Shirts: Lackeys, Schemers, Pants, Sleeves, Cufflinks And Shirts

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 8 April 1978

"WE WERE always obscure in a way. The way things went, we developed our own world, sort of. We have our own language, words that we use just among ourselves that no-one would really understand. In a way we were forced into a very isolated existence, 'cause when we first started everyone said we sucked, then we hit CBGBs and we were never mentioned, not considered part of the scene. We made it on our own terms."
