The Canton duo Blood, Sweat & Beers calls its synth-pop live shows adult entertainment. One listen to the lyrics of Russell Crowe proves them right: If [the head of a penis] were a helmet on your nose/This would be Russell Crowes. Explains guitarist Patrick Big Pat Masalko: When youre teabagging someone, it looks like a Roman-war helmet like the one Crowe wore in Gladiator.
Also look out for originals like Kim Kelly, which is about a real-life, 210-pound gal who made tabloid headlines in 2004 when she went on a sperm-and-milkshake diet. She had nothing but man juice and banana smoothies, says Masalko. Shes an overweight porn star and proud of it.
The 6-foot-2, 360-pound Masalko admits even he gets grossed out by some of the bands lyrics. Weve been called Tenacious D with no class, he says. That right there should tell you something.
