Trashy Treasure

The B-52's reappear just in time for far out to be way in again.

"Keith wrote the music, and I came up with lyrics and titles and ideas along with Kate and Cindy," explains Schneider. "I don't know if anyone else has three singers that all write the lyrics and melodies and arrange things.... It takes a lot of biting your tongue, you don't always get what you want and you have to make compromises, but we make the best compromises."

Schneider, for one, couldn't be happier with the way the B-52's have continued to emulsify deviant ingredients into trashy treasures.

The B-52's resurrect thrift store glam.

"It was a snowball that got bigger and bigger, because I had dropped out of college, had no career ideas except writing weird verse," Schneider reminisces. "But luckily we found each other, as none of us had a career. So music came along and we started doing it, and we kept doing it even as record company people and other crooks saw us, and it turned out like this."
