Sample text

A fair degree of apathy set in — it just dissolved. When we were living in Boston, we met Al Jourgensen — he produced an ep for the band. I stayed in touch with Al, and after his Twitch record, he wanted to get a band together. So I asked Bill Rieflin and Roland Barker — the three of us then went on tour with Ministry in ’86. BEN SHEPHERD: One of my favorite bands was the Blackouts. That’s a record you should find [2004’s History in Reverse]. PAUL BARKER: I was hanging out with [Kim Thayil] one time.

I’m a Jak, I was never really a Bopo Boy, but since they were my little brothers, I was with them all the time. MARK ARM: There was a group of punk rock dorks called the Bopo Boys, who would go around in a little pack carrying their skateboards. They would get the smallest guy in the group to try and pick a fight with someone, and then they would all gang up and beat the shit out of whoever took the bait. LIBBY KNUDSON: They were a loosely organized gang, I guess. They all looked like they were brothers — they were all skate hooligans.

KEN STRINGFELLOW: The Wipers played in Bellingham — I got to see them at an all-ages show. That left a pretty strong impression on me. JACK ENDINO: There was a big influence from Joy Division on quite a few people. A big influence from the Birthday Party. Both of them were weird, angular, dissonant, strange, non-commercial bands. MATT VAUGHAN: The Replacements had a lot to do with influencing the Seattle scene. Their off-or-on performances, ripped up jeans and no care adolescent, backyard keggers, sittin’ on the roof behavior was an attitude we all related to.
