Before I had money and internet access, I could only listen to the radio. I’m forever thankful that 99.3 played “Girls Not Grey” which led me to discover AFI. There is no memory of my youth more pleasant than of lying in my bedroom at the age of 13 wishing my walls were black, liner notes in hand, and dissecting each word of Sing the Sorrow. I’m no expert on music but Sing the Sorrow, to me, is AFI’s Black Celebration. To this last point, as a 90s kid, I wouldn’t have discovered Depeche Mode without AFI. So, thank you for your music, and also thank you for leading me to Depeche Mode.
