Very early interview with the Mondays. Oh how the time has simply *flown* by. Don’t believe me? Well compare and contrast the above with this recent gem.

Good to hear from Kulkarni regarding this issue in the comments. Here’s the interview that “utterly changed [his] life forever”. Hope it stirs happy memories.

Did this pre-date baggy? Memory hazy. Found the small black and white images on page 44 a touch odd/disturbing. Has Ryder got some sort of shank to his throat?
Can’t believe we’ve made it to nearly 2 years of AMP without any Wedding Present so far. I’m sure Mr. Agreeable will have savaged Gedge and co. for the Ukrainian folk concept album. Nobody really liked it did they?

You can either read this for the outrageous Stubbsianisms that pepper this interview, cf. “Plunging in at the anus and excavating, tunnelling a giant point of exit at the sockets, they are one part giant surge of flesh, one part holy revelation.” or for Gibby’s quotes, which ironically, sound a lot like Stubbs alter-ego to be - “Hue and what? Fuck me…Humourless and Cry [more like!]“
Either way it’s worth reading. And if you’ve never heard of the Butthole Surfers then why not track down Locust Abortion Technician or Hairway to Steven
