Time : Why was
the bands' name changed from Nipple Violator to Super Violator?
: If your in
a band, we don't like you. We only like us. We are
good band in the world. We're number one, that's all there is
: I'm glad you
asked that, because it's a long story. We used to have a pair
Weegans in the band. These was Gabe Weegan on the

) Those boys were fine, but Bloody and Mucous matured and
Yeah, I've matured. I don't play music. I'm more of
de-construction worker. I tear stuff apart.
Time : Are you
still moving to Massachusetts?
: I'm trying
to move out of the solar system. That's where I'm heading
for. I'm going to get my hands on a rocket ship real
I've already been negotiating with NASA I hate this planet, so I will
be out of here soon.
setting up all the club gigs down there. Our base will be
somewhere in between Gardiner and Boston. Right now in Boston
there's an independent label on every corner. It costs
for a thousand seven inch records; or 42 cents each.
: We have
cheesy video's. Send us an inquiry in care of Super Violator
Bloody Stump Records.
: Yeah, the
new songs are a lot more straight forward than some of the old
songs. They are a lot more louder, faster and
There're catchier, two minute songs are like long for us.
: We played
fourteen songs in exactly seventeen minutes tonight. We are
stuff that appeals to us. A few people learn that they like
buy our albums, and support the next thing we are doing. We
the most infamous punk band that has ever existed in the state.
: When you
write the word punk write it with a capitol 'P' because that's how punk
Bloody used to wear panty hose on stage and get naked at shows.
Time : Why
did you stop?
: Well it wasn't really like, shocking anymore.
: It kind of
got old, We did it for a real long time, Every time we played 'I got
naked.' What's was the surprise in that?
You knew I
was going to get naked. Now-a-days, it's like,
got his pants on. We still smash stuff up. If I see
sticking microphones where they sit, then I've got that copy
written. It's patterned, we're suing!! G. G. Allen
me. He wrote me off. He's dead now, and I'm
can't believe he did that to me. I taught G.G.
VOICE IN THE
DISTANCE : : Bobby Allen's 'inside' !
" ( The now
closed Not Fade Away Cafe.)
Noooo! By the way, when Bobby Allen was in prison; we wanted
do a, "Free Bobby Allen," Benefit. Yeah!
God! Whew! You got that right! We just
together, because we are really, really unorganized. I heard
went to jail for stealing a "Big Mac" or something. It wasn't
even fair, you know? I'm glad Bobby Allen is out of
That's all I got to say because he rules.
Time : I heard
a tape of the band and it sounded awesome. Mucous told me it
took 10 hours.
: I own
Guink Studio's at --- Water St. Gardiner Me. 582-xxxx and it
took 1 day to record. It's $250.00 for 30 minutes of

been like the 5th Violator. I've only been drumming for the
for 4 months.
: Yeah, It's
: You got to say something about the way Bloody is, because
can't print everything he just said. I think that's what
this band flow together.
: I just
follow what David Lee Roth has done in the past. Shadow likes
Junk! He likes Punk, I like Junk! ( Composed a song while
talking. ) I like Junk... I like Junk...
that! I like Junk not Punk! Junk not
Punk! Mee Mee
Myy. Mee Mee Mooo Meee Meee. ( in high pitch then
like a monster ) Uggghhh!!!! Uggghhhh!!!! Cough!
Cought! ( inhale ) Actkk! Splat.
Time : Say if
somebody read this and they read the "Grunts," Interview; would you
guys put on a show with the grunts?
Grunts would definitely have to play under us. I don't want
"T" them off, but they are a bit influenced by our older
style. We love the members of the Grunts they're
: Is there
a lot of fellow groupies at the shows?
Mobs! Seriously, mobs! I'm at every show,
practice I'm there. Their style of their music is the build
the ultimate in sanity.
There's a lot of militia's up here, Anti-Government
There is something that they could hook up with in your music;
like the Sex Pistols did with the original tour of the U.S. back in the
: (Screams )
Your God! Doug Papa is God! You rule! You ask the
questions! Great interview by the way.
Time : Alright,
answer before we get to the Wharf in Hallowell.
in a monotone voice : ) I don't
know I just
like to play, ( Sing ) with myself.
Time : Come on
man! Think about it!
: ( yelling )
I swear to God!
Time : Do you
think if you get the militia people to say...
: ( Confused
Time : These
people hate the Government, your band hates the
might say we should see their shows, like they did with the Sex Pistols.
Confidently Loud ) I hate the
hate you ! I hate your mom! I hate
Frantically Screaming ) I don't care if your Infuriated with the
Government! I just hate you as much if you were a
We don't care if you are a Government or an Ameba's all the way up to
human beings; everything man! Marsupials, I hate them
If you have a pouch I hate you! Marsupials really tick me
off! Kangaroo's stink! I'm ticked off!
