    Anthem: It is Indeed Time to "Get Out of Our Heads"

    It's a party tune, but that's like calling Vincent Van Gogh's the Night Cafe a picture of a bar. It's true enough, but it belies an undercurrent of vision and genius. The Anthem... well, they're not quite that good. Their lyrics lack the subtleties ...

    Wednesday 13

    Looking back at that self-titled LP, it's hard to understand why Faster Pussycat's 1987 debut doesn't get mentioned in the same breath as similar titles of the era. It was surely as sleazy and lowdown as Mtley Cre's Girls, Girls, Girls but rarely g...
