PORN STARS OF HORROR, THE: Sex, Drugs, Violence and Sodomy: 7”

The Porn Stars Of Horror continues to perplex me. I hate them and I love them. Thematically, they have two sides. The side I love is the rad, anthemic songs about horror flicks. On this particular record, they do a super fast jam about the movie Child’s Play. The combo of throat-ripping female vocals and deeper, more sing-songy dude voice is used to perfect effect. I’m way into this kind of thing. But then there’s the thematic side of this band that I hate: the puerile, porn side. I’m not against sex songs, I just require that they either make me laugh or arouse me or outrage me or something, not just make me groan, which is what the song “Touch” did. It’s about butthole touching. To make matters more complicated, the band also has two sides musically: the straight-up punk rock side and the acoustic side. I really wish someone would steal their acoustic guitar.
