"I think you just get better at what you're doing. A lot of the early songs, when people say you're a three chord punk band, they're absolutely right. However, on Suffer there were songs that really were songs; verse, chorus, bridge, these are not three chord songs at all. I think that simply has to do with trying not to write the same material over and over gain, so you have to write different kinds of music. It's not different styles, but just expanding on what you're playing, so they became more song like."
Drummer Bobby Schayer replies:
"Suffer is what punk rock is about. I just think that over time you progress as a songwriter and all that, but for me Suffer was the rebirth, that was where How Could Hell... left off."
It was released on 9.8.88 and it sold 4,000 copies, which was cool to them considering how utterly insignificant Epitaph was at the time. In 1988 the album was voted best album of the year by the editors of Trust Magazine and Maximum Rock and Roll and by the readers (and the editor) of Flipside.
