At last, evolution throws up something more irritating than a WASP

Oh, good. Chris Holmes, Randy Piper, Steve Unger, Rich Lewis and Stet Howland - you'll note three of them used to be in WASP - have come together to form a band which seems to be a tribute act to themselves:

[Howland says] "We will play all the hits, as well as ALL the dangerous music the current [lineup of] W.A.S.P. is skipping. 'Fuck Like A Beast'? 'Mean Man'? Huhh? HUH?"

But let's not run away with the idea that this is a bunch of dumped WASPs trying to cling to old glories. They've got a whole different name: Where Angels Suffer. Although, erm, they will be answering to WAS.
