MOTLEY CRUE Members Give Thumbs Up To MARAZENE MACHINE “LIVE WIRE” Cover
Chicago’s MARAZENE MACHINE (formerly MARAZENE) have been “swooning” over the recently posted comments by rock legends TOMMY LEE and NIKKI SIXX about the bands digital single cover of “LIVE WIRE.” Described as an “edgy electronic/whiskey/sex-fueled rendition of the MOTLEY CRUE classic,” “LIVE WIRE” is currently available at iTunes or for free download (with email signup) for a limited time at the following location. [ http://www.reverbnation.com/MarazeneMachine ]. Get a look at their video below.
TOMMY LEE was first to notice the track over the weekend. “Fucking wicked version” he tweeted on the social networking juggernaut TWITTER
“Killer” NIKKI SIXX was quick to concur in a retweet.
Needless to say, MARAZENE MACHINE members are humbled to have been mentioned at all.
“It’s a grounded/stuck-in-his-room-for-a-YEAR kids dream come true to hear this kind of acknowledgement from a couple guys I deeply admire..” offered vocalist and multi-instrumentalist DIETRICH THRALL. “I think I’m going to wallpaper my studio with print outs.”
“Always a good feeling to get the ‘nod’ for a cover song from the guys who wrote it!” commented vocalist and multi-instrumentalist NIKK SKUM.
More recently the band survived the recent passing of original drummer and co-founder Kristopher “Kristov” Kemp to cancer which threatened to end their run outright. MARAZENE MACHINE abruptly went silent only to emerge after a self-imposed mourning period with an archive of 40+ songs which are on deck to be released in the coming months as digital singles and future albums.
There’s a new album in the works set for Fall 2011 release so make sure you keep an eye out for this band.
