Pink Floyd "Animals" helped ease me into a life of artificial stimulants. Boy, what a change....

|I mean when I heard The Mark Of Cain didn't have a record out in America I was like 'well **** that, let's get busy with that. When you hear them..., I mean they could come to America and devastate nine tenths of what is touring right at the moment.
When I saw The Beasts Of Bourbon I thought exactly the same thing, let's just get them to America so they can kill everyone. I mean I watched them blow Nirvana offstage just so pitifully at the first Big Day Out. Oh man that was tragic, I was so glad I wasn't those guys that day. I was standing on the side of stage and Tex came out and just owned it. It was the Horden Pavilion and the place was packed and he came out there like Mick Jagger or something, just rude, bad-assed, totally charismatic and the band was amazing. Then Nirvana came out and were great but not..., everyone knew the day belonged to the Beasts. And I was like 'you guys don't have any records out in America You can't get The Low Road in America?' That's one of my favourite albums and I got involved with Tex and I started shooting my mouth off to all these people...

Husker Du - NEW DAY RISING
kicked so much more ***** than any of the "metal" I was listening to at the time.. the SST bands (Black Flag, Minutemen, Meat Puppets, along with the Huskers) let me to stuff like R.E.M., the Violent Femmes and the Replacements. Then soon the British stuff followed (Joy Division, the Cure) and my Quiet Riot and Motley Crue albums were soon gathering dust.
