Night on the Town, or: Untouchable Sex Chain in Tupelo

ARTICLE: There I was, working at an ad agency whose main office was located not too far from Amoeba Records and the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, not to mention a whole bunch of clubs, bars, nightspots, and everything else in that gaudy cesspool known as Tinsel Town.

Clubbing: Rakit, Soul Friction, Organik, EYE

ARTICLE: Okay, who's making this incredible racket? Oh wait, it's Rakit, a three-piece group that never saw a volume-boosting device it didn't like. The music they create is dark, mysterious, pounding, tortuous, arduous, twisted, hazardous, risky, treacherous, freaky, and full of danger. In other words, it's great fun.
