Blowfly, Under the Covers
If such an album existed, Pat Boone's Punk Rock Party would be a G-rated collection of classic punk tunes reworked with family-friendly lyrics. Imagine the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" as "I Wanna Pet Your Dog (Not Your Date)" or the Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go" as "I Should Stay and Raise a Family." But there is justice in the universe, and that record never happened. Instead, the party was left to Miami's porno-disco king, Blowfly. On the recently released Blowfly's Punk Rock Party, there are plenty of rewritten lyrics "I Wanna Fuck Your Dog" and "Should I Fuck This Big Fat Ho?" and absolutely nothing for the kids. Jello Biafra even makes a guest appearance, remaking the Dead Kennedys' "Holiday in Cambodia" as "R. Kelly in Cambodia." Now that's offensive.
Blowfly performs at Rock Vs. Art VII on Saturday, August 19, at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. Admission costs $6. Doors open at 6 p.m. Call 305-757-1807.
