“ In the early 1980s, gaggles of crazed angst ridden youth
… were bussed out to the Mojave desert to unleash their Extreme culture to the cosmos … Munitions of every shape and size exploded. The desert burned. Minds Fried. Culture Shifted. ”

“ We played in the middle of the Mojave Desert at a festival called Gila Monster Jamboree … It was a magical night, one of my favorite shows ever. ”
