"Moving from New York in 1980 to California, the Adolescents
came to quickly symbolize, for me, the golden mystery of that state. Not the beaches and boardwalks, but acid fry, in-pit knifings, absent parents and killer cops. I listened to this record again and again and again and again and even learned how to play bass playing along to it. I can't play bass anymore but I can quote the entire record from memory."
