I've always been wilfully out of step. I've always been on the outside. The only thing that came out and I liked immediately was Patti Smith. I got on to it right when it was happening. First time I saw her I was faking off from school for the 17th time and she was on the Mike Douglas show, just after the soaps on daytime TV - very mellow, very staid. Radio Ethiopia had just come out and there's Patti Smith with no shoes and just smacked. Dirty, black-soled feet and just from looking at the TV you could smell her. I know that tour look. She was like a wild animal.
