Ever wonder what band headlined the first Warped Tour in ’95? The answer: Quicksand, fronted by Walter Schreifels. “At the time I thought it was a budget Lollapalooza,” he recalls. As he sips on a cup of coffee at Bonnerhaus, the Ryan’s Rock Show headquarters, he further reminisces on the festival’s early days.
“The guy from Sublime threw a bottle at this Italian kid who was a roadie for one of my friends, just a random act of violence. He threw a [glass] bottle at him for no fucking reason! They got kicked off the tour, but then were invited back because on the West Coast they were needed. Then those dudes got arrested.”
Rival Schools have started writing material for a new album, a follow-up to their recently released 2011 effort, Pedals.
