UCSD pornographer and newspaper editor Steve York made national news when he exposed himself on campus TV in February. The controversy that erupted earned York an appearance on MSNBC's Scarborough Country.

"After my 15 minutes of fame were over, I decided to come back with another production," says York. "I wanted something professional and fun." York, banned from UCSD's TV studios in November, says his Stevie Why Productions will release a 35-minute DVD next month that features his skin and the music of O.B.'s Defamation League. The trio's "grit-hop" is a mix of hardcore/punk guitar with hip-hop beats and lyrics.

"When we [have sex] it's not to Yanni," says Defam's MC Khemical Ali. "When I think of porn, I don't want to hear some cheesy '70s porn guitar track.... If it weren't for Steve York, I might have taken a job at Legoland or Chuck E. Cheese. Porno shouldn't be such a taboo. America was founded by Puritans and Quakers and shit like that."

The three Point Loma High grads of Defamation League will release The Anatomy of Grit-Hop on January 1.
