to fight crime.

people like to vibe off each other

ugly kid joeugly kid joe was not the best band in isla vista

in fact they werent even the best metal band in isla vista

there was indica, bad neighbor,

if mons pubis wanted to really go in that direction

they woulda been a better metal band than ugly kid joe too.

and i would say, without those other bands,

ugly kid joe wouldn’ta even done it in isla vista

because there wouldnta been a scene

there wouldnta been fans

and the cops would have shut their ass down.

with stuff like “we dont play that kinda music that loud in these parts.”

people like to vibe off each other.

im very happy we had ugly kid joe.

the aftertaste of a once mighty brew.
