A Terrible Rage





:: Christopher Rage - Hot Rocker ::

:: Christopher Rage - Freddie Pig ::

There's good music. There's bad music. There's music that makes you wonder why someone went to the trouble to make it. I couldn't tell you what Christopher Rage's intentions were; whether he set out to make fun of music by making music, (sort of like how when I dance, I am not dancing but actually mocking the art form of dance,) or whether he's extremely earnest and even more clueless. Either way, this stuff is terrible, and I am only putting up here for you to laugh at. You might already be laughing if you are familiar with gay porn, because my Googly searches taught me that the name Christopher Rage is also the nom-de-nasty of one of its many fine actors.

This whole thing might be a joke by one Carter Cathcart, who gets production, arranging and instrumental credits for the whole album, but you wonder why he'd bother to credit a fake artist for the singing and songwriting. Then again, you have to wonder why Garth Brooks invented Goth Brooks -- I mean, Chris Gaines. If there is a conspiracy, the internets won't confirm it -- I can't get any search results using Carter's name and "rage." If it's not a joke, then I guess there's someone out there weirder and with less range than Gary Wilson.

The first song here is called something no song should ever be called, "Hot Rocker." Because I am kinder and have more sense than Christoper Rage, (the singer, not the gay porn star, who for all I know could be the Mother Teresa of ball-swingers), I have edited this in half. The second song is foul, and included here because of the phrase "porcine snatch." If you are a fan of electronic animal sound effects, you will find some joy here. I know this is a hell of a thing to lay on you on a Monday, so forgive me.

This singing Christopher Rage IS the legendary porn director/actor. He occasionally sang in his videos - sometimes in really bad drag. His vids were extreme and rather disgusting

I have a hard time believing that, but at the very least it makes me wish I'd written the article the way I had originally intended to, which was from the standpoint that it was the porn guy. Some of these songs go back to 1977, according to the liner notes - how old is the porn Rage?

Songs as early as 1977 would be believable. Christopher Rage was born in 1958 and produced and starred in gay fetish videos throughout the 1970s and 80s. He died in 1991.

Sorry, I mistyped. Rage was born in 1948.

I knew and was a friend of Christopher Rage (not the name he was using then) via the theater dept. at Georgetown Univ. in the late 1960s. He was already writing (both words and music) then, and performed in many musicals while at Georgetown. My favorite of his that I saw was playing The Boy in The Fantasticks, the role of a sweet young man if ever there was one. Considering the path he took after college as The King of Sleaze, it's a performance I treasure in my mind. In college he was singing, acting, and producing, but I thought he was most talented as a writer, and I think that was borne out throughout his life. And yes, he was born in 1948 and died in 1991.
