The amazing Cookie Mongoloid, a Sesame Speed Metal band with a touch of Devo, will be touring the UK in April, but you can catch them before they leave on Saturday night, March 5th at 12 Galaxies. To give you a bite of this Cookie, here are some photos I shoot from 2003 and 2002.
See the Cookie Mongoloid in all his blue, furry, googly-eyed glory backed by the baddest of gender mixed metal bands as they decimate and regurgitate your childhood favorites in an abrasive metal wrath. See their harem of gothic gyrators, the Cookies, demonstrate such elemental concepts as up and down in a blaze of lights, smoke and pyrotechnic cookie shrapnel.
Silke Tudor sums them up quite well:
Cookie Mongoloid is the ultimate in Sesame Street violation. It’s all your favorite childhood songs… souped up and turned out by homicidal maniacs armed with cookie cannons.
When he sheds the blue fur and shakes off the cookie crumbs, Cookie Mongoloid frontman Loid Mongoloid can be found heading up the Devo mutations Mongoloid and Mongolounge.
