“Mark [Arm, during his Green River days] was also legendary for his stupendous stage leaps, like the time he earned a perfect ten for ruining the evening of a couple at the old Rainbow Tavern, who could have sworn they were out of his range until he landed in the middle of their table like a heat-seeking missle.”
James Bush, from the December 1988 issue.
“I imagine Mark Arm having a dream about Iggy Pop. This in itself is nothing unusual. It seems like everyone on the ‘heavy’ side of the fence has been visited nocturnally by the Ig’s spirit. In this particular dream, however, Iggy’s trying to beat Jimmy Page down with a Les Paul while the Sonics and Husker Du compete in a U.W. ‘Battle of the Bands.’ Arm sits bolt upright and screams ‘Eureka!’”
