The best sleaze you can get this month

Crazed, stripped-down glitter/gutter rock from North Carolina. A gnarly, snarly duo (Guitar Panther/Drum Panther) bang out these leather-bound rippers with a kinda Cramps-y intensity and the blunt directness of prime-time Iggy Pop. A real cool time, in other words.

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.
