One day in 1995, Rick was leafing through a bunch issues of Ben is Dead and Genetic Disorder in my apartment, and he said, casually, "I wish I had my own magazine." "Well, let's make you one, then," I replied, and we proceeded to do so, eventually producing one issue of Satan Brand Magazine. Rick's tagline was great: Tired of that HEAVY Satan? It was a lot of fun to put together, but we were simply ridiculously poor, so only about twenty copies ever got made, all of which were given away to friends. I'm still proud of it, and have recycled elements from it many times. Here I go again, in fact!
The following is the first of several interviews with Rick from Satan Brand Get to know Rick! And he was like this all the time! Um... I guess at this point it's prudent to say that this content, just like Ricky Rebel himself, isn't for everyone. Kids, if any of these terms confuse you, just ask Mom and Dad! Enjoy:
Tomorrow: the first of several posts featuring Ricky Rebel's custom cassettes!
