Henry Rollins: Mean Fiddler, London

Edwin Pouncey, New Musical Express, 1 October 1988

THE GRAND old illustrated man of US hardcore grips the stage with his toes and hangs ten. Henry Rollins has just rolled into town again looking hairier than before, muscles bulging, tattoos shining with sweat. His band are even hairier, even harder. One mean concrete wall of sound for Henry to beat his head against so that all the hurt and frustration inside can be exposed.
