We contacted The Homopolice via MySpace in hopes of learning a little more about the project. The reply was as straightforward as it was vague: "Narcotics, sex, and The Stooges. Everything else sucks," says a member who would only identify himself as KGB-N. We turned to the group's profile for more answers and were greeted with one just-over-a-minute track of inaudible, deep-throated screaming, screeching guitars and plenty of feedback. In the "About Me" section the group further defines its, um, philosophy: "we are a noise band, not some hippie space jam bullshit. fuck black metal. this is punk." Well, that pretty much answers all "who would like this" questions, doesn't it? Non-punks beware when The Homopolice take the stage after fellow locals Wicked Poseur and The Secret Prostitutes at 8:30 p.m. Warehouse on Commerce, 2220 Commerce.
