Who originally said: I live for drugs. It's great. Just lately I freaked out on acid. I freaked out very very badly.

What is the source of the "I freaked out very, very badly -- I freaked out on acid" sample used by Thrill Kill Kult and Meat Beat Manifesto?

This question came up a few years ago, and was answered. Unfortunately, the answer was incorrect. That thread is now closed. I eventually found the Capitol LSD album on ebay, paid $40 for it, and listened to the damn thing. It's pretty cool and all, but it does not contain that dialog snippet. Boo.

So I am still looking. I've been trying to find this for about 15 years. Someone must know!

Meat Beat Manifesto's "Acid Again" contains the following:

Question: Are you really happy?

Answer: I'm happier than I've ever been. I'm not happy. I'm not happy at all, really. Or I'm very sad. I'm not happy. I'm still fat. I don't feel very pretty, I really don't.

Question: You know a lot about drugs...

Answer: Oh, I live for drugs. It's great. Just lately I freaked out on acid. I freaked out very very badly. Now I don't think I'll ever taken acid again and before I thought that was the best thing in the world. I never want it again. Never acid again.


My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult's "Daisy Chain for Satan" contains a few additional snippets from the interviewee such as "I'm the white rabbit," "My friends turn me on," and "I could never afford it, I would never buy drugs."

Google does not have the answer to this question. Trust me on that. So this is going to require someone who knows the answer but has not yet entered it into any of the tubes on the internets.

I don't think the people in the band even know. But someone does... Are you out there?

Once upon a time, the Internet had within its borders a database of samples, matching movies or TV shows against songs. I spent a while browsing through specifically looking for TKK material and never could find that sample. You are not the only one. Perhaps someone cleverer than I could find it on the Wayback Machine - I don't even remember the name of it.

I've had the surreal experience of watching movies and suddenly stumbling across material sampled by various bands, but not that particular one. My guess is, from the lingo used, you're looking for a movie prior to 1980. I'd start with IMDB, restricting your search to the years 1965 to 1980, then look for keywords like "LSD" or "acid" and then "fat."

JOOOO-ooannn ... bitch! I'm gonna find 'er ... and then I'm gonna kill 'er.

Just to save time for people, I think most of the information from that original database, which is long gone, made its way into this one (at least, the biosphere information matched what I remember the original database having just about exactly). The requested TKK/MBM sample is not there, though.

According to what I consider to be the definitive resource on TKK samples, dunno.

Jack Dangers says he gets most of his vocal samples from spoken word records. I don't think he really likes to give his sources away. Supposedly he gets a bunch of his stuff from Saturn Records, here in Oakland.

The source that I had heard, and am now unable to find a citation for, was that it came from an interview with one of the Manson women, likely Squeaky Fromme.

Everything I've researched this morning is proving me wrong but in high school I had thought that the samples from "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (Acid and Flowers mix)" were from "Riot on the Sunset Strip" (1967) The end of the film deals with a mental breakdown that a woman has as a result of being gang raped while on LSD. I saw it on cable (showtime?) in the middle of the night. Aside from a few clips on you tube, it does not appear to be for sale.

Here's a bootleg of Riot on the Sunset Strip. If they aren't going to leave it in print, might as well grab it. Let us (or at least me) know if that's the source of the sample, I'd be interested to find out.

Thanks, adipocere! I'm going to get a copy.

I made a mux mix with the two songs that sample this: ilivefordrugs.muxtape.com.
