Brian Ritchie of Violent Femmes was interviewed by Faster Louder ahead of some Australian festival dates that were announced recently. In the interview Ritchie didn't discuss founding member Victor DeLorenzo's recent exit (DeLorenzo was replaced, at least for upcoming tour duties, by Dresden Doll Brian Viglione), but he did talk about the Femmes' classic 1983 album, which he called "timeless" and "a masterpiece," and how new generations identify with those beloved 30 year old songs:

"They’ve become part of the culture, they’re more than just songs from a popular band. So many people identify with those songs...The new generation keeps getting into it the same way as the previous ones. It’s not like a retro thing. We intended it that way when we made the first album...we were trying to make something that would last..."

Ritchie also talked about touring, reuniting, and the Pixies and the Replacements (all three acts are part of Riot Fest in Chicago September 13 - 15). Read the full interview with Brian Ritchie over at Faster Louder.
