"Latex Love" by Vice Squad

Aside from the usual DIY ethic, I suspect that members of Vice Squad formed their own label—Riot City—because nobody wanted to try to explain this band to a room full of major label executives.  Just imagine how awkward that would be: “Basically, uh, it’s just three-chord Punk, but the gimmick is we’ve got this teenaged girl who calls herself Beki Bondage and likes to sing about kinky sex.”

Or maybe I’m imagining this wrong.  Maybe that pitch is exactly why EMI signed this band in 1981.
