“I have a really cool aunt and she bought me my first-ever Blink-182 CD. For me that Blink disc was the start of everything (…) I hurried home to check it out. I put the record into my crummy little hi-fi and sat there listening to it while I was supposed to be doing my homework, my clothes still wet from the rain. That record was the coolest thing I’d ever heard. It was the first time I realized that being in a band wasn’t just about trying to be as hip as possible. It could also be about having as much fun as you could on stage. That, I realized, was what i wanted to do, and it was after listening to The Tom Mark and Travis Show that I went to ask my mum if I could learn the eletric guitar” - Dougie, Unsaid Things book
