The mid eighties were a funny time for rock 'n roll. The charts may have been filled with quasi electronic pop but down in the underground a revolution of sorts was brewing. The US west coast had chipped in hard with Motley Crue and Guns 'n Roses, whilst the UK was expanding the envelope of decency with the Cult, Rogue Male and…Zodiac Mindwarp. The brainchild of front man Mark Manning, a former music magazine editor, and professional raconteur, Zodiac Mindwarp & the Love Reaction (to give the project its full name) was designed with one experience in mind; to make a mint, and live the dream. For a full five minutes it looked as though Manning might just have pulled it off if it wasn't for the fact that the public thought otherwise. 'Tattoed Beat Messiah', originally released in March 1988, appeared like a lightning bolt out of the blue. Choc full of low down riffs (courtesy of the wonderfully monikered Cobalt Stargazer), sleazy grooves, cantankerous lyrics and a swagger that suggested they'd been working the circuit for years instead of months, the critics knelt and kissed the feet of rock 'n roll's latest great deceiver. 'TTBM', even after passage of nearly 20 years, remains one of rock's most impressive and exciting statements, issued at a time when everyone seemed to be second guessing where rock 'n roll was heading. Buckle up and enjoy the ride one more time. Special Collector's Edition includes 16 page full colour booklet - Original and enhanced artwork with new photos and extensive
memorabilia with full involvement from the band and Zodiac Mindwarp - also 9 unreleased Bonus tracks and a 4,000 word essay.
