Being recalcitrant shock-metal absurdists, the Mentors were undoubtedly pleased back in 1985 when an apparently distraught pastor read their lyrics (most famously the line "bend up and smell my anal vapor, your face is my toilet paper") into the congressional record. While it may not have been the intent, the Parents Music Resource Center censorship hearings gave barely known groups like the Mentors, W.A.S.P. and Body Count an unexpected infamy that Mentors singer El Duce extended by getting himself run over by a train shortly after insisting to the media that Courtney Love tried to pay him to kill Kurt Cobain. Surviving members have hooked up with a Mentors tribute band singer (of course) to carry on the legacy of make-out tunes like "Herpes Two" and "Clap Queen." They'll be at the Triple Nickel Tavern (26 S. Wahsatch Ave., 555nickel.com) tonight for a 9 o'clock show. Tickets for the 21-plus gig are $7, with Pottymouth, Shit and Tater Twat serving as appropriate openers. — Bill Forman
