The Radioactive Chicken Heads

Orange County Center for Performing Art

A pithy description of these art rockers would put them somewhere between Gwar and the B-52s on the wierdo spectrum. That's not to say they sing about love-shacks or drench their audience in fake blood. Within the context of the band's colorful mythology (involving mutated vegetables) they sing songs about the desire to be a dog, amazing zombie killers and homicidal rabbits. And with a sound that might work well scoring a John Waters, Ed Wood or Russ Meyer film, these mutants keep it kitschy.
