PUNCHLINE


WHIRL DOMINATION
By Chemo Swa~Vey
November 25, 1998



Thelonious Monk meets Leave it to Beaver over some Cream and ends up "Giving You Fever" - and this is just one song. Meet the Scariens, the ones who rummage through the dusty trunk of American pop culture for their cut-and-paste medleys. Spouting subversive social satire and B-movie imagery, lead singer Huk L. Bury could be considered a cross between Screaming Jay Hawkins and Jello Biafra, and his band is the punkest thing out there in terms of sheer originality and ballsiness. The Scariens are out to do for your father what Marilyn Manson does for your little brother. If you don't believe me, just ask Bury yourself, before he embarrasses you in front of your date.
