I don't know if some of them are true, but i'm going to post it anyway...

Noodles is adopted and his brother is the guitarrist of the Rancid, Lars Frederiksen

Ron's mom makes Dexter sign some papers to Ron make the first tour, 'cuz he was only 16 yr old.

In the beginning of "Session" Ron yells "Fuck,fuck,fuck,fuck..."

At High School, Greg falled in love...his teacher

Dexter is the owner of Nitro Records

Vultures was composed in 1992

Kristine Luna composed "Session"

Kristine it's not the mother of Alexa, actually Alexa's mother was an old girlfriend of Dexter and died in a car accident, "Gone Away" it's about her.

As far as I'm concerned, the "gone away" thing is just a theory, or a myth.

Vultures was composed in 1992?? I heard that on Ignition could be one extra song called 'Mission from god', but they decided to don't record it- maybe it's modern Vultures :confused:
oh and I heard riff from Pay the man, from gig in 1991 :cool:

OK, a few things...

I don't think it's true about Noodles and Lars Frederiksen, though sometimes they look a bit alike. The hair.

It was Ron's grandmother, who Ron was living with. I've heard the thing about it being him screaming before "Session" before, but it still sounds like Dexter to me. Maybe it's just me.

"Vultures" may not have been composed in 1992--but it bears a sonic similarity to "Dirty Magic," which was on Ignition and was released in 1992. Or maybe both songs came out of the same time period?

Also credited on "Session" are Dexter, Noodles, and Noodles girlfriend/wife (I forget). Kinky.

I've also heard that Dexter's wife is not Alexa's mother, but I don't remember if it's been confirmed by Dexter himself--if you have an interview with that in it, I'd love to see it. However, I know he has never confirmed publicly who or what "Gone Away" is about, so the theory you suggest is just that--a theory.

The picture link is broken, but the stewardesses in the "I Choose" video are Theo Kogan (formerly the lead singer of the Lunachicks and frequently mistaken as Dexter's wife--she's the hot blonde with all the tattoos), Dexter's actual wife, and uhh...I forget who the third one is without seeing it.

Also Noodles was stabbed by a nazi skinhead in Germany.

Just something about the vultures theory, if you listen to Vultures on Huck it, the vocal track is different and of lower quality. A lower quality vocal track might fit in somewhere in Ignition, but i doubt its from then. Living in chaos also has a lot more Dj scratching than the CO1 version as well i think..

Baby Noodles is a baby in John Waters' movie "Pink Flamingoes." Raymond and Connie Marble kidnap female hitchikers, hold them prisoner in their basement, impregnate them, and sell the babies to lesbian couples. The first baby in the movie is, you guessed it, Noodles. IMDB says that one Max Mueller played Noodles---the son of Cookie Mueller, who plays Cookie in the film. But since the movie came out in 1972, that would make whoever played Noodles now 34 years old...and isn't our Noodles just a tiny bit older than that? ;)

Although Noodles and Lars are friends, they are not brothers in a familial sense at all.



Ron's mom makes Dexter sign some papers to Ron make the first tour, 'cuz he was only 16 yr old.
He was living with his grandmother, and because he was a minor, she was responsible for his welfare.



In the beginning of "Session" Ron yells "Fuck,fuck,fuck,fuck..."
Not 100% sure about this one…



At High School, Greg falled in love...his teacher
Never heard this one. Until I get a confirmed source, this is simply a rumor.



Dexter is the owner of Nitro Records
True. Dexter started the label in his kitchen in 1994.



Vultures was composed in 1992
Although it does bear a resemblance to "Dirty Magic," which itself is reminiscent of Nirvana's "Come As You Are," I'm not too sure about this one.



Kristine Luna composed "Session"
She co-wrote it with Dexter and a friend.



Kristine it's not the mother of Alexa, actually Alexa's mother was an old girlfriend of Dexter and died in a car accident, "Gone Away" it's about her.
Kristine is not Alexa's biological mother. The whereabouts of this other woman are unknown. The theory about "Gone Away" is reinforced by this fact. However, since Dexter does not like to talk about the song's true subject and it has never been made public in a reliable media outlet (and since I won't ask Dexter about it), it is nothing more than rumor at this point in time.

In the "I Choose" video, the flight attendants are (from front to back):
Kristine Holland (Dexter's wife)
Andrea Luna-Reece (Kristine's sister)
Theo Kogan (former Lunachicks frontwoman)

I think that Gone away was written for an ex wife/Girlfriend of Dexter that had died in a car accident, that being Alexa's mum... I read it in one of those 'Up close and personal' interviews they did with Dexter a while back, obviously, some fool in the media could have made it up... All the same, its a cute thing to do *write a song like that about someone* If ya get me.
And for Noodles being the adopted brother of Lars Fredrikson is a bit farfetched, don't you think?

My mate met Noodles at a gig in Wembley a couple of years ago, and Noodles told him he got the nickname because he used to 'Noodle' around on his guitar a lot. I think the rest of the band gave him that name.

once again i'll bitch about people and their gone away theories...

i'm so sick of it... clearly its something he doesn't like to talk about... now people will say "well he put it in the song so he should explain it" and shit like that that i've been told before for saying this... but does it really fucking matter to you who it is about? you people need to find your own personal connection to the song... it can have so much more meaning to you that way... i cry when i really listen to the song (not just play it as background noise) cause of my own connections to it...

i have a couple poems that are kind of written in that same type mood or theme that are true... i nearly cry every time i recite them to an audience but there are only like 3 people who know who they are about because i don't like talking about it... i only wrote them as a way to get it out of me so that i can move on... know that he did the same and stop trying to get it out of him...

whats important here is that you figure out who that song is about for you... not for someone else...

If I like lyrics of some song it's because I can imagine it deals with my own life...

I still don't really hear the 'help' in Gotta Get Away. It's just a randomly made scream. But the 'helps' when you reverse the 'fucks' of Session are pretty obvious.
