The Tubes: The Tubes (A&M SP-4534)
Wayne Robins, Rolling Stone, 25 September 1975
THE TUBES seem to be a theater group that parodies rock & roll and its associated social conventions of the last five years. There are witless sendups of Bowie ('Space Baby'), Chicago ('Haloes') and heavy metal ('White Punks on Dope') as well as an expressed fondness for the revival of that ancient fad, sadomasochism ('Mondo Bondage').
