During a trip in LA, we were hanging out at a huge party and met a guy in the bar. He was around 50 and started telling us the wierdest stories about his life in LA in the mid-80s. He went on for two hours about the starlets, the porn industry and even wierder about murder. Basically, the story went along these lines… The guy came to LA from New York to try and make things better with his, then, girlfriend. He never did find her but he met a lot of amazing people along the way from drug dealers, to porn stars, to big name actors etc… We didn’t manage to get his name, we never worked out if what he told us was true. However, it gave us the idea to tell his story in our music.
The name Walter Sobcek is a combination of our family names and is very close to John Goodman´s character in the movie “The Big Lebowski”. There seemed a connection between this name and the LA story.