Time : Do you
guys view yourselves as musicians where there is no crossing the line
anywhere? When it comes to : " Yeah they might like our
but they are going to hate us, because we hate them already ? "
Screaming ) We all, we, ( changes tone quickly to question. ) What? (
Groupies burst out laughing and Bloody joins in.) We hate
you! I don't know what he means, but... ( everyone laughs
more. Then Bloody goes back to scream
mode: ) I don't
like you! ( normal voice ) Outside Doug. ( meanwhile groupies are still
laughing uproariously, while Bloody goes back to scream out :
don't like anyone else! ( normal) - besides Doug. ( Screams
) I don't like, like anyone else accept Doug! I
anyone else, accept Doug! I like Big Time Magazine, and I
you! If your reading it, I don't like you, I don't like
you. I like myself. I love
narcissist, ( clears throat ) Atckk!! Atctckk! I
myself! ( calm down into a normal tone of voice ) I like look in the
mirror...Actually everything I mean makes sense, and it's totally real,
I'm Bloody Napkin. Doug, Big Time Magazine 'Rules'!
spell that with a capitol R. ( TV news anchor voice of
informing) I mean Big Time Magazine is my favorite
in Maine. I read those 2 issues, rockin! ( screams ) Face
Magazine stinks! I call it stink Face! And
music magazines stink like bad underwear. I would like to say
that the main message of our music, is that there is no future for
mankind. I mean, pretty much, we will end the Universe and we
will do it soon, I mean, if you don't believe it, well hey, forget you,
because your going to be dead.
Big Time :
Now is that the type of stuff your lyrics are about?
: ( Dead serious ) Uhhh...No. ( Laughs then serious
) In a word 'No'. I have no lyrics about the
future. I write catchy tunes.
: Catchy tunes dude! Violator rules. I'm
in the band, and it's my favorite one I've ever been in.
Time : O.K. what's 'Get a job and die ' about?
It's about a dead chicken. Amazingly enough, I used to be a
chicken farmer; and not many people know it. If you get a lot
of chickens together, they lay eggs. I was surrounded by
eggs, for years. 'Get a job and die' is about not wanting to
work, at all. I would rather die than work.
Time : Rock and Roll Zombie?
: Rock and roll Zombie, is about killing yourself, for
something we will do. We will committee suicide on stage,
eventually, all at once! By suicide, I mean act it out before
we break up. Nipple Violator committed suicide on stage, but
out of that came Super Violator.
Time : 'Lonely Mutant Boy'?
: 'Lonely Mutant Boy,' is about not wanting to be on this
planet. Most of our songs is how we feel, are from this
Universe and we do not fit on the Earth. We will like to
leave this planet as soon as the technology is available. We
will like to blast off.
Time : 'Wage Slave'?
: 'Wage Slave' is about working in a dead end job.
You're making minimum wage. It's basically about the
hopelessness in the valley.
: Like Papa's mom. his aunt and his cousin Bill. (
How he knew I had a cousin Bill,- I have no idea.)
: Hopelessness man. We don't got no future, none of
us. We're all going to die young.
: We've got songs like mass murder, killing spree, or that
type of stuff. 'I want to be abort...'
Time : ( Interrupting ). Josh what's Boston got for a Punk
scene, that Maine doesn't, and needs to have?
: Oh, it will never have it Doug. Face
it. This place is about Skidders and Grass and Tree's and
over weight little people watching TV and drinking beer.
Time : Do you think Punk is going to boom in the next couple
of years, like it did during the late eighties?
: I think it already has. It's happening right now
and it isn't even really Punk. You can go see Marilyn Manson
and just go nuts. You gonna pay $20.00 to see some guy
because; I don't know. Whatever he does, your going
to pay $20.00 to see him. He might beat you up or
something. I don't know. You might as well do
something else, like get a video and watch that instead, because that
type of entertainment could bring you trouble.
Time : What did you say your style is?
: Well, basically mid-eighties punk rock. A couple
of bands in example, is Black Flagg, Angry Samoans, Descendents, and I
throw a couple of jazz chords once in a while in a place no
one suspects it. Garage rock. It's all that and a
now style we haven't had the pleasure to listen to.
: Well the mid-Eighties, means wicked fast punk.
: the dead Eighties?
Time : Well, it has a lot of changes.
: A lot of changes, but it's straight forward.
Pretty straight forward, but it's just how it sounds up front; but then
you listen to the background. It's something to appreciate,
as like, -I can't say are. I'm not allowed to say Art.
