JEORDIE WHITE | BASE TENDENCIES
Good news -- the band are reportedly now in preproduction for their next album (which, according to what Manson has said in recent interviews, will be more beat/drum oriented), and recording should begin sometime later this year. Also, rumors are floating about that Manson and his Merry Men will join the line-up for the "Come All Ye Faithful" (f/k/a Black Christmas) tour, which features Ozzy Osbourne in the headlining slot and is set to kick off on October 31st. So far, Rob Zombie and Mudvayne have signed on as supporting acts, and there is one more band (this, I take it, is where Manson figures into the scenario) to be announced. However, with the band's show in Los Angeles touted as an "end of tour" show, combined with the fact that Manson has previously stated that there will not be another tour until the release of the new album, I would be surprised if they did indeed hitch a ride on this roadtrip. But...since Manson has been known at times to say one thing and do another, I thought I'd mention this anyway.
Itís just been announced that Marilyn Manson will do a special end-of-tour show at L.A.ís Grand Olympic Auditorium, which will be filmed for an upcoming DVD.

At yesterday's Kerrang! Awards, Marilyn Manson came out on top in the Best Album (Holy Wood) category. Having a day off in London, all of the band were in attendance at the awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, followed by an after party, held at the Rock club.
Picked up the "Rock Star" soundtrack yesterday and gave a listen to Twiggy's "Blood Pollution" -- kick ass!! Haven't listened to the rest of the CD yet, but this tune alone makes it worth having.
Marilyn Manson are again among the nominees in the Kerrang! 2001 Awards, nominated in the Best International Act, Best Album (Holy Wood) and Best Band in the World categories. The awards will be handed out this Tuesday, August 28th.
If you're in the UK, MTV2 will reportedly be airing the Ozzfest "Cribs" featuring Twiggy. However, exactly when it will be aired is the question. Some reports say it will be tonight at 8:30 p.m., others say that it will be shown at 10:30, and yet another source gives the time as 8:30 p.m. Sunday, to be repeated at 11:30 p.m. next Thursday. All I can say is to check your local listings.
A new date has been added to the overseas leg of the tour, with the band performing in Dublin, Ireland at The Point on September 5th. This show is reportedly slated to be filmed for an upcoming DVD.
The soundtrack for the film "Rockstar" is now set for an August 28th release on the Posthuman/Priority label. Twiggy's contribution is a track called "Blood Pollution", which is one of five original songs performed by the film's fictional rock band, Steel Dragon. The movie is due to hit theatres on September 7th.
If you haven't yet seen the Ozzfest "Cribs" episode with Twiggy, MTV will be repeating it at the following times: August 3rd at 6:30 p.m., August 7th at 6:30 p.m. and August 8th at 10:00 p.m. All times are EST/PST.
A review of Monday's Montreal show at the Metropolis Club has been added to the Tour page.
