POWER BAND

Man, oh man, what a band Powerman 5000 is! The group has rocked houses all summer with its mosh-friendly mix of Korn, White Zombie and Rage Against the Machine.

Vocalist MC Spider started the group in Boston as a rap outfit. Spider has since dropped the "MC" and brought on drummer Al Pahanish, bassist Dorian Heartsong, guitarist Adam Williams and percussionist Jordan Cohen.

Their latest album, "Mega!! Kung Fu Radio" (Dreamworks), packs all the power of the live show, but with dashes of '70s funk, psycho-soul and juiced-up hip-hop. So grab the disc, feel the power, and wait for the band to mess up your town again this fall.
