Siggy, they are currently working on a new album with all new songs from doomsday but dont expect it to kick much ass because spider wants to be more melodic on this album
Rob Zombie sing along spider on song "the world colapses"
and directed Tokyo Vigilente Video (anyone has that one) ?
Powerman 5000 will release their new album Transform on May 20th !!
Check the samples and Team :
Rob and Glen seems to be friends since WZ were opening for Danzig
BLACK SABBATH & OZZY
SIX-STRING MASTERPIECES:THE DIMEBAG DARRELL ART TRIBUTE is:
A collection of 50 guitars, HAND-PAINTED by world-famous Rock Stars
and internationally known Modern Artists.
Rz Designed a Tribute Guitar
Rob played a duo with him on the lame
compilation "Songs in the key of X".
And once Alice joined White Zombie on stage with his bloody white top hat,
coat and cane to sing School's Out.
In addition, Rob just participated in recording a live album of
Alice's 70's material with Alice (Rob is featured on two tracks,
"Elected" and "Feed My Frankenstein")
and a bunch of other celebrities including
Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Slash, Steve Vai.

White Zombie covered god of thunder in their early release,
and they wanted to have that song on a KISS tribute, but they were refused
(I supose it was kiss my ass)
Around 1989, WZ covered live song "War Machine".
On RZ 2d solo album TSU, Kerry king is his special guest
John Lennon Tribute
They might have worked on it with Charlie Clauser (any infos ?)
(btw they already covered "Helter skelter" live recorded on resurection days)
Real Solution #9 refers to charlie and J. lennon.
"Revolution 9" may refers to Chapitre 9 of St Jean Apocalypse.
"The Beatles White Album" has other, more sinister associations: it is claimed that the Beatles' songs "Helter Skelter" and "Little Piggies" inspired Charles Manson to murder Sharon Tate and others in 1969.
Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate's husband, had used the Dakota apartments as a setting for his film "Rosemary's Baby", about a woman giving birth to the Devil's child.
KMFDM is a german industrial/dance band and
they Remixed Black sunshine and TK65

Pantera toured w/ WZ on the astrocreep tour.
The 'Astro-creep2000' and 'The Great Southern Trendkill' have the same
producers (and mixers) - Terry Date & Ulrich Wild.
and the similar song names 'Electric Head Pt.1' - 'Electric Head Pt.2'
and 'Suicide Note Pt.1' - 'Suicide Note Pt.2'... Simply coincidence or what?

He is thanked into MTDS, also he is the voice of the intro of black sunshine
(he is also acting in BS video), I suppose he is doing some background

Another connection is the movie the crow 2 : Iggy was actor in this movie
while WZ realised a song on the The crow 2 soundtrack
I met the korn pple who have toured w/ WZ, they said they partied w/ WZ pple

Industrial Rock Pioneers Ministry serving as an influence to a wellspring
of budding artists, from Nine Inch Nails and White Zombie
to Fear Factory and Orgy.
From what I've heard Al and Rob don't like each other much.
Al thinks that Zombie stole his image.
but Rob replyed that if you look at pictures of him from a long time ago he alway's looked like that and he said Al probably didn't...
Anyway Both music rocks, u should enjoy them

Former Nine Inch Nails member Chris Vrenna has remixed Rob
Zombie's 'Demon Speeding' for the
marks the second remix Vrenna has done for Zombie, following his work on ROB's

Prong formed in June of 1986
All members of Prong had a collaborative background in the New York underground music scene.
Ted Parsons was a former member of The Swans.
Tommy Victor performed with various members of Live Skull,
The Swans, and the Misfits in different incarnations.
There was later a subsequent swapping of bass players, when Troy moved over to Killing Joke, and in return Paul Raven left Killing Joke and took over bass duties at Prong.
The present bass player Rob Nicholson (Blasko)
has gained success with the band Drown.
Charlie Clouser (NIN, WZ keyboard programmer) is on latest PRONG
: _Rude awakening_ (96-Epic) as keyboard programer too.
And they toured a video under Rob Zombie Direction (Rude Awakening).
In Kurt Cobain's Journal book @

What other link to nirvana can we make ?
If you a Nirvana fan, you'd better have a look at
I don"t believe that quote was against WZ, just a statement on punkrock lyrics.
BTW Kurt Cobain told SPIN Magazine that he was VERY fond of "Psycho-Head Blowout". It was one of his favorite EP's.
The Dust Brothers were among the preeminent producers of the 1990s,
helming records for everyone from Beck to Hanson
while influencing countless others with their signature
cut-and-paste marriage of hip-hop and rock.
Not to be confused with the British production duo the Chemical Brothers,
who began their career under the same name before receiving
a cease-and-desist order, the Los Angeles-based
Dust Brothers were Mike Simpson and John King,
who met in 1983 while working at the Pomona College radio station.
They originally teamed to DJ at parties, and by the end of the decade
scored a production deal with the Delicious Vinyl label.
In 1989, they scored chart success producing debuts from
rappers Tone-Loc (the monster hit "Wild Thing") and Young M.C.,
but their most distinctive early work was on
the Beastie Boys' groundbreaking Paul's Boutique,
widely acclaimed among the most innovative
and influential albums of the period for its pioneering use
of digital sampling. In the years to follow,
the Dust Brothers emerged among the most sought-after remixers
and producers in the industry,
working on projects for everyone from White Zombie (remixes)
to Technotronic to Shonen Knife; they also founded their own label,
Nickel Bag (later changed to Ideal), and in 1996 helmed
Beck's extraordinary Odelay. Branching out even further,
in 1997 they produced Hanson's chart-topping "MMMBop,"
as well as a handful of tracks from the Rolling Stones'
Bridges to Babylon LP. Their first full-length solo record
was the score for the 1999 film Fight Club.
While they played a few dates together in the UK,
this was supposed to be a bigger tour w/ both bands co-headlining
(MM playing first set in UK, RZ playing first set in rest of Europe).
Supposedly RZ didn't want to have to play first (dunno if it was ego,
or what something related to his stage).
Also, MM opened for WZ in the USA back in '93.
Sometime after that, Sean Yseult and Dave Wyndorf hooked up for a while.

HELMET Reunion A No-Go: Spokesperson - Aug. 25, 2003
Contrary to published reports, HELMET have no plans at present
to reunite for a tour in conjunction
with a retrospective of the group's three studio albums for Interscope, due on November 4 through Universal Records.
A management spokesperson for HELMET frontman
Page Hamilton told Billboard.com that he was unsure
how the rumor began, but confirmed that Hamilton
is working on a new project with late-period HELMET guitarist Chris Traynor, among others. The two musicians recently played together on tracks intended for BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale's solo debut.
According to the spokesperson,
Hamilton is no longer pursuing his band GANDHI,
which featured former WHITE ZOMBIE drummer
John Tempesta and ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob Nicholson.
Hamilton is currently unsigned, a fact that he found mildly irritating in light of the band's widespread influence among today's up-and-coming rock acts.
"They're more reluctant to sign someone who's 40 years old
and known for this certain thing," Hamilton told Billboard.com in January. "'We think you're the greatest. We respect you so much, but how do we market this?' you go see a band and they're playing a riff I wrote 10 years ago and they have a wallet chain and a load in their pants and they'll get signed."
