Now here’s a blast from the past. A blast from the past from the past, actually.

After unearthing an ultra-hard-to-find interview with Dead Meadow yesterday, today it seemed fitting to trudge up an even rarer one with Dead Low Tide.

These are three hard-working men. One is bald, diminutive (around 5 feet tall) and brandishes a wrinkled, menacing smirk. This man has been arrested on numerous occasions for public exposure and enjoys his occupation, which involves howling, salivating, urinating and wrestling with complete strangers. Continue reading
