TOTALLY FUCKING GAY: Swallow Sperm: CD

Totally Fucking Gay plays in-your-face, pansexual-friendly shock tunes. Self-described as “queer sonic rebellion,” the silly lyrics are about sexual antics and destroying Republicans, while the music is a discordant electronic-heavy mix of dance beats and punk. This certainly isn’t for everyone, but I laughed out loud at the audaciousness, particularly on the tracks “I Don’t Know Anyone Who Is Straight” and “Marilyn Manson I Will Suck Your Dick.” The packaging is as crucial as the contents therein, as it’s illustrated by the legendary Mike Diana, the only artist in American history to successfully be convicted of obscenity. The new documentary about Mike Diana, Boiled Angels, is a must-see. Directed by legendary horror film director Frank Henenlotter of Basket Case, Brain Damage, and Frankenhooker fame, Boiled Angels will make your blood boil. Those of us who donated to the Boiled Angels Kickstarter campaign received personal portraits of ourselves, drawn by Diana himself, a mind numbingly cool perk. Swallow Sperm includes an 11 x 17 poster of Mike Diana’s Swallow Sperm album artwork. Also available are six 7”-sized risographs of the different sections of the poster. A cool way to support both a nifty musical act and an important visual artist, check out Totally Fucking Gay’s demented website for various ordering options. –Art Ettinger (Self-released, totallyfuckinggay.com)
