Pop culture treasure, high culture trash.

I hear you're buying a synthesizer and an arpeggiator and are throwing your computer out the window because you want to make something real.

The Triple Rock gets big points for having Can’t Stand the Rezillos on its jukebox. I am more used to j-boxes whose obscurity thresholds max out at Bay City Rollers songs that are not “Saturday Night.” But not the Triple Rock. They also have Kings of the Wild Frontier, which means you can play “Antmusic” and feel terribly ironic and meta and pleased with yourself. So unplug the jukebox/ and do us all a favour. Yes, Adam Ant sings in British spellings. He is talented that way. He did, let us remember, rock the disoriented androgynous pirate look long before Johnny Depp. If not quite Keith Richards.
