Poleriders Were Inspired by the Deadly Nightshades?!
It's true. Even we had a hard time believing it, but we went over our tapes from New York with a fine tooth comb and found a quick - not to mention totally unnoticed at the time I taped it - off-camera sound bite from Andrew Katzander (this guy) claiming that the Deadly Nightshades were an inspiration for him when he started Poleriders...
For those of you who have never heard of the Poleriders, they're a team of poledancing babes who dance in costume (not naked), on a bicycle propelled platform with pole attached. Hilarious.
The video is posted here - notice the slightly sinister laugh at 0:22!!!
