Well...you know....maybe the music is really good?
Actually, I saw one of these bands recently... and yep, they were pretty good
'The Handsome Beasts' are local heros from my part of the World are still going strong, albeit with a new line up.
The rather obese chap posing in his birthday suit with the pig ( ) was Garry Dalway, known universally as 'Flabby'. Alas he died, unsurprisingly perhaps, of heart failure about six years ago... Bit of a legend, he was. RIP.
Wow, I remember that W.A.S.P. cover from when I was in high school.

The Eighties were a strange era.
