Club Class: Fly AMC to California

Ralph Traitor, Sounds, 25 March 1989

"ELEKTRA WERE GONNA give us a 300,000 dollar distribution deal through Frontier so we had full artistic control. Then they saw a video of an interview I gave and said they’d never want anybody on the label saying the kinds of things I was saying – I might put down my own band and stuff, but it’s not true. I think we’re the best band in the world, sincerely. Majors approach us, get scared shitless, and then retreat!"
