Alice Cooper: Zipper Catches Skin (1982)

This is number three of Cooper's four blackout albums, or records that he has no memory of making. The others are Flush the Fashion, Special Forces, and Dada. I find that fascinating. I remember David Bowie saying once that he had no memory of making Station To Station. It's amazing what drugs and alcohol can do to the brain.

It makes me wonder how either of them managed to write the songs in the first place. In this case, the question leads to the unavoidable answer that Cooper probably doesn't want to remember writing this record. It just isn't very good, or perhaps it's simply better left to the die-hard Alice fans.
