Musical Inspiration: Mindless Self Indulgence

What can I say? Jonathan and I are inspired people.

This week's musical muse comes in the form of MSI, or Mindless Self Indulgence.

Sprouting from Jimmy Urine's solo album known as "Mindless Self Indulgence", the punk rock project - later a full-fledged group -came around two years later with the addition of Steve Righ?, Vannessa Y.T., and Kitty under the same name as Urine's original endeavor. Still raging on over ten years later despite line-up changes*, MSI packs a punch that leaves grandma twitching on the floor beside her rocker. Their music, often politcally incorrect and deviously playful, is the industrial sound that just tickles my fancy.

(*Vanessa Y.T. was later replaced by Lyn-Z.)

Give them a listen. The repetitive lyrics with that rushing bass are sure to soothe your angry soul.


Until we meet again,
-Kateri Joe

P.S. -- Here's a fun fact for any comic connoisseur: That video in this post was directed by Jhonen Vasquez.

Have a great weekend, yourself!
