From Fresh at Twenty: The Oral History of Mint Records by Kaitlin Fontana, published by ECW in 2011.
So, at my house, there’s a couple of roller derby queens. They’re half-drunk. And I had two fucking wayward Santas, all drugged out, and [laughs] then Tolan, my guitar player, brought out his pellet gun and was demanding Bill and Randy give us cocaine, if they were the record label.
They were looking pretty nervous, and then the roller derby girls were taking off Bill’s jacket, they’re like [slurred], “Take off your jacket! We’re going to take off your jacket!” and unzipping him. And I was pouring them wine, and then Tolan kept saying that they should go run around the field while he took shots at them, and that’s why Bill would need his jacket on.
And then I laid out my next three-record plan for them. So it’s going to be the cabaret-type, filthy comedy record, and then the really expensive orchestra record, and then the record people make to get out of their contract. Like Neil Young’s Tramp or the funky record. And they agreed.
And then the next day Randy apologized for drinking my wine. I said, “Why are you apologizing? Tolan was going to shoot you!” He’s like, “That’s right!” So that’s why I like them.
