Best of Burque’s worst band
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Dec 6 2012 2:00 PM ]
Music writer Geoffrey Plant delved into the world of Brokencyde in Parody or Pabulum. Presumably, Plant took on this task because he’s a braver man than I am. I remember the first time I stumbled onto the horror that is Brokencyde. Slack-jawed, I watched the act’s music video for “Freaxx,” which is included below—along with a couple other wastes of YouTube bandwith—for your viewing displeasure.
