DR. SPOCK (KKKK) are unlike anything you´ll ever see. They open their show by hurling rubber gloves into the crowd and then gradually strip down to either pink spandex trousers or leopard skin pants, all the while blasting schizophrenic disco-punk. One singer is a vast man mountain roaring at the crowd, the other looks like a mad, ‘70s history professor. It´s entirely impossible what to make of them, other than that they put on a masterful show. - Kerrang
