Ironic 1993 John Malm interview resurfaces.

"I devised a scam... that's what I want to do for a living." So back in the day, Eric Olsen interviewed John A. Malm, Jr.

It's really not as inflammatory as my creative use of ellipsis might indicate, but as Eric himself says, the interview "now fairly screams of irony." Another choice gem: "You may be able to get away with it for awhile, but eventually it all catches up with you. There are a lot of slimeballs in this business, but it tends to weed itself out."

Okay, so there's a lot more, but you can read it for yourself. This interview was conducted for a book called Networking Music Industry, a book Eric Olsen helped pen back in 1993. Thanks for posting the link on ETS, Janey!
