OUCH! They call themselves the worst band in Boston, and after witnessing their biennial Christmas show Saturday at ZuZu!, we're inclined to agree. Mente, whose members include former Clinton speechwriter Ted Widmer (stage name Edward Van Mente) and Kim Deal's ex-husband, John Murphy (stage name Ron Bacardi), were hilariously bad, playing to fast and too load while singing songs about Bobby Orr and, yes, scrod ("scrodliness is next to godliness!")
