I Was A Teenage Satan Worshipper

I Was a Teenage Satan WorshipperI Was A Teenage Satan Worshipper is an electronic punk / indie rock outfit based in Helsinki, Finland. Although their name suggests otherwise, the Finnish quartet of My Lovin’ Martian, Blackie Loveless, Nekrokitten, and Sigmund Droid have nothing to do with death metal, human sacrifices, drinking the blood of virgins and the like – hell, they don’t even burn churches! On the contrary, their music varies between the gritty industrial sounds of the past to the punchy sounds of electropop. Equally influenced by The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, New Order, Ladytron, and Suicide (their track Martin is dedicated to Martin Rev), IWATSW combine Commodore 64 bleeps with distorted guitars and motherboard-ish vocals.

Here’s their own definition of their sound: “Think about sex, think about graveyards, panic, the color pink, drinking wine in the park, leather, robots, disco romance, sweat, and candy. Think about Johnny Thunders on speed. Kim Gordon and Kim Deal shopping together. Think about sex.” Now that sounds promising, doesn’t it?
