Pussy Riot is the Only Band in the World


The non-members of Pussy Riot, which isn't even a band anymore and of which these two young ladies are no longer even a part of, are the only band in the world anymore. They get more news coverage than U2 and Coldplay combined and that's because the English-speaking media is obsessed with having permission to print the words Pussy Riot over and over again.

It trips off the tongue, Pussy Riot, and it excites the senses. But they're not in the band and there isn't even really a band. They make obscure Russian noise punk and disrupt things. They are badly persecuted, I will grant you, but that's only because they're still in Russia. If they lived in Western Europe, they'd be ignored.

No one should be attacked and no one should be doused with chemicals or paint. How barbaric.
