REFUSED - Dennis Lyxzén redet über "The Shape of Punk to Come"


Dennis Lyxzén hat sich in einem Interview mit Exclaim darüber unterhlaten, wieso es keine REFUSED Reunion geben wird:

I grew up in a small part of Sweden. It's not like I got to see hardcore bands or punk bands come to town. We had to invent everything ourselves so there are tons of bands I wish I could have taken part of but they were out of my reach. It's the same for people that never got to see Refused live. They want to understand what we were doing, were a part of. To be in that band is one of those things that half the time I'm sympathetic and understanding towards why people would do it. The other half, it's just such a useless manoeuvre. It's a defeatist attitude but if your objective is to play music with your friends and have a good time, there's no harm in reuniting your band for a couple of shows. For us, there have always been so many other aspects of what we did, that it always felt like a complete no-no. You can't do that shit. Minor Threat never got back together. That's kind of our take on it. With some things, the legend is better than the actual thing.