Time : So it's something that any open minded
musician can go to and enjoy it?
: It's something that anyone could appreciate,
because we're all fluent in our musical instruments and our
backgrounds; and we're doing this on purpose. Some people may
not appreciate that, but we're doing this purposely. This is
what we truly enjoy; like a Avant-Garde kind of musical style.
Time : So would you think it's like a punk-drum beat, but
you and Nate are going very technical in your instruments and
stuff like that?
: Oh, We're technical and the vocals are very up
front. They're catchy. The lyrics are
great. They are funny. They're for the working
Time : Do you think this state stinks for punks?
: Oh yeah, It really is bad. Some kids will come to
your shows but they won't support anything further. It can't
generate any life into any punk band. It will pay you $50 per
person at a show once every other month. That's
nothing. It's just for fun. It's great for
fun. We want to get to the point, we're playing a few times a
month. We want to meet people who are interested for
good pay and good audiences. We want to play to an
audience that can respect us.
: What happened at your last gig?
: We got drunk at the gig in Boston. They gave us
free pictures of beer. We loved it.
Listen! Listen! Swear to God! I
don't care if you live in California, Uganda, France, where
ever! You give us free beer and we'll be there.
Free beer is what we play for. Beer is the world.
: Will you ever record your set of 10 unreleased songs?
: Yeah. Someday if somebody wants to release
it...well you know, they can put it out: but it's going to be their
fault if it doesn't sell. (Laughing.) They're not going to
get rid of that stuff. That's scummier than
scummier. Ra! Ra! Ra!
: It's like some kind of entertainment where you're in
awe. Your not so much like, liking it; but you need to see
it? Well, you like too. You leave and you talk
about the show for a long time after that.
: The thing of it is, is that there is a gigantic
cloud descending upon America right now.
: I don't think the government likes punk because, we wrtite
songs and make fun of them. Like, "Ronald Reagan, look like a
prune." Ya know? "Your wife should be dead, and
you're going to blow us up and ya look out the window and see a big
cloud of mushroom smoke."
Time : You said before, that since the government knows what
punk music can do; what they'll probably do is sterilize it like they
did during the early Eighties and it might go that way.
: Right-O. They've already sterilized it.
We had the Nirvana stuff come out in '91. The kids thought it
was cool because they all got to dye each others hair blue.
They thought that was a big statement.
: The only reason Nirvana broke out first, is because they
were closer to Metal.
: The style of our music isn't blues or country bar
rock. We're just doing it for the fun because it's so boring
here in the valley. We aren't out for popularity of
nothing. The bands that are making innuendo's to make fun of
us, we don't care about that. We're dead end
lifers. We enjoy having a beer.
Time : Question of the month. Every month, this
magazine gets dropped off to the Secretary of Governor Angus King;
O.K.? Question is : What would you like to say to
: Don't raise the tax on cigarettes. Make the
drinking age 18 again.
: Good points Mucous, but I would like to say Angus...
: We dare you to come to one of our shows Angus.
You'll be amazed.
Time : What do you think the Governor needs to do
to make music more assessable?
: I think the government should just stay out of
it. It's none of thier business anyway.
: If Angus wants, he can be the second guitar player in the
band. If he wants to try hard.
: We'll give him the invitation right here, " Angus do you
want to join our band? Angus, do you want to join our
band? We'd love to have you. We'll let you play
rhythm guitar. You're not going to play many solo's."
: You're not going to get the spotlight at all Angus.
: We will let you play with us.
: Do you think that punk music is going to be the fore front
in the future in this state, because of so many laws they
got? For instance, the drinking limit is going to go from .08
to .06 .
: You know, I think lowering the legal blood alcohol level is
only going to make people drink more. If you look at
Prohibition. Prohibition had many more alcoholics than there
: If we're talking politics, the Kennedy's made all their
money during Prohibition selling illegal alcohol ; and they were some
of the most resopected politicians in the Country that we ever
had. So everywhere is corrupt and it's just a bunch of bull
ande I hope punk doesn't reach to a high maxium, where the little 15
year old kids go watch shows and love it, because that's al just a
bunch of bull. It would be like we're just brainwashing the.
: And we would like to actually say, that Angus if you don't
want to play with us, you can at least come and drink a couple of beers
with us. We won't tell anybody that you're going to ride off
on your motorcycle at over .06. We don't care. Look
I got a case of Budweiser. You can have a few. I'll
buy as many as you'll like to drink. You can come on over to
our place. We'll hang out with you and the drinks are on
us. If you want to come over and party with Super Violator,
just call us at 582-xxxx, or write us at P.O. Box xxx Hallowell Me
04347--Care of Bloody Stump Records.
