A TALK WITH PROTOPUNKER JOHN MORTON (ELECTRIC EELS, X_X)

“Agitated” by Electric Eels is hands down one of the most important punk rock songs of all time. I put it in my top ten, maybe even top five. Nobody else was making those brash, snotty, abrasive sounds. Another Rust Belt city, Detroit, had The Stooges and MC5 but the Eels were something different. They were distinctly Cleveland. John and Dave E created something that is one of a kind. Later John did X_X. This is his story.
