Nardwuar: Well, I was curious about Twink
actually, and the song "Do It," because Twink lives
in Vancouver, he originally did the song.
Rollins: I saw Twink last time I was in
Nardwuar: And I looked on the record and saw
that there was no credit to Twink on the Texas Hotel release,
Rollins: Well, we gave them their publishing...
Nardwuar: But I didn't notice it on the actual record, I really
like the version, I like Twink's version, but Rollins: It says
Nardwuar: Not on the version I saw, on Texas
Rollins: But it certainly doesn't say "Rollins."
Nardwuar: No, it doesn't say "Rollins,"
and it doesn't say "Twink." It doesn't say anything
Rollins: That's probably a typo. But on
the legal documentation it would say.
Nardwuar: Did you recently fire your band
through email at all, Henry?
Nardwuar: Because I heard that you've hired this new band called
Rollins: No, I'm doing.... Now, remember,
you're on your last question. Is that the one you want to ask?
Nardwuar: No, well actually, why don't we run through this one
right here for a second. The Raw Power master tapes... actually,
you can put this in my ball court, how about I put this into yours!
I'll put a whole bunch of questions on the table and you can pick
the one you like. It can be like multiple choice there Henry,
how about that?
Nardwuar: Okay, here's the remaining question
for Henry Rollins. A fan gave you the master tapes to Iggy Pop's
Raw Power, that I thought was pretty bizarre. Which Thin Lizzy
song do you like better, "Running Back," or "South
Bound"? In Punk Planet, you always talk about how you lived
in a shed, but Greg Ginn says it is the "study." I was
just curious about that. I was curious about your S.O.A. demos
and whether or not those were going to be released. I was also
curious about the best way to bulk up, because a lot of salad
bars have been shut down in a lot of places because of the e-coli
poisoning. And I was also wondering if you've ever worked out
with Roky Erickson at all. And I'm also wondering what new tattoos
you've got, Henry. And I'm also wondering if you get bigger, if
it's a possibility that you'll be able to get more tattoos actually
on your body. So those are the questions that are up there against
Henry Rollins, because you say that I only have one question and
maybe perhaps you can pick the ones that you enjoyed most, or
I can recite them again to you, Henry Rollins, here in Vancouver,
Rollins: Well, you know, I think you got
a lot of energy, and the fact that you put all of that together,
I got to respect the effort.
Nardwuar: And here's PowerbarTM
for you! (Nardwuar gives Henry Rollins a PowerbarTM)
Rollins: No thanks.
Rollins: But um, I respect that you put
in all the time so I'll try and address some of it. The Raw Power
tapes were stolen, and we recovered them for Iggy, in Belgium,
through friends, and we returned the tape to New York and gave
it back to Jim
