And if you don't think I'm "punk", I don't give a fuck. I won't be a clone."
- Jimmy Little, Lead Singer Of The Fuck Ups

"I don't like saying, "You're a punk and you're not." There was a record out there called "Ca Plane pour Moi" by Plastic Bertrand, right? And I guarantee you if I had to play it for you right now you'd go, "Right! That is rockin!" Now, if you were to say to any sort of purist punk, "This is a good punk record," they'd get completely enraged. But Plastic Bertrand, whoever he was, compressed into that three minutes a bloody good record that will get any comatose person toe-tapping, you know what I mean? By purist rules, it's not allowed to even mention Plastic Bertrand. Yet, this record was probably a lot better than a lot of so-called punk records."

"Well, that's the sound of freedom, son", he said (free to say no more). But wait a minute "dad", did you actually say freedom?

"I heard that life is a wheel and you can't make is stop, if you try it'll flatten your head. It's a circle of shit, we're in the middle of it, but soon we'll all be dead like everybody else tha'ts ever lived before, the things you make fall to the floor. Nobody knows how hard you tried, it's been that way since the start of time. There was a caveman did some amazing things, but nobody here gives a fuck. And in a thousand years, they'll feel the same towards all the things you've done. So don't worry what might give you cancer, stay up nights just wanting answers.

"When I open my eyes, I can only sigh, for what I see is contrary to my creed: and I must despise the world for not perceiving that music is a higher revelation than any wisdom or philosophy. It is the wine that inspires new creations, and I am the Bacchus, who presses out this wine for men, and makes them spiritually drunk; when they are sober they bring to shore all kinds of things which they have caught.

Neither am I anxious about my music, which no adverse fate can overtake, and which will free him who understands it from the misery which afflicts others."
