Occupational hazards

Getting flicked in the testicles, asked if you're "a poop man, a scat guy" and ambushed in the dark by a man pointing a very realistic fake gun at the back of your neck: all in a day's work for the Guardian's Alexis Petridis - or at least it is when his interviewee is Marilyn Manson.

While he's always engaging in conversation, I can't say I've given much time to Manson's music since Mechanical Animals. That said, his description of new record Heaven Upside Down as "hard, punk rock, Killing Joke, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Scary Monsters" does sound intriguing.
