Jazzy hardcore provocateurs The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower caused a stir in Europe recently — and not just in Paris. Various overseas venues were disturbed by the band's name and stage costumes, which include red armbands sewn onto black shirts. The title of their most recent album, "Love in the Fascist Brothel," didn't exactly ease anyone's concerns. The band's European booking agent issued a statement that said the musicians "are not Nazis. We personally think that it is, due to the Jewish ethnicity and homosexual orientation of some of the members of the band, unbelievably ignorant to think something like this." The band will open shows in North America for the equally subversive Blood Brothers starting May 10 in Chicago and running through June 17 in Los Angeles.

What did they expect?
It may be funny to them, and a gimmick that obviously got them some attention,
but people don't find that sh** very funny these days.
That's like calling your band Death to the Infidels, going on stage with towels wrapped around
your head, and expecting people to see the humor in it!
