Onstage, the Jack Daniels-swigging, wheelchair-wheelie Steven Dynasty and Yamaha keyboard-pervert Chuck Hollywood seem to have just emerged from the ooze of the slimiest bar in LA. That's the only observation you have time for before you are overcome with the giggles at Cum & Go's raunchy originals. Or groaning -- their inspired version of "My Heart Will Go On (Love Theme from Titanic)" makes up for every treacly replay of Celine Dion's. We discovered the band opening for the Zsa Zsas; our reporter Kyle suggests we disclaim his interview as "possibly fictional." You decide. We don't miss a single gig.

She is a dancer at the Dollhouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We flew her in to Tucson to sing and she's been following us around ever since."

LIFE STORY IN BRIEF:

Steven: "We met at Dollywood in Pigfort, Tennessee. Chuck was there recording a solo album in Nashville. I went to Dollywood for a little vacation. We formed a band based on our mutual interests -- booze and women!"

Steven: "More topless dance clubs."

CONNECTING POINTS:

Chuck: "We've played Vaudeville, Plush, and the Red Room." Steven: "Hell, we also go to Old Tucson Studios to watch the gunfights and to the casinos to blow a wad on the fucking roulette wheel or high-stakes poker."

ARTIFACTS:

Chuck: "A Yamaha Keyboard and Newport Menthols." Steven: "A fifth of Jack Daniels, Camel 99s, and an old-fashioned push wheelchair. . . none of that electric shit! You got to work your arms!" [The band says they also star in various "amateur films," and have two other CDs (In Yo Face and Pay at the Pump) that were huge in Iowa. For their Tucson following, there's the latest CD, Straight Pumpin', and sticker for sale at their shows. -- KK]
