    As a Tubes Neophite, I have to say: splendid — in a “70s prog rock doesn’t necessarily suck” kind of way! :)

    Listen to Todd Rundgren’s Utopia (circa mid ’70s) for some more cool American prog rock.

    Has Nina Hagen ever sung on stage as a guest with the Tubes?

    She brought out ‘TV Glotzer’ and then in ’79 the Tubes released an album about a TV addict called ‘Remote Control’! I’m guessing from the pics she’s singing ‘TV Glotzer’ while Fee is singing ‘White Punks On Dope’ seeing as it’s the same tune.
