Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Cherrie Blue - Chemical Messiah (2002)

Here is an artist who has been involved with two of my fave bands ever, Lords Of Acid and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, both raunchy techno-meets-industrial-meets-disco-meets-pop-meets- the-kitchen-sink geniuses. Cherrie Blue is the stage name of Ruth McArdle, who has also used the stage name Lady Galore. Her first taste of fame was as the vocalist on Lords Of Acid's album Voodoo U, as well as on the Voodoo U tour. The group toured with My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult (I would have KILLED to see this concert!) and Cherrie defected from the band to join the Kult's female entourage The Bomb Gang Girlz. While with the Kult she collaborated with their mastermind Buzz McCoy, and the result was this album, which was released on the Kult's own label, Sleazebox Records. The music here is very reminiscent of both the Lords and the Kult, with perhaps a more female influence. Danceable house, techno and rock grooves combine to make a very strange and fun musical journey. Obviously this was not made to appeal to a mass audience, which makes it all the better. According to her Myspace site, Cherrie is working on a new album, Shamaness Warrior Princess, with a new producer, and I, for one, can't wait! And expect to see more from the Lords and Kult camps in the future, and check out the work of those two groups. If you like this, you'll like them, and they are an Isle MUST!!!

  5. I wish she would have completed / released the Shamanistic Warrior Princess cd. You are welcome for the video I'm getting ready to up the entire concert soon without the nightvision on it. I figured it has been long enough.
