Biography

Raleigh Theodore Sakers is both man and myth. Featured in three soliloquies on Sublime’s Robbin’ The Hood, we hear the rantings of an obviously disturbed man who is obsessed with both science fiction and blow jobs. At first these three tracks just seem bizarre, and they are. However, after listening to the album a few times, Raleigh really starts to get funny.

But who the hell is he?
A tough but valid question. Here’s what we can find:

“He’s just a nut case who made tapes of himself and we decided to put him on our record,” Wilson said.
“We thought everyone should hear him,” Bud added.
It seems Sakers has disappeared, but the band would like to locate him and put him on a cross-country poetry circuit.

The above comes from an article appearing in The Lumberjack, the school newspaper for California’s Humbolt University. This article was supposedly written after a phone interview with Bud and Eric, but got many facts wrong about the band. This info is either a case of bad reporting or the guys fucking with a reporter, which is not unheard of. A somewhat more reliable account:

Heckler: How did you guys hook up with Raleigh Theodore Sakers?
Brad:Umm…our old drummer Kelly. His brother had a friend that worked in a halfway home. He was in there one day and there was this fuckin’ wierdo (Raleigh), and he was just going off. So our buddy just got his tape recorder and pressed record. Then Raleigh started hallucinating and thought that he was making a science fiction magazine.
