This week saw the release of Rob Zombie’s brand new album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor. To my ears, it’s the best music he’s put out in a very long time. First single Dead City Radio kicks serious butt, as does his cover of Grand Funk’s We’re An American Band. And while I have no idea what it’s all about, one of the album’s coolest tracks is Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga. Rob’s not so secret weapon is guitarist John 5, who has more licks than a Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Cone. The vinyl, no surprise, sound especially sweet, but the cd comes with fantastic album art, which, if you’re a Rob Zombie fan, is always a must have.
On that note, we’ve got three copies of Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor on cd to give away, courtesy of our friends at Universal Music Canada. To win, you’ve got to
a) like our Facebook page here
b) follow us on Twitter here and,
c) answer this skill testing question: which Velvet Underground song is featured at the end of Rob Zombie’s new movie, The Lords of Salem? Clue – you can find it in part two of our interview with Rob Zombie here. Submit your answer in the comments section or via Twitter, using hashtag #RZBBP.
The contest closes at 11:59pm Sunday April 28th. Three random winners will win 1 (one) cd copy of Rob Zombie’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.
Now throw the horns and enter to win!
