The Iranian rock band �Kiosk� got started in 2003 in Tehran. But the authorities did not take kindly to the group's irreverent lyrics. The leader of �Kiosk� moved to San Fransisco in 2005. His four bandmates soon left Iran too for San Fransisco and Toronto. �Kiosk� is now reaching appreciative audiences around the world, including Iran. Cyrus Farivar caught up with the band in Cologne, Germany.
