SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE ON KOREAN TV
Severe Tire Damage appeared on an MBC special about the Internet in January, 1997. At the time, MBC was one of only three television channels in Korea. The four-hour special featured interviews with many prominent computer scientists, but none as important as Severe Tire Damage. The band closed the first hour of the special; was featured during the second hour; and returned in the third hour for an interview with Steve. The torrent of fan mail from Korea continued for years. And all from the band that was correctly referred to by the Korean producers as "ridiculous".
