The Chinese government doesn’t think all-girl punk band Hang on the Box is an appropriate representation of Chinese culture. So the government denied the band members visas to travel. As a result, Hang on the Box had to cancel its dates on the New World Disorder Tour in the UK.

Although Hang on the Box writes songs with such titles as “For Some Stupid Cunt at BBS” and “Ass Hole, I’m Not Your Baby”, the set they played at SXSW 2003, well, bored me. They’re actually pretty tame in that Shonen Knife-Mummy the Peepshow way.
