Devils in the Airwaves. – (November 19th 1983)
The record they made, called “Nerve Damage” has been making the rounds in college radio and independent broadcasters. The Bad Plants are now touring the U.S. traveling and living in their run down van, nicknamed Gojira. Day after day playing shows to half empty venues and bars, climbing back in the van and driving to the next town. The dream has become a day job, and the feelings attached to that are complex, which only get brought up more as their song comes on the radio.


-[The parking lot in the back of a dingy bar, Ohio]-
-[Radio fires up, lands on a college radio]-

Living life in a metal box. Playing shows and meeting drunks
In and out the gear will go. Day after day, show after show

*We are the devils in the airwaves. we are the demons of sound
we are the monsters on the radio dial. we are the devils now*

So this is the dream all close up. It’s not bad but there was no rush
23 hours of grind and drive. For one more hour to feel alive


Everyday a rush to the next town. At some point you start to drown
Hear your own song on the radio. Now that seemed so long ago
