This Latvian sleaze-rock act are almost criminally one-note, but it’s a solid note. It’s Mötley Crüe doing the Backyard Babies doing Marilyn Manson, forever. Everything fishnet all the time. It’s like being hit over the skull with a giant cartoon mallet non-stop for 20 minutes. But, you know, in a good way.


Came from the sky like a 747. Classic Rock’s least-reputable byline-grabber since 2003. Several decades deep into the music industry. Got fired from an early incarnation of Anal C**t after one show. 30 years later, got fired from the New York Times after one week. Likes rock and hates everything else. Still believes in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, against all better judgment.
