Celebrity Skin: Rock 'n' Roll Disgrace
Bill Holdship, Spin, December 1990
ONLY LOS Angeles could produce a band like Celebrity Skin. In a city where celebrity is both religion and life-style, this group is a decadent cartoon. The band takes pop-rock archetypes —everything from bubble-gum melodies to hardcore thrash metal — mutates them in their own image, regurgitates them through a chaotic stage spectacle that's kinda like vaudeville on LSD.
