THE RISKS OF LEAVING POLKA BEHIND: Bad news for Little Switzerland: the venue in Sonoma, California recently decided to deviate from its usual musical bill of polka bands, polka bands, nothing but polka bands to host a 2 Live Crew date. No, we didn't know they were still going and, no, we don't know why a venue that has its heart in polka would suddenly book them. Anyway, unfortunately, undercover California Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control agents turned up, and heard the obscenity, and now Little Switzerland is in danger of a fine or losing its licence. The best bit? The CDABC claim that they weren't targetting 2 Live Crew - they just happened to be making a random check that night. Oh, yes, we totally believe that.
