The Labiancas (band)

"New Spahn Ranch" writes-


Hi Liz, Patty & Matt,

I love your Manson Family blog and I just wanted to share something for possible inclusion.  

There is an amazing new NY-based "Charles Manson concept band" that claims to be a new component of the Manson Family.  They seem incredibly well versed in the intricacies of the case (going so far as to assert that they have "the little black book" that Leno LaBianca allegedly possessed, thereby hinting at their support of that theory/motive) and their songs are all centered around the events that transpired.  I personally think it is some sort of postmodern performance art project but I can't speak for them; I suppose it is possible that they genuinely believe as it says on their site that "Charles Manson is Jesus Christ."

You can check out their blog and songs here:  http://thelabiancasband.tumblr.com/
And then there is their first video, in which singer JJ Brine plays Manson and Lena Marquise appears to portray Sharon Tate:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyhLBzOYwC0

Hope you guys get a kick out of this; I thought it was simply too good to go unnoticed!

Best,

They think Matthew Roberts is Charlie's son lol. Well interesting take on Ill Never Say Never To Always but Helter Skelter is just awful.

Tumblr is a funny place.

Yes, Leigh Tumblr is a funny,strange, place. These people have a margin of talent that would be better served doing something other than idolizing and glorifing a life long criminal. I won't be going back to check for updates!

Oh Jeez, "Join Us".. more like buy our album and like us on Facebook LOL!

If those X's on their foreheads were carved in their foreheads with a real knife they may be more believable.

Embarrassed for them. Terrible hipster music. They couldn't even get the X location correct in the photos.

Not saying they should stop making music, just try something different that isn't this.

These two are brilliant! I think they're taking a postmodern spin on the "family" concept rather than glorifying Charles Manson or the crimes. It's sort of revolutionary, actually. I hope they stick with it.
