Lollipop Lust Kill Is an American Alternative metal/Heavy metal band.

Band history

Lollipop Lust Kill was formed in 1996 in Toledo, Ohio with the original line-up including DeadGreg, Dr. Distorto, Evvy Pedder, D. human, and drummer Bloody Sunday. Prior to Evvy (Pedder's) 1996 induction into the fold, the band had resided under the moniker 'Candy Killers'. The name 'Lollipop Lust Kill' was derived partly from a desire by the original members to incorporate a sugar-coated, tongue-in-cheek feel to the band's name, with the 'lust kill' portion inspired sporadically from a description of serial killer John Wayne Gacy in the 'Encyclopedia of Serial Killers' as a 'lust killer' read aloud one smoked-out night by Pedder to the rest of the band. "Lollipop Lust Kill" was born. Bloody Sunday would be replaced by R. Cynic prior to the release of 'Motel Murder Madness' with the departed drummer's brother Killer K. joining the band on keyboards during this time.

The band played their first show at the popular Toledo, Ohio haunt Frankies with a band named Toilet, which included future keyboardist Killer K. on guitar. They would continue to play in and around Toledo establishing a rabid and loyal fan base colloquially known as 'The Lollipop Guild'.

In 2000, Lollipop Lust Kill self-released their full-length debut, Motel Murder Madness, which catapulted them into the top ten of Their major label debut, My So Called Knife, was released by Artemis Records in June 2002, but it was met with lukewarm sales.

Prior to the release of My So Called Knife (a word-play on the show My So Called Life), drummer R. Cynic and guitarist Dr. Distorto changed their stage names to Knits and Pill respectively.

In March 2004, guitarist DeadGreg and bassist D. human announced their departure from the band, citing personal reasons. Keyboardist Killer K. would follow suit a few weeks later. The band auditioned several potential replacement bassists before settling on Jay Jay and guitarist Brian Tilse, formerly of Rob Halford's outfit Fight. The reformed band attempted to write and record a follow-up to My So Called Knife for several months, before deciding to call it quits in June 2004. Jay Jay and Tilse proceeded to start the band Glass Pipe Suicide with Knits, and they recorded some demos which were made available for free online before disbanding sometime in 2005.

LLK played their final show at the popular Toledo venue Headliners on June 4, 2004. The original six members (those that comprised the band during the release of Motel Murder Madness) reunited for this farewell show to the accolades of several thousand friends and fans from around the country. Perhaps in a fitting final tribute, vocalist Evvy Pedder invited the audience onto the stage to participate in the traditional closing song 'Balls Out' "Lollipop style". In the mayhem that ensued, a portion of the stage collapsed: a fitting testament to the violent imagery forwarded by the band made manifest.

Guitarist Pill and vocalist Evvy Pedder would attempt to resurrect the band with new members over the next several months, but to no avail.

The future of Lollipop Lust Kill remains in doubt. Pedder, the only remaining member, still harbors aspirations to bring their particular style of murderous musical mayhem to the masses as a solo artist, but his web-site Evvy Thomas, has not been updated in over two years.

Notably, LLK toured with Coal Chamber, American Head Charge, Ministry and motograter, Dog Fashion Disco and Kittie.

As of July 18th 2008, four original members (D. Human, DeadGreg, Pill, and Knits) agreed to start a new band and play together for the first time since the farewell show in 2004.


Their music is considered by many as Alternative metal with Rap Metal and Industrial metal influences. According to previous interviews, they consider themselves "murder rock"Fact|date=February 2007.
