Soul Asylum: The Thin White Nose-Candy Line

Mark Sinker, New Musical Express, 28 May 1988

2005 note: I don’t think I ever played one of their records ONCE in all the years since I interviewed them (haha a "sensible Clash" – no wonder!) I have no idea why I wanted to write this. My guess: it was suggested to me, and I said yes on a whim. They were perfectly nice people and we had absolutely nothing in common.
