Recoil (Alan Wilder, ex-Depeche Mode) song based on real tragedyPosted on 20/06/07
The track "99 to life" to be found on the upcoming Recoil album "subHuman" is not holding just a random text. "99 To Life", actually the term used to describe the maximum Jail sentence handed out, short of the death penalty, is based on a real story says Richardson when speaking to Side-Line: "It's about one of my closest friends. Sent to prison here in TX, after killing 3 men in a gunfight. It was actually self-defense, but they were white and he was Hispanic, and it was a long time ago, when we were young and dumb!" A full interview with both Alan Wilder and Joe Richardson will be released in Side-Line 59, which can be pre-ordered below. More hot Recoil news coming up in the next days !
