The Chicklettes

Formed: Spring of 2001 after Cindy Sinn and Sophonda Mayhem met in New York in a taxi.

From: Little Rock

Members: Aggro Annie (bass), Sophonda Mayhem (vocals), Cindy Sinn (drums) and  Jessica Strange (guitar).

Sounds like: Subversive Girl Group punk-pop. Or, in their words, "classic '77 style punk rock with lyrics that are both funny and convey an angry demand for equality and respect for all." Amen.

Where you'll find them: Everywhere around town. Traveling gig to gig in a hearse with a vanity license plate that reads "NECRO." On Sat., they're playing Circa 76 with What Army and the F-tards. Then, on Fat Tuesday, at White Water, their alter ego, Ace Spade and the Whores of Babylon, shares a bill with Jim Mize.

Little Rock Lyrics Hall of Fame: Put 'em there for "Nitroglycerin Bomb." Here's the first verse:

I'm goin' to the prom with a nitro glycerin bomb 4X

I'm going to decide who is naughty and who's nice
If you've ever crossed me better stay at home tonight
You called me a losser cuz i didnt want to date
Now the fuse is burnin' and it's set to detonate

I'm going to the prom with a nitro glycerin bomb
I'm gonna blow away every Harry, Dick, and Tom
I'm going to the prom with a nitro glycerin bomb
I'm blowing up the cheerleaders and burnin' their pompoms

Don't you try to stop me cus' you'll just get blown away
I am homicidal and that's how I'm gonna stay
Never gonna get to crown the prom king and the queen
They're just gonna get a blast of nitro-gylcerin!!

Music:

"Nitroglycerin Bomb"

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
