Russell Gordon: Served a mission in Korea.

What was the last concert you saw before you went on your mission?

nn

Hootie and the Blowfish'I don’t want anyone to know that. I only went because I won tickets on the radio. I got to be onstage, too. The guy from Arrested Development opened for them.

Did your musical tastes evolve?

nn

Before I left Utah, I listened to a lot of punk rock'Bad Religion, Fugazi, Agent Orange, the Descendents. When I came home, I listened to a lot of techno because they were really into it in Korea. Even shoe stores would have radios outside with speakers blaring techno music. It didn’t matter what they were selling. It made me want to dance and not be a missionary. It made me want to make out with Korean girls.
