#7 Elegant Trash

Elegant Trash is Lee Austin Hoffman like Nine Inch Nails is Trent Reznor. The difference is Trent Reznor doesn’t have his band practices in the parking lots of train stations. Lee is one hardcore music making dude, and we sat down with him in his kitchen to talk about music, shows, his zine, and hear him play a few songs.
