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.
