Alice Cooper @ GRF (part 2)

Alice Cooper

When I first saw Alice Cooper live, back in 1987, I wasn’t very familiar with his music. Sure I had heard “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out” on the radio growing up, but I didn’t own any of his albums. It was beginning in 1987 that I really got into his early material. I even ended up enjoying his early 80s material (which most people don’t) like “Special Forces,” “Dada,” and “Zipper Catches Skin” (although I haven’t heard them in ages now as they only recently came out on CD). However, nothing he has recorded after 1983 has been the least bit interesting to me.

I barely stomached “Brutal Planet,” “Hey Stoopid,” and “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” at GRF, but after “Cold Ethyl” I sensed a run on annoying songs would be coming so I went to a different stage to watch Marduk instead. I, therefore, missed a bunch of (stupid IMO) songs before coming back out (as the building Marduk was playing in was far too hot to stay for their whole set) for “I Love the Dead,” “School’s Out,” and “Elected.” Maybe I’m the only one who would prefer “Steven,” “Ballad Of Dwight Fry,” and “Black Juju” over “Feed My Frankenstein,” “Poison,” and “Hey Stoopid,” but that’s just my taste.

    Your not alone when it comes to Alice’s early music, I like his early LP’s but no longer own them, have my favorite songs on the iPod though.
