Lauren Kirk introduced me to music, namely the outhere brothers x-rated version of boom boom boom. We would play two crude dudes whist eating super noodles instead of veg. I was on a weedy iceberg lettuce vibe at the time, so "chicken-esque" monosodio flavours made me pop. My concept of Lauren Kirk lies somewhere between squid and the voidoids. We would march round the playground in unison chanting "har ha ha har ha" wiggling our hands in prayer position, saying hello and goodbye to Mrs Kenderdine and tim; it was well proto-hardcore.
