While most of the feedback we at Washington City Paper receive from readers comes via e-mail, we occasionally get that amazing voicemail message that’s worth the menial chore of transcribing.

This is such a message. It comes in response to an arts feature about a group of kids that launched a go-go band. The leaver of the message didn’t identify herself.

Yes, hi, uh, we get your paper here at our building, and I just want to comment on this week’s…the picture on page 40, about…the kids …with the microphone, with his jeans down around his butt and his underwear showing and some of the other kids, the way they’re posing. I think it’s disgusting and in poor taste, OK? Don’t put those in there. It’s not right.
