Detention - Dead Rock ‘n Rollers - c. 1983.
Some things I know about Detention…
1) This song was a WPRB staple in its day.
2) I saw them open for Black Flag. Can’t remember a thing about them.
3) It’s a great - really great - tune…

But at least he didn’t drown to death in his own puke”
Henry Rollins vs Hipsters
How disappointing. Henry Rollins as an aggressive (okay - I’ll give him aggression, since he’s Henry Rollins), clueless, egotistical tool. And the bit at the end about the “very famous book” Get in the Van. Oh, boy…
Henry Rollins crams into the garage to talk with Marc about his confrontational style, why forgiveness isn’t his thing, how an act of violence shaped his life, why he worked with Charles Manson, and what kind of relationship he has with his microphones.
