This interview was done a few weeks before I graduated from high school back in 1992. If I remember right grunge music was really taking off right about that time. A few years after Kurt Cobain killed himself.
"Many teenagers are living in a community of horror. And living in a community of highly destructive alien forces that they don't know much about. And to put all of those into their own fantasy is not the answer, these are communal figures, they're like ancestoral voices. If they were on another island in another time, in another tribe, in another society they would be regarded as demonic inhabitants of the village."--James Hillman from the interview
