Bad Religion doesn't usually play there. Judging from All Fantastic Images' lyrics, they hate England.
Graffin: "We're just fed up with it. They're very self-important-and they've never been very kind to Bad Religion. There are a lot of English fans of Bad Religion, and we'd enjoy playing there-those fans are important to us. But the industry over there is really snobbish; we can't get a gig. The promoters are all arrogant as hell-if you don't have a fashion, they won't really promote you."
Brian: "Plus, I just kind of like the idea of having someplace that we hate. I mean, there's not a lot of punk left in my day-to-day life. I think it's a misconception that there's anything about the English music scene that we're supposed to follow. Most of the [bands] I like turned out to be Irish or Scottish."
Graffin: "We've played in Scotland, and it's wonderful. So it's not the entire British protectorate that we're attacking."
Brian: "The ever-shrinking British protectorate. What do they have left? I think maybe a gas station in Fiminy. They should change the name to New Spain. I think what bugs me most is their insistence of using eight or nine syllables where one will do. 'Overtaking'. No, 'pass'. Ever single thing has to be more complicated than it really is. And don't even get me started on 'shh-edule'."
Graffin: "And they have to say 'innit' after every sentence to check that you actually understand what they were saying. Because you can't understand what they're saying."