Time : You mentioned 15 year olds coming to your
shows. Have you seen any?
: They have come to our shows, but don't get brainwashed
thinking that you have to go and um...don't take it to heart kids, this
: We paid 60 bucks for our PO Box within the last year and a
half. We've got three letters. Two of them have
been form our friends. We'll send any of our tapes out for
: Yeah, you write to us and you'll get goodies.
Goodies in the mail.
: Two bucks and your get some something.
: It's not just the tape. You'll get the tape and
extra, Prizes, goodies, grab bags,you'll get goodies.
Time : You were talking about some Major recorded companies.
: Yeah, there's like three or four. Pretty much
they control the whole thing.
: Everything else from major label is a sub-division.
Our thing is just about as independent as you can get. We
tape our own stuff then we record it from our stero and we sell it
ourselves. ( Laughing. ) We don't even have a distributor.
: We do have a mail order. If you have a favorite
member you can write in care of Shadow of Death, Mucous Lubricant, Jack
Acid, or Bloody S. Napkin.
Time : The quality and sound, sounds jsut as good as
: Our drummer went to U.M.A. He's got thousands of
dollars in equipment. He's got an 8 track real, a 24 channel
mixer, and all kinds of great stero boosters. He also runs a
studio called Guink Records. There is an Ad in this
issue. He does it for the cheapest around, the best
quality. He's Chad Lewis -- Shadow of death.
Time : The music alone on the tape I heard it sounded like I
heard it sounded like it would change anybody's mind towards punk,
because it didn't sound like noise. It was just as good as
the Main Stream stuff. I'm surprised it's not with a Major
: Well, we haven't sent our tape our yet.
: Not many people have heard it. Only a couple 100
of people at the most have heard that.
Time : Do you guys have any plans of sending it out?
: We do have plans. We've had plans for like four
months, but we're just lazy as we really don't care. If it
happens, it happens.
: I'm more concern about getting beer for the night then
sending out a tape.
: Yeah, because it's costing 96 cents for postage to send a
: That's at least one beer, right there, down the
drain. ( Laughing. )
: Um, we'd love for an agent to volunteer to send our tapes
out. We would even offer him a cut or something.
Time : If you were approached by a major record label you
would act extremely professional, right?
: We wouldn't kiss butt or anything. We're going to
go out for the best deal we get. We're not going to get shaft
by anybody. Nobodies going to give us two copies of our
albums for C.D. and then we don't make any money or anything like that.
: We like distribution. If someone want to
volunteer to distribute our tapes, they can sell them for $3.50 or
whatever. They can keep a $1.50 for themselves.
Give us a couple bucks, big deal.
: The thing is about us, is we're never going to make money
off of it.
: Yeah, we care more about people hearing about us.
We want people to know that this is from Maine, and we were the
infamous band that cmae from Maine. We were the old Nipple
Violator. It struck out all these scum punk bands to come out
of no where. A lot of them are influenced by us.
: We lose money every show we do. the highest we
got paid was $50.00. We lose stuff, we break stuff.
: We're banned from Geno's as it is. Our last show
was one of our most tame shows, and we are never allowed to play
there. the reason is Bloody showed his backside.
Bloody broke a table a table at Blind Willies at Nashua New
Hampshire. He broke a table April 25th the first time we
played at the Not Fade Away Cafe. He broke a table last
night. He's broken numerous mike's up in Bangor at the Penny
Post. Bloody will break something and they will ask us
back. They won't ask us to pay them back, because so many
people will enjoy the show. We just play to have a good
time. We do what we like to do. We are playing what
we would pay many to listen to.
: I'll break something for either 2 people or 100
people. I'll break my head for 1 person. We are
rebelling against. against, everything. Musical trends,
: We are an anti-glam band. The Junta such as punk
: Our next Album is Super Violator vs. The Planet
Earth. ( The tape is already made and ready to be
bought-Papa.) The Album is a picture of each of us on a
missile heading towards the planet, with all of us riding on it.
: Yeah, everything is do clear cut these days.
Boring, dry, predictable stuff, everyday.
: We are anti trend rock terrorists. We don't like
other bands, we only like ourselves. We don't care.
The problem is we'll always be jerks. Weather we are popular
of not. No matter how much people love us, we will always
hate them. No one will ever love us, because we always rebel.
: I get more energy the more people are at our shows.
: Our last show was at the Not Fade Away Cafe, was 14 songs
in 17 minutes exactly. We said there's 2 songs left, we
played them, we left and didn't say anything to anybody. We
didn't go on and say: "Does anyone want to hear
more?" Shadow is the recording God. Jack is the God
of his Bass.
