Splat! INXS Makes The Sound Of SUXS

Bud Scoppa, Creem, February 1988

INXS FRONTMAN Michael Hutchence is draped casually across an easy chair in a suite at West Hollywood's Sunset Marquis Hotel. An industrial vacuum cleaner rests behind him, as several maids ponder the formidable task at hand. "Another rock 'n' roll band," their eyes seem to say. "Another mountain of rock 'n' roll refuse to be disposed of." Hutchence, though, is oblivious to their stirrings; he has more important things to ponder.
