French metal six-piece Rock Bitch cause a storm...
Welsh priests and councillors have teamed up to try to ban an upcoming gig by lesbian shock rockers ROCK BITCH.
The French metal six-piece are notorious for their onstage sex acts and
nudity, and they have already been banned from playing a show in Cardiff
But promoters are determined that Rock Bitch’s show in Newport Jesters on Monday (September 17) will go ahead.
Rev Peter Wood of Newport’s Summerhill Baptist Church, said: “This is a challenge to the values of the whole of Western society. It’s important we don’t just dismiss these people and their views as a joke – it’s actually very dangerous.”
Councillor Garry Brown added: “I’m most concerned about the young and vulnerable people who might go. They shouldn’t be confronted by this. I don’t believe in harsh censorship, but there are certain standards we should not fall below.
“I think we should all get together – the council, the magistrates, the
police – and stop this.”
Rock Bitch, who claim to live together in a French sex commune, have appeared on TV’s ‘Eurotrash’, and are said to perform live sex and lewd acts with sex toys attached to guitar pedals.
But promoter Mike Jones said: “Yes, it’s an outrageous show – it’s very in-your-face. But if you don’t like it, don’t go and see it. It’s as simple as that.”
