Like I said, all this industrial stuff was part of what I was listening to before the age of 20. I was buying anything that I hadn't heard yet. I don't even know where i got the money to do this, but I did it. I would just buy it. If something, like this record, looked interesting to me, I’d just get it there and then. I had like three-hundred metal albums and once I remember trading them all in in one fell swoop. I traded 300 in and got 150 random records back, and this and Dome were in there.
