X: The Misunderstood X

Mark Dery, Rock Scene, September 1986

"It's like if you're an artist and they say, 'I'm sorry but you can't have your paintings displayed in public anymore.' The radio's really awful, but it's wimpy to accept things as they are and say, 'Radio sucks, I don't wanna be on radio'."
