- Get me into a modern punk scene. I was into 70s/80s punk and ska. It made we realise there was a whole scene which ‘adults’ dismissed. “There’s no good music these days”. Random Hand always, and always will, prove that statement is ignorable in the same way that RH are not.
- Opened my eyes to the fusion that makes ska and punk so flexible. ♫ You can pick and mix with your music fix, there’s a lot of stuff around ♪. Robin’s vocals (as well as those of the Sonic Boom Sixers) were a gateway to picking up other hip-hop and hardcore styles. That idea of reworking the structure of a genre stayed with me when I got into folk-punk. The gigs I put on (5th March, Fulford Arms, Petrol Girls) always try and mix up genres and styles, to the extent of having poets alongside music.
- Scum gonna be triumphant.
