“But they found a way to make a career in music against some serious odds. They did so by dint of their own initiative, resourcefulness, and probably a fair amount of naiveté. They took the path less taken – a path largely unpaved, far more perilous, and with few precious signposts – but ultimately more rewarding . And, in doing so, they lived out a very basic premise of punk: Think for yourself.”
