Nosegrind - Wolfgang

P. Big Daddy ��� why can�t you drink any alcohol during this interview?

P.Okay ��� Good shit

R. Wait I got one���. What was it like appearing in the tv series � little darlings � in 1980 with Christy Mcdonald, as part of two young women trying to come first to lose their virginity.

M. ( Laughs ) It was a very good experience and I really enjoyed that show ( laughs ) , I had a good time with the girls but I can�t really explain it, it confidential ( laughs )

P. okay section 2 of that question�� why didn�t you let him go to second base and why are you such a homophobe?( laughs )

M. Because I�m a homophobe, that�s why he didn�t get to second base ( laughs ) My mums pretty homophobic, she used to always tell me as I was growing up � you better not be fucking gay � ( laughs ) and that�s deadest serious ( laughs ) I don�t know I don�t care that people are gay, I don�t mind it its chilling, I just don�t like it gay shit, I just don�t like people being gay around me I don�t care if there gay it�s just when they do poofter shit around me

P. alright alright alright.

S. enough of the queer shit.

P. why do you have the same name as the actor from there�ssomething about Mary, Matt Dillon?

M. Because my mum loved matt Dillon I guess, It was her favourite actor so she decided to name me matt Dillon., nah I�m just kidding, my second name came from my mums side, my middle name came from my dad�s side and my first name is the middle name of my dad.

P. And what is your middle name?

M. James
