D.Q.E. DAIRY QUEEN EMPIRE Masturbation Made a Mess Out of Me 1992
1. Make the World Go Away
2. Masturbation Made a Mess Out of Me
When I ripped this, the first song on Side A ran into the second, so it's one track.
DQE was from Atlanta, Georgia. I remember going up to see a friend in Atlanta who was a record rep. with another friend of mine. After a night of partying and bar hopping to pop in and see the Flat Duo Jets and Monster Magnet, the record rep and we went to a practice space in a very bad area of downtown Atlanta at about 2 a.m. At the practice place was the drummer from D.Q.E. and a couple of other people. I already had a copy of the 7 inch so it was pretty cool to meet the drummer. My record rep friend wanted to stay and keep drinking and my friend and I wanted to go back to his place and get some sleep. He let us use his car to get back to his house but when I tried to get in the car, the alarm started going off and here we are in a bad part of Atlanta with a car alarm going off and upstairs they are playing so they can't hear us and the door is locked. We just wanted to get the hell out of there! Finally we got the alarm off and sped out of there pretty fast. Even my record rep friend (I can't remember his name!) warned me about the neighborhood. Now I look back and think the whole thing was pretty darned funny. And that's my story of D.Q.E. Sort of.
