In the ’70s, KISS raised the bar for self-promotion and merchandising. They also wrote some pretty good songs too. But this isn’t about those songs, or the licensing and merchandising empire that they’ve spawned. No, this is about Paul Stanley, the Star Child, the band’s front man. His onstage banter is frequently ridiculous, and SoundCloud user Christopher Armes has put together a 45-minute SoundCloud compilation of his patter over the years.
With four Alive albums and plenty of bootlegs to choose from from the band’s 40 year career, it seems like there’s got to be more than 45 minutes of Stanley speaking out there, but if there’s one way to make KISS music even less tolerable, it’s by taking away the music and just leaving their preening frontman in. Armes describes it as “great for ruining parties and torturing anyone who’s trying to sleep.” If you can make it through all 45 minutes of this, you’re a better person than I am. Check it out after the jump.
