1977 interview

Never known for modesty, Marc said “I picked The Damned to tour with me because I wanted to put the best of the established bands against the best of the new wave bands, so we’ll see who can out-punk the other every night” (source: interview with Phillip Crawley published in The Journal, March 18, 1977). In another interview he claimed that he picked The Damned to tour with them because Captain Sensible had the good taste to wear a T Rex t-shirt. Pictured: Marc with Dave Vanian of The Damned, 1977.

I’d never seen part 2 of this interview until today. So beautiful!

In a 1977 interview that was never publicly released in it’s entirety, Ted Bundy maintains his facade of innocence. He refuses to accept the fact that he may be given a death penalty, and presents himself in an extremely self-assured way. When asked to consider the possibility of being put to death by means of a firing squad, Bundy arrogantly replies:

“ I think I stand about as much chance of dying in front of a firing squad or in a gas chamber as you do being killed in a plane flight home…let’s hope you don’t.
