Ed Gein also inspired various songs: e.g. "Ed Gein for President" by the Belgian Grindcore group Hybrid Viscery, "Gein" by Ry Legit, "Dead Skin Mask" by Slayer, "Nothing to Gein" by Mudvayne, "Old Mean Ed Gein" by The Fibonaccis, "Jessica "by Dir En Gray," Nipple Belt "by Tad," Skinned "by Blind Melon or" Lotion "by Greenskeepers.
El Scorcho saw Hitchcock's >> Psycho << film adaptation at the age of 12, and was immediately floored by the possibility of being "externally controlled" by one´s own hallucinations.
While Ed Gein made headlines with all his morbid deeds in the late '50s, inspiring an entire generation of musicians, filmmakers, and writers, El Scorcho was not interested in the "human skull soup cups," the "nine masks of human skin", the "chain of human tongues" or the “belt of breast nipples” from the start. Instead he wanted to know what anxiety disorders can trigger off in a person - and how hallucinations eventually can result in murders.
Ed Gein was convinced that his dead mother spoke to him and soon he was on a mission: to bring the old lady back from the hereafter. Convinced, that his dead mother spoke to him, Ed Grein set out for a mission: bringing the old lady back from the afterworld.
He studied the local obituaries and then always excavated the "freshest" corpses. It was conclusive for him, through contact with the remains, to establish contact with the realm of the dead. Contacting the realm of the dead by means of mortal remains seemed a plain implication to him.

A young man is sitting in front of a TV. The device is not set to any channel ... only static noise.
Michael Owen Perry receives secret messages from the TV. He is said to kill the pop singer Olivia Newton John. Many voices speak to him now. The parents of the schizophrenic teenager went to the mountains over the weekend.

Michael goes to his parents' garden and cut down all the trees to get a better reception for the TV tunes.
Four years later, on July 17, 1983, he will kill his mother, father, two cousins and his nephew. Michael Owen Perry will be arrested in a motel room in Washington D.C..
You will find nine televisions there. ... And all of them will be set to static noise.
Scorcho is not just about creating extremely dark paintings, but rather builds his own theory on a topic that has been occupying him for over a quarter of a century: heteronomous killers - if need be killing even themselves. According to Scorcho´s findings, this can occur by various reasons:
a corresponding genetic predisposition [such as schizophrenia]
taking psychoactive substances [Lsd-25, Pot, Psilocybin or similar]
voluntary or involuntary participation in experiments in the field of thought control [such as the MK-Ultra project, Operation Bluebird, MK-Naomi, Project Artichoke or similar]
a dissocial or antisocial personality disorder [characterized by a tendency to aggressive behavior and violence. Affected people often come into trouble with the law because of disregarding social norms and acting irresponsibly. Dissocial personalities are quickly irritable, impulsive and have a low frustration tolerance. A subgroup of affected people has no empathy].
or a mixture of all four variants
El Scorcho's compositions are a fantastic mix of destruction and irony. Never before, the hallucinations of murderers, death cult leaders and assassins have been illustrated in such a threatening way - and so fascinating at the same time.
