Insane Clown Posse

ICP are loved by many, hated by many more, and that‘s the way-uh-huh, uh-huh-they like it. Jason Pettigrew hangs with Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope to see if life is as Bizzar/Bizaar as it seems. 



PJ Harvey

The former "50 Ft. Queenie" has returned from her "self-destruct mission" with a scaled-down perspective on life and her best album yet. Bill Broun sizes up the new Polly Jean Harvey. 



VIVA LA REVOLUCIÓN!
