now that you mention it, i think this image was drawn from the cocteau version of 'beauty and the beast". it was also some inspiration in disney circles, of course. if you haven't seen that film, go find it. it's amazing. watch it with your girlfriend. she'll love you forever.
i saw them do a show at the cascade ballroom in tacoma. it was an old wooden structure and creakier than hell, an old uso dance hall. st. vitus and soundgarden and the u-men opened for them.
at the height of the madness, the nude go-go dancer started slashing stuffed animals with a knife and spewing the styrofoam 'guts' all over the hall- sticking to everybody's sweat. the two drummers were hair flying in unison, the autopsy films were at full bore(remember the sex change operation film? charming). and gibby was pouring lighter fliud onto the cymbals and lighting it with a bic lighter and smashing it with a stick. the flames licked the wooden beams on the ceiling and was leaving soot and black streaks all over it. he did it again and again and again, all the while the band was lurching and screeching and pounding (and he still was managing to sing into that damned bullhorn contraption he had). the place emptied out. everybody cleared the room because they thought it was gonna burn down.
gibby kept it up until he ran out of fliud.
not even a good show, actually. the central tavern or the gorilla gardens shows were hallucinagenic.
