1What outrages me is that people can be so satisfied and half asleep. I don't want to go back to the 50's or something, but I do remember a time when cars looked like rocket ships, and people wanted to have a wild time and dress sexy and dance sexy and try new, crazy things. It seems like these days there's an abundance of boringness and timidity, and that's the kind of thing that outrages me, you know? Boring people, that's nothing new, but the numbers are growing rather than going down. It's not a good sign.


1Took his stage name from a car advert (a truncation of "luxurious interior").
2Does not consider The Cramps to be a psychobilly band, even though they are often considered to be one of the first in the genre.
