Though best known as the frontman for Oxbow, Eugene S. Robinson is a true Renaissance man who also splits his time as a writer, editor, and martial artist. In addition, he's had a Forrest Gump-like ability to be present at pivotal moments in history, as documented in his new book called A Walk Across Dirty Water and Straight Into Murderer's Row.

I spoke with Eugene about investigating evil in his seminal zine, The Birth of Tragedy, and the "road to Damascus moment" that led to the first Oxbow album, Fuckfest. We also discussed how reading his books is like "pulling up a barstool", and whether he's worried about any blowback from writing about his experiences.

My thanks again to Eugene for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
