Roots of Cyberpunk Volume 1: Powerman 5000 = THE SHIT

Captain Pollution, YES!!!!

randy numens might be the wave of the future, but as far as i'm concerned these dudes are, like, the founding fathers of cyberpunk rock.

when i was 13, Spider One seemed like the ultimate rock star figure. in retrospect, he was basically a cross between his brother, Rob Zombie, and Captain Pollution. also, he wore awesome goggles like Horace Grant. i have nothing but praise for these guys at their late 90s peak.
