(Interview with Richey - Sendai, Japan) - October 1993 ?
(This is a transcript of an interview that was shown on a Japanese TV station.)

"Manic New Year!" - Kerrang!, 4 December 1993 FIXED

"Depression = Drink = Mutilation!" - Kerrang!, 4 December 1993
(This is the original version of this article. Kerrang! reprinted it in its 6 December 1997 issue, and rather bizarrely, they made changes throughout the article - different paragraphing, words changed, phrases and whole sentences left out, and a different title - when they reprinted it. The 1997 reprinted version, which is titled, "Little Baby Nothing", is what has been distributed throughout the web all these years. (It was the only version I had on this site, until now.) If you'd like to compare the original with the reprinted version, here's "Little Baby Nothing", the 1997 version. FIXED Also, the specific copy of the 1997 reprint that's been on the web, including on this site, (like apparently every other webmaster, I had just copied it from another web site), had some errors and an introductory section that was left out. I've now fixed the errors, and added the introduction.)
