Har Mar Superstar

To place it bluntly, Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann) is really a balding, out-of-shape light man using a pencil-thin moustache who croons sex-laden R&B music while break dance.

Girls Against Boys

Girls Against Kids’ dual-bass assault and Scott McCloud’s wheezy sing-speak vocals (similar to the Fall’s Tag E. Smith) produce a lively, if sometimes loud, sound that could most likely annoy listeners if it weren’t for the D.C. band’s great Fugazi-influenced tracks. Girls Against Kids’ 1989 debut recording, Tropic of Scorpio, …
