1. Videodrone vocalist Ty Elam bagged groceries by day, then jammed in friends' parents' living rooms by night. In Bakersfield, California, a David Lynch-esque oil town, there was no place to play except country-western clubs, gay bars and high schools. So Elam would get together carloads of friends and drive on into LA. In 1990 Videodrone was known as Cradle of Thorns, stylizing their synthetic aggro-electric sound that was influenced as much by sub-B horror-movie soundtracks as the technoshriek arrangements hurtled out by their pals in Korn, their Central Valley homeboys.
