David Lowery (singer, Camper Van Beethoven): What we would do was play these fast ska songs. They would kind of run around in circles and skank, and they were happy with us until we started playing something that offended them. I specifically remember playing a Veterans of Foreign Wars or Knights of Columbus hall. We probably had about 800 people in Chico, California, and the crowd kind of turned on us. We were hippies, we had long hair, we played "Wasted" and "White Riot" in this country style, and it just wasn't going well. We had to play a lot of these fast ska tunes to get them under control. I remember going, "I don't know if we're going to make it out of here. I don't know if we have enough of these fast ska tunes to last the 25 minutes."
