MECHANICAL ANIMALS

Mechanical Animals is music-wise a lot lighter than the previous album, but the lyrics are probably even darker and depressing. On a quest for purity, Manson goes the opposite direction, using alter ego superstar Omega and his band The Mechanical Animals (as a reference to Bowie's Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Hell) to go down a road of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.

"To me it's a pretty depressing record, and at times it leads you to believe it's not depressing, it's being intentionally fake and sarcastic. The elements of glam are very ironic. I think the more people begin to listen to it, they'll see that the dark. When things are expressed innocuously that's when they're most depressing" (MM in Dissecting MM (pg.14))

Lifecast of Manson's head by Mark Alfrey (www.markalfrey.com), who also created the body seen on the cover picture of the 'Mechanical Animals' album, and used in the 'The Dope Show' music video. This is believed to be created at the time of the 'The Dope Show' music video shoot. There are only 5 made.
I got it displayed in a custom made display case, with led lights to create a museum-like feeling.
