The B-52s: Greening Insanely

David Quantick, New Musical Express, 16 June 1990

All roads lead to 'Roam'! They used to be totally crackers but now they prattle on about saving the planet and looking after the old Druids. But fear not! THE B-52s are still as wiggy as ever. DAVID QUANTICK joins them for a train journey through the history of 'bell-bottoms'.

Total word count of piece: 1994
