Still Hangin'

The Hangmen were once famously "Broke, Drunk and Stoned." Now they just sound that way.

With a clear head and in control, Small has finally redeemed (at least sonically) his early batch of songs. "This is the way the [Capitol] record should have sounded, and the way [producer] Vic Maile mixed it," he says. Maile produced The Hangmen, but Capitol had the album remixed. Maile, who also had produced such paint-peeling concert albums as the Who's Live at Leeds and Motörhead's No Sleep 'til Hammersmith, was well versed in live, raw, hard rock. Maile's original mix "sounded way more like this live record than what they did to it on Capitol," says Small.

"I love playing new songs, too, but I love playing the old songs," he adds. "I love playing those songs as much as I ever did, especially with this band, with Jimmy playing, and Angelique and Todd. They understand.

Gallows humor: "I was sitting in the bathroom thinking it'd be funny if they left me. I came out, and there goes the van."
