If you grew up in the late 90's/early 2000's you'll have experienced the inescapable rise of nu-metal and it's flamboyant parade of artists, whether your CD collection reflected it or not. With their black nails, multiple facial piercings, whiter than white make-up and shock value music videos, it came to define a musical era like no other.
Synonymous to the rise in popularity of this music and the pioneering artists were market stalls up and down the UK flogging knock off merchandise featuring artwork from the latest releases.
Amongst these artists at the time was the undisputed king of the scene, Marilyn Manson. He was the man the press loved to hate, scapegoated from the US to the UK for any number of headline news stories involving goth teens and could on any given day be single handedly held accountable for the 'satanic panic' - quite possibly the worst excuse for parents not being able to understand their kids music tastes...
This aside, Manson's music, album artwork, videos and stage presence spoke for itself, with an instantly recognisable macabre style and unabashed 'fuck you' nature, he reigned King of the 2000's metal scene.
No stranger to collaborating with the artists that inspire them, LA's PLEASURES have linked up with the likes of Kurt Cobain (unofficially, for that t shirt), Grateful Dead and Joy Division in recent years.
For 2020, PLEASURES link up with the goth overlord himself, Marilyn Manson, on a capsule collection sure to delight those who relish in some early 2000s metal nostalgia.
Tackling legendary artwork from Manson's formative releases, including the 1995 EP Smells Like Children and 2004's Best Of release; Lest We Forget we see iconic Manson imagery displayed across t shirts making for an impactful release. With heavy Manson imagery, given a suitable PLEASURES twist, the PLEASURES x Manson collection is available soon at The Chimp Store.
