I almost considered canning this one because of what happened eleven days ago – Slayer’s lead guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away due to liver cirrhosis. While it was a pretty disheartening event for a metal fan like myself, I’ve tried not to let it get to me too much. I never really know what to say about such events anyway.
Anyway, Slayer. One of the “Big Four of Thrash Metal” along with Anthrax, Megadeth and Metallica and generally the heaviest of the three. They’ve made some pretty good music (by my tastes anyway) over the years, but aren’t my favourite of the Big Four (that’s Anthrax).
Pineapple Dance Studios is a dance studio complex (big shock, I know) based in London, and subject of a docusoap back in 2010 called… well, Pineapple Dance Studios. It was on Sky which I didn’t have at the time, so I didn’t see it apart from the bits Harry Hill lampooned on TV Burp. I doubt I would have seen it even if I did have Sky though, apart from maybe out of a sense of morbid curiosity.
The two crossed over in episode 4 of the TV show, wherein some of their dancers performed in treacle for Slayer’s single “Beauty Through Order”. I’m sure the show can explain it better than I can.
And the end result? Through this link. No YT embed since it doesn’t seem to even exist on YT.
