That's great. And yes, we would love whatever copies of your first LP you have sitting in your closet. The TB mailing address is on the contacts page. Thanks!
Dear Mr Bored:
Do yourself a favor and edit out the libellous
assertion concerning my sexual preferences in the
I was friends with Rodney Bingenheimer for many, many
years. There was a glorious period in 1981/1982 where
we discovered the mother lode of Southern California
punk rock together. The Angry Samoans were besides
themselves in frustration that Rodney had this
incredibly influential show and they and their pal
Richard Meltzer were on a nothing NPR station.
They needlessly attacked Rodney and issued pathetic
death threats that Rodney took seriously. They
re-wrote their song "Hitler's Cock", conveniently
releasing it in Germany where the original title would
have gotten them in trouble, substituting the title
"Posh Boy's Cock" the lyrics of which insinuated that
Rodney and I were homosexual lovers. The Samoans have
not dared to release that in the USA.
Rodney is a borderline paedophile. His friends talk
about it in the outtake section of "The Mayor of
Sunset Strip" DVD. If I had seen him do anything
illegal, I'd been the first to report him ... but
Rodney was petrified of getting busted in the 1980's
onwards for what was commonplace in the 60's and 70's.
He did associate with some known paedophiles, living
vicariously through them and I steered well away from
these unsavory characters. But as I explain to my
teenaged daughter, I also ran a mile from getting
involved with the murderous Billionaire Boys Club and
the Chippendale's people.
Being a friend of Rodney does not mean you're also one
or you condone his activities!
How do you think my children will feel when they read
the garbage you have printed? Why should they be
tarnished with something that started out as verbal
diarrhoea from the mouths of frustrated Pharisees?
I thought Shane answered your leading question as
intelligently as one might expect from someone who
immediately declares "Well, I don't know the man ..."
For the record, I fell out with Rodney a few years
back and have only spoken to him once recently, just
to chat about "The Mayor of Sunset Strip".
And, yes, I have had and continue to have a lot of
enemies ... and a lot of friends.

Mr. Fields is apparently pissed at some insinuations made during Troy's interview with Shane. We apologize for any confusion regarding Mr. Fields sexual proclitivities (is that even a word?). The interview was done without the intention of harming or slandering anyone. Please don't sue us. And "Posh Boy's Cock" is a rewrite of "Steak Knife" if I'm not mistaken.
my name is hiroshi otsuki. i read your writing something.
but i don't know very much english. so i very interested in this zin.
registrators are broken up few month ago now.
now i'm starting new band. name is BRIGHTLINER.
sound like OASIS. NEW ORDER. ROCK. just little bit punk.
Fuck. I get an e-mail from Hirsohi from the Registrators and it's to tell me his new band will sound like Oasis. And New Order (I'm taking it he means the post-Joy Division band, and not the Ron Asheton outfit, which might actually be worse). The Registrators will always be one of my favorite bands, no matter how bad they got in the later years. I extend Hiroshi all the luck in the world with Brightliner, and hope he achieves his dreams of rock stardom. I think Lowery will be releasing Brightliner in the US, because he fucking loves Oasis.
Letters, questions, comments, potential lawsuits, and fan mail goes to: termibore-at-aol-dot-com. Please keep it funny and/or interesting.
