Former Marilyn Manson/Jack Off Jill Guitarist Daisy Berkowitz Passes Away

Scott Mitchell Putesky, more famously known as Daisy Berkowitz, the co-founding guitarist of the Marilyn Manson (originally Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,) and later of Jack Off Jill, has passed away according to a number of his friends and bandmates. A posting on the Jack Off Jill Facebook page stated; “Saying good bye to Scott, friend, band mate, artist , hero.. RIP Scott – “always touched by your presence dear.” Daisy Berkowitz.” An official cause of death has yet to be revealed but in 2013, Putesky was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Putesky formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in 1989 with the eponymous singer (AKA Brian Warner,) after meeting at an after party at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He remained with the group recording the album, “Portrait of an American Family” and the EP “Smells Like Children,” before leaving halfway through the recording of “Antichrist Superstar” due to creative differences, though he does appear on the record. He would then join Jack Off Jill in 1998 and went on to record the album, “Covetous Creature” with the group and made a guest appearance with Godhead, before recording some albums with Three Ton Gate.

Hideous Rebirth Posts “Desecration Seance” Lyric Video

Barbaric death-grinders Hideous Rebirth just premiered lyric video single “Desecration Seance,” taken from the group’s forthcoming album, “La Fosa Comun.”

“It’s about disgruntled spirits,” states bassist/vocalist Cris Gutierrez, “luring us into their realm in order to take over our physical bodies and take their revenge on humanity. ‘La Fosa Común” is a burial ground of unidentified people’s who never really rested properly, so this ties into the album perfectly. Lyrics mixed with rituals, spirits, and brutality make a good fit for Hideous Rebirth.”

New album “La Fosa Comun” is set for release October 27th, 2017 via Gore House Productions on CD and digital formats. Pre-orders are online here.
