Artist Biography Available in: Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction are a British hard rock group.
The band is the brainchild of Mark Manning, a former graphic artist and art editor of the now defunct flexipop magazine. The magazine folded back in 1982 but the hedonistic lifesytle of the frequenting rock and pop stars to the magazine' offices fueled his desire to experience the debauchery of life as a decadent rock star. Joining another music publication called Metal Fury as a graphic designer but would assume the alter ego, Zodiac Mindwarp at night. Zodiac soon left Metal Fury and formed the Love Reaction in 1985.
Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction play a sleazy style of commercial hard rock featuring big riffs and choruses, as was the trend in the band’s heyday of the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s. The camp lyrics are intended as self-parody, and can be seen as either humorous by those who "get the joke", or offensive by those who take them at face value, for their often lascivious and misogynist tone.
