Satan On Fire
SOF was an early side project collaboration between Manson and his friend from Amboog-a-lard, Geordie White (later to be known as Twiggy Ramierez). Manson played lead bass and White was on vocals. It was supposed to be a Christian thrash-metal band designed so that they could sneak their message into Christian night clubs. According to interviews, they recorded a track named Mosh For Jesus, which got airplay on local Christian rock radio stations. No copies of this song have surfaced in the fan community yet, though.
In a brief interview that was in one of the Spooky Kids newsletters, Manson described Satan On Fire:
|Chad: What is "SATAN ON FIRE"?
Manson: SATAN ON FIRE is a band in town that calls themselves "christian death
metal." They hate the Spooky Kids because we are what they call
are going to let them play with us at the BUTTHOLE SOUTH.
Chad: Is Gordy White really your lover?
Manson: No comment.
In the October 1996 issue of Guitar World, Manson and Twiggy had this to say about Satan On Fire when interviewed:
Manson: Right before he [Twiggy] joined Marilyn Manson, we had two
Ramirez: Videotapes of that are floating around.
GW: Did you actually infiltrate these Christian nightclubs?
Manson: Well, we never really got that far, but we did have a song out
Ramirez: The Mrs. Scabtree single that was played on the radio down there
GW: It must have been a very long song.
Four of the mystery tracks from the 100 Minute Demo have been identified as Satan On Fire songs by Scott Putesky. Now keep in mind that he didn't actually play on any of these songs, and they certainly don't sound like anything like Christian death metal, but so far it's the best explanation we've got.
There is also some confusion over the track that was listed as Number Nine. There are actually three tracks between Devil In My Lunchbox and Cat In The Hat, but the track listing on the oldest known copy of the demo only has Number Nine listed in between. It's not know if there were proper names for all three of these songs, and the taper forgot to list them, or if all three are presented as a whole called Number Nine. The first section starts with a bunch of Spooky Kids hotline messages set to a drum machine beat, and is commonly known as "Bone Job," a title made up by the idiot bootleggers who made White Trash Vol. 3. The second part is a spoken word piece by Manson, retelling a night out on the club scene (commonly listed as "Blood, Shit, and Cum," another title made up for White Trash Vol. 3). The final piece is commonly known as "Those Fuckin' Bitches" because is features a sample with that quote from the film Desperate Teenage Lovedolls.
