    Performance Tarts - Have acts like Bozo Porno Circus and My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult run out of folk to offend?

    If only Tipper Gore had continued her crusade against sex and sleaze in rock and roll, not only would her PMRC rail hopelessly against the psycho-sexy-disco-funk-industrial band My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (an original Parent Watch listing), bu...

    Rotation - Young Dubliners: Red

    Young Dubliners Red Omtown/Higher Octave Irish bands that have tried to steer Celtic rock into the collective pop consciousness have a rather spotty record. Dexy's Midnight Runners spiked in the early 1980s, when Kevin Rowland retooled his ...
