    Listen Up - Fast reviews of recent releases

    The Defectors, Bruised and Satisfied (Bad Afro). This slide-show of B-movies and '60s garage punk has just enough menace to incite real fear. The cartoon "Bring on the Dancing Ghouls" seems goofy, but the underlying threat has to be taken seriously. ...

    Subhumans (U.K.) - Monday, August 27, Marquis Theater, 303-292-0805.

    The Sex Pistols gave anarchy a headline and a splashy photo, then left it to the caustic Crass to do the research and provide the content. Subhumans then took that message and packaged it into a more palatable form -- not unlike the Pistols -- spinni...
