Nardwuar: Ok. I guess, first off, who are you?
And Tom, who else is in Slayer? Who else, beside you?
But beside you immediately right now... who are you?
And you are Jeff of Slayer. Now, Tom, where did you first learn how
to "hot knife"?
It wasnt... was it not in Winnipeg, Canada? Because there are
some guys in a band called
Sinister Witch and they claim they taught you how to "hot knife"
So Canadians did teach Slayer how to "hot knife"!
On this brand new LP, Tom, you have a song called "Scrum." What is that

over? I mean, rugby song for Slayer!?
How filled with hate are you guys? Are you guys still filled with

They got the liquor!
so devoted to you, they refuse to believe any-thing that is told to them
about Slayer. Do you guys like yogurt at all?
You like yogurt!
There is this guy, Tom, in Tacoma, his name is The Mosher. Now, this
guy in Tacoma, his name is The Mosher. He was told, I think he was told
that Slayer eat yogurt! And he was like, "Slayer eats yogurt?! No
way!!! No, thats not what I believe! Slayer, Slayer eat... pussy,
What, what do you think about... I mean, is it, da da... they just
couldnt change this guys opinion like they have the

But what do you think of these fans that have this idea about you,
you know, like, you do, you eat yogurt and pussy, like, its weird
that they have that feeling, dont you think so? Like, they believe
stuff maybe that isnt actually true?
