Biography

Scott Mitchell Putesky, along with co-conspirator Brian Warner, founded Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids in 1990. Warner re-christened himself Marilyn Manson, combining the names of Charles Manson and Marilyn Monroe to represent the dichotomy of pop cultural iconography. Putesky morphed Daisy Duke with David Berkowitz (the infamous “Son of Sam”) to arrive at his own nom-de-plume.

Warner brought to the table his twisted lyrical poetry, undeveloped vocal skills, and a promotional savvy that would eventually propel the band into the national spotlight, while Scott contributed musical talent. The instrumentation on the early demos was completely written, performed, and recorded solely by Scott. Even after Olivia Newton Bundy and Zsa Zsa Speck rounded out the initial lineup so that the band could take their bizarre songs out before an audience, Scott continued to do all of the recording in the studio.

As the band’s early lineup solidified with the additions of Gidget Gein on bass, Madonna Wayne Gacy on keyboards, and Sarah Lee Lucas on drums, Scott continued to be the primary song-writer while leading the musical direction of the band. As the credits on Portrait Of An American Family acknowledge, Scott wrote or co-wrote (along with Gein) every song except for the intro and Sweet Tooth.
