Bombs Away!

When asked why the new B-52s album is so sexed-up, front man Fred Schneider has a very logical response: Because were the same sexy old freaks we always were! On the aptly titled Funplex -- the bands first studio album in 16 years -- the beloved Georgia rockers get back to their roots. Songs like Hot Corner and Deviant Ingredient simmer with the same sort of vocal harmonies and surf-rock guitar licks that made the band famous, while the title track packs up the old Love Shack and moves it to a naughty mall. Its all about sex and dancing, says Kate Pierson. Me and Cindy [Wilson] just couldnt help ourselves. With a new record label and an arsenal of fresh, quirky songs to tear through, the group is eager to hit the road this spring and bring Fun to a new generation of fans. As long as there are dance clubs and gay bars, we know there will always be a place for us to play, says guitarist Keith Strickland. Thats always been where we call home.
