Hall: It was New York in the '70s. Drinking and drugging wasn't abnormal. That's what you did. I left the band in May of '77. I had a drug problem, and it was something I needed to do: Get away, and do something about it. If this CD came out when I was 22, I'd probably be dead now.

Lunch: '73 was such a bleak fucking period in New York when they started—just desperately poor and dark and dirty. That bleak frustration and hatred really comes out in the music. But yet it's cloaked in this catchy garage facade. It occupies its own genre, for sure.
