In recent years, Chicago’s ultrasweaty industrial dance dorkstorm, THE GOTHSICLES, have played some of the most talked about live shows at some of the most premiere industrial music festivals around the globe. Compounding a ruinous mix of crass humor, video games and geek culture with an unapologetic EBM affinity, The Gothsicles’ 2011 release “Industrialites & Magic” (WTII Records) reached the #1 spot on Amazon.com for “Most Downloaded” in the “Goth & Industrial” category.

I come in at about 2:00.

Pre-order the new album from Self Implied Restrictions here:

my rhyme:
here be dragons
and dirty wenches
i just came ashore
with my pirate henchman

moosh my peg leg
up on your ass fat
my parrot says
“grr roook polly wanna tap that”

call ‘overboard’
‘cause i’m drowning in snatch
i just ran out of condoms
so i’m using my eye patch

dat ASStrolabe
you put the poon in harpoon
wanna get my cutlass
in your hatchet wound

i’m the high voiced
high seas
maritime felon
ride me around the globe
like your name was magellan

i’ll plunder dat booty
like i’m plundering ships
and dig out the treasure
from your pussy lips

put my dolphin fin
on your whale tale
blow me so hard
that we set sail

you’ll scream a siren song
when we’re having sex
i mark my maps with triple x
