Danish psychobilly band HorrorPops
is a lot more fun live than it is on record. That's not to say there's a shortage of room-shaking joy to be found on its latest album, Bring It On!
The real thrill comes with watching this extravagantly dressed sextet onstage one of the gals sports an eyepatch, and more than half the members rock hairstyles not seen since Kajagoogoo got round-the-clock MTV exposure. Like the microphone-fellating Cramps, HorrorPops overcomes the limitations of the genre by keeping the focus on its stage show, which includes gyrating go-go dancers and an upright bass player who dresses like a tattooed vixen out of a European fetish magazine.
