Libido Boyz (Misprints #1)

This interview appeared in the Dutch (from Leiden) zine Misprints. As far as I know it was a one-off. I got to know the people that did it (Jeroen van der Star – nowadays a DJ/producer – & Marald Van Haasteren, illustrator and graphic artist that does/did artwork for bands) through a mate (Erik de Vroomen) I worked with when booking shows there (@ Breehuys).

In 1989 I was in San Francisco for 3 weeks and met quite some interesting people and saw some great bands play live. One of them was ‘Libido Boyz’ from Mankato (Minnesota) that were on tour (DIY). I really liked their music and attitude, bought their (just recorded and self-released) 7″ It’s All So Obvious and started a correspondence with their singer Billy (Bisson). Some time later I was very disappointed that they did an album for First Strike recs (to me a commercial enterprise). In 1990 they toured Europe but our Smurfpunx-collective refused to work with that label for a show… Pity!

At that time the others in the band were Jeff(rey) Schnobrich (guitar), Dustin Perry (bass) and Chad Sabin (drums). This is one of the very few interviews I’ve seen with them…
