Article may have been a typo, may have been referring to ‘THE DIBS’

The soundtracks driving the visuals, it seems, consisted of eerie noise and feedback. Were there often real musical components?

We would have bands on sometimes, but they were often under the misunderstanding that we would have them perform their songs on the show. Instead, it inevitably would turn into a psychedelic free-for-all with everyone grabbing different instruments all run through Don’s machinery anyhow. We had Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle and Alex Haacke of Einsturzende Neubauten on different shows. The Centimeters were on the show. The Bibs were the ones who maced each other. Howie Pyro has been on the show. He was amazing on it, and his episodes are represented on the DVD. When Ariel Pink was 19 years old, he stopped me and Jon Shere on the street because he recognized us from the show. He said it was his favorite show and that he would tape it and watch the episodes over and over again. So we let him on the next shows we did, and we even shot some music videos for him, one of which is a bonus track on the DVD.
