    There's been a good series on BBC UK TV on Matisse, Warhol and Picasso (Dali next week) .. half way through the picasso program they mention a sailor top he started wearing. This was after he became famous and something which Warhol adopted soon after to put him in-line with the look of an artist.

    This reminded me of the top Manson wore for 'Are you the rabbit' performance at hurricane 2007 (and probably at other gigs but certainly not all of them). It isn't something Manson would normally wear so it easily stuck out in my mind and it had somehow always looked familiar..now I can see why.

    Something I pasted together to illustrate:


    ----------------

    Studying drama in the first year, there was brief talk of the theatre of the absurd and Beckett's 'Not I' was briefly mentioned. Immediate thoughts of You and Me And the Devil Makes Three came up ..




    However it nearly falls apart when seeing it on video in that you can see the movements are not similar... but the overall look is:


    Have mostly heard the performance of Devil Makes 3 in relation to Rocky Horror, and that's probably more accurate - given the recent MansonWiki interview with Tony Silvia who mentions recording it and mentioning it to be like Wonderlands' Cheshire cat and Rocky Horror - no mention of 'Not I' ... so whilst maybe unintentional it's a nice link anyway given that Manson's performances are rather absurd anyway.

    He wore that shirt for pretty much every encore on the European Festival leg of the Rape of The World Tour. (This includes The Love Song, The Nobodies, Are You The Rabbit?, and Eat Me, Drink Me.) Usually, the shirt was worn in a combonation of him standing on the giant chair, with the exception of Eat Me, Drink Me.

    Thanks Zsa Zsa and Norse. That vid can be pretty hypnotic after a while.

    I've always thought 'She Wants Revenge's self titled album and 'Eat Me, Drink Me' shared some visual similarities, particularly in the album booklet. Like 'Eat Me, Drink Me', the butcher's knife is a reoccurring prop assisting with the imagery.


    The girl 'Dressed in White' is also a reoccurring character in both these albums, as seen in the pictures below;




    I also thought the promotional photographs for these two albums had a similar feel to them,
    with the historical settings, the way they're dressed and the overall dark tone they have.

    Hmmm I think that might be a stretch. ^ But you never know.

    I didn't say either of them could've been inspired by another, but just that I was reminded of EM, DM because of a couple of similarities.
