La scène se passe en 1990, sur le plateau d'Oprah Winfrey (tu connais?), où sont invités Jello Biafra (frontman déchu des Dead Kennedys) et les membres du très conservateur lobby, Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), auteur du célèbre sticker Parental Advisory, apposé depuis sur les disques au contenu jugé à risque pour les têtes blondes américaines des 80's. Cinq ans plus tôt sortait Frankenchrist, un troisième album totalement à risque (par ici si t'as jamais écouté) du groupe de San Francisco. En pleine ligne de mire du PMRC, ce disque vaut alors à Jello une petite descente de flics à la maison en bonne et due forme.
Créé en 84 par une belle bande de connasses (vingt femmes de sénateurs entre autre), le groupe de pression reste connu pour son logo, aujourd'hui gage de cool absolu, pour avoir mené la vie dure à une sélection de disques incontestablement indispensables (Cyndi Lauper, Prince, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Madonna...), et pour une tripotée d'archives croustillantes comme celle-ci, dans laquelle Biafra nous détaille le déroulé de sa perquisition.
Ca n'en finit pas ce matin, entre ça et New York qui fait sa fête à Vivienne Westwood au Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Petit rappel de l'histoire derrière ce tromblon de morceau, parce qu'elle est compliquée.
Grâce au Daily Star, on sait désormais que Beyoncé ne daignera pas de déplacer dans votre salle de concert minable à moins d'arriver au bout de la liste de shopping suivante:
- 700 euros de pailles et de "boules de glaces" taillées à la main (pour suçoter)
- Des pailles en titane pour boire son eau alcaline à 21°C
- Des habits 100% coton pour tous les gens qu'elle sera amenée à croiser (pour les allergies)
- Des loges fraichement repeintes en blanc
- Une cuvette de toilette entièrement neuve
- Du PQ rouge
- Aucune junk food mais des assiettes en verre remplies d'amandes et d'oatcakes, ainsi que des légumes bio pour grignoter
Précisons que tout ceci n'altère en rien l'affection que nous portons à le petite choute.
