Scott Roman :

“I can remember playing at churches and after the show they’d come up and say, ‘You guys are evil,’” Roman says. “We were kind of a cross between U2 and Bauhaus, musically, and it wasn’t perceived well in churches. The kids would love it. It just took a while for people to realize that where we were coming from was not what they thought.”
