“1. Fast food (McDonald’s, Burger King, etc.) – Avoid at all costs. Sometimes this is hard to do; there just aren’t many options in some places. This food will come back to haunt you and definitely make you feel crummy. Conversely/perversely, White Castle, which definitely always makes ya shit, should still be consumed at any and all opportunities. “

” What song describes you best?
“I don’t know who it’s by, but there’s this song and its refrain goes, “Crazy mixed-up kid”. If it came out at all it was probably in the ’50s. It’s a blues song. And also the theme from Star Trek. But not that new one.”

Melody Maker: Rebelious Jukebox [1400 Words] (PRESS, UK)
TEXT: “What’s always appealed to me are records made by bands which are just too messed up and weird. It’s like you’re finding something secret. It’s music that came from nowhere. The Monks were a bunch of American GIs in Germany in the Sixties who formed a band out of boredom. They were a garage band by default. The Electric Eels were so f***ing weird.”

FULL TEXT: “When they were completed originally, I guess in ’84 or ’85, I showed ’em around in like five places in New York City. I was real excited because I had to come to New York after finishing a semester and seen a show and I read the UNDERGROUND FILM BULLETIN, so I got really excited and I really wanted to show the stuff and I did and nobody really came. Then I got more interested in other stuff.”
