Robert Priddy's Son Was Into Kink

Robert Priddy's Son Was Into Kink

Robert Priddy's son, Kai Nicolai Priddy, belonged to a Norweigan Band called “Vampire State Building” (Ref). Amusingly, while Kai Nicolai Priddy was a member of this band, they were using theatrics like dildos and transvestites in their performances (Ref).

Vampire State Building

Vampire State Building was a hard rocking techno/industrial/goth band with an original sound that incorporated many different styles. Calm atmospheric interludes give way to all hell breaking out, techno landscapes are punctuated by strange samples, sweet female vocals compete with grinding beats. Their two singles are, unexpectedly enough, covers of Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Bronski Beat songs, and their poppy version of the latter ("Smalltown Boy") became a hit on Norwegian radio. The cliché fits: Expect the unexpected with Vampire State Building.

An important part of Vampire State Building was their live shows, which were real productions. The visual played as important a role in the show as the audio, which was all live. Video projections and dancers brought a theatrical bend to the performance, while onstage elements such as transvestites, dildos, knives and strange (and sometimes comical) costumes were a part of the ever-changing mix. The band played in Scandinavia and Germany in the '90s, including a show at the 1994 Roskilde Festival that was packed beyond capacity.

The Norwegian band was only active a few years, and unofficially disbanded after working on their second album, which was to be released in 1997. However, they attracted a lot of attention, and they are a band that was ahead of their time in their music, performance, and image. Members of Vampire State Building have gone on to enjoy success in Zeromancer, Lonely Crowd, and Red Harvest.

Kai Priddy also worked as an Engineer for Seigmen's song, "Korstoget" (Ref). That song appeared on the following CD, the cover of which depicts a nude man covering his penis with his hands. I wonder what Pseudo-Moralist Robert Priddy would have to say about that?

Is it any surprise why Robert Priddy never publicly talks about his own son's music group? Apparently, Robert Priddy doesn't want everyone to know his son's involvement with kink (especially the dildos and tranvestites part). Similarly, Robert Priddy doesn't want everyone to know about his son's involvement with astrology (especially when he trashes and bashes people for their “lunatic fringe” and primitive spiritual beliefs not rooted in sound science).

Tsk. Too bad Mr. Priddles. It's public domain :)
