From Supply and Demand, pg. 284:
I totally missed out on the Germs while I was primarily listening to L.A.'s second wave of hardcore. Not until I heard the Melvins' cover of "Lexicon Devil" did I look for the Germs catalog, which had been out of print but, conveniently, recently re-released on CD. Of all the punk bands, I think the Germs most embody the "if there's a will, there's a way" punk spirit. In my opinion, they were outsider artists who used instruments and vocals as paintbrushes. Though their work may have been sloppy, sometimes there is charm in a gesture that transcends craftsmanship and could even be compromised by it. It is this same gestured whimsy that can make people self-destructive and susceptible to vice. Darby's virtues in one area were his demons in another.
