After hearing a Whitehouse track on a compilation CD, I was prompted to purchase: 'Thank Your Lucky Stars.' At the time, I thought "Hungry For Pain" and "My Cock's On Fire" were two of the greatest tracks ever. At the time, I was also listening to: Sleep Chamber, Hafler Trio (Fuck, Master Of Money) Leather Strip, Women Of The SS and so on.

My next purchase was, 'Cream Of The Second Coming.' This was mostly purchased for the track, "The 150 Murderous Passions." I was also discovering Nurse With Wound back in the late 80's and the NWW/WH split was so expensive back then. I was somewhat intrigued as to why Mr. Stapleton wanted to work with WH and what they would sound like. Not having much access to musical information back then, it wasn't until a few years after this purchase that I discovered the many differences between the NWW/WH split and this WH offering.

I had turned my attention away from Whitehouse until last month when I purchased the re-issue of, 'Cruise.' A clean polished sound compared to my first two purchases. I'm glad that I have it, but I can also say it may very well be another ten years or more before I purchase something WH again (excluding accidentally finding something in the cheap bin).

Back in the day, I knew a few people who felt like they needed to purchase everything Whitehouse. Instead of following along, I turned my attention toward groups like: Controlled Bleeding, NoN, Skinny Puppy, Severed Head and so on......and my record collection is better off for it!

I love what WH does. Mummy And Daddy fucking blows me away every time I hear it. It IS "difficult" music, just as Night + Fog is difficult (yet essential) viewing. WH is neccessary.

The early stuff, Birthdeath, Erector etc....it's dark ambient. Not extreme noise. WH has gone through many different styles. I like the last couple of releases. Looks like Best is out now, and WB is doing something Whitehouse.....can't wait to see what he comes up with.

I only have Birthdeath Experience but rarely listen to it.
Got a few other albums on MP3 I never listened to so far.

not that interesting of a band to me

I've often thought that WH had the balls to do songs that we dare not even imagine. Or maybe, we DO think about such songs, we conjure up some dark vile things in our dirty minds.....and WH says "fuck it, here it is then." They shine a light onto a very dark corner that is there! No pretending that the world isn't fucked or evil at times. No hiding or sweeping things under the carpet. No Celine Dion here. This is raw, pure and scary shit.....and it fucking blows me away. When WB screams "I'm coming up your ass", you know you've wanted to sing that song before. You know you like it.

So there.

Two very different albums from different eras. It took me a while to "appreciate" GWD. Seemed too literal or wankery at first. Then it hit me. Oh how it fucking hit me.

Uh... somewhere in the east end. They were headlining, Consumer Electronics played as well. Small place. I don't remember seeing anything else there. No use, sorry.

they dont do gigs anymore right?
anyway, i feel i should register my support, if you listen to their stuff with headphones on they make some pretty nice stereo sounds combined with the hateful ranting.

I have Birthdeath Experience and Great White Death, not bad, but when it coems to that early industrial stuff I much prefer TG, SPK, NWW's early stuff, Sutcliffe Jugend, MB..... I'm not put off by his works intent, I am just somewhat ambivalent - that being said I don't think it's bad......
