Amazing vocalist, whether its Goth/Glam/Industrial/Rock

"It is an absolute shame that Psychotica no longer exists, and that vocalist Patrick Briggs has eased back into Nightclub ownership. What an amazing vocal talent! Wild and weird, with a Marilyn Manson like gothic undertone and David Bowie Glam, I just don't understand why Psychotica never went further. They performed at Lollapalooza in '97, and that was pretty much the end. Patrick had a tendency to perform almost naked, though at Lollapalooza he wore a silver jumpsuit a'la Devo. He was on the edge of acceptable behavior, but so very talented, bringing in Pianists and Bagpipes and symphonies behind his unique music. After Espina, they recorded one more album, `Pandemic', that never got released. There are MP3's out on the internet from Pandemic, and I strongly urge you to find them and get them before they disappear. Pandemic has a Georgio Morodor (Cat People Soundtrack) remix of MacArthur Park, along with three not-to-be-missed ballads that Patrick's vocals just make you want to cry on. Valentino, Euthanasia, and Monsoon. FIND PANDEMIC! You won't be sorry. As for Espina, I think it is even better than Psychotica's self titled first CD. `Ding Dong Dead' is just good ol' goth fun, `Feb 14th 1979' is an oddball song with fun lyrics and changing melodies. But with Patrick's voice, I tend to lean towards his ballads (and I'm not a ballad lover), `Too Late' and `Soldier Of War'. Amazing CD, amazing vocals. If you like goth/glam/odd rock, don't miss this soon-to-be-gone treasure."

""Espina" isn't nearly as brilliant as Psychotica's self titled album, but their cover of MacArthur Park is amazing. How anyone can make such a horrible song sound so incredible is beyond me, but they do. This and a couple of other gems such as Psychopharmacologist make this album worth owning."
