A short exerpt:

"My name is Joe Dick.
I formed the seminal punk band
Hard Core Logo
back in 1977.
I was eighteen years old.
It was my ninth band.

I am now thirty-two.
The band is defunct.
It was a friendly ending,
but we played up the dissent thing
'cause that's what people wanted.

We were the populist band.
We manufactured our ending
to fit the mold.
That was the most commercial thing
we ever did, breaking up."
