¤ ¤ Interview With The Band ¤ ¤
Q. 1 ¤ How would you guys describe your music?
Chet : Highly Orchestrated Crap
Pat : Remember that song Funky Town?
Zak : I'd say that we have obvious influences, but have no particular concern for what punk is supposed to sound like
Q. 2 ¤ Do you guys ever get into arguments amongst the band, and if so, does it affect the music at all?
Chet : no, but we bitch at each other just to make things interesting
Pat : only about what kinds of beer we drink. but beer has nothing to do with music. unless you drink while you play. which we do
Zak : i think my emotions get out of control and affect the way i play as with chet and pat. but i wouldn't say we really argue
Q. 3 ¤ Which of your songs is you favorite, and why?
Chet : kevin's song, because it's about the loss of a good guy
Pat : any song i can play all the way through without fucking up
Zak : i'd have to say open ended paragraph, because although it's not the most true to our sound, it shows how we can sound if we want.
Q. 4 ¤ What was your most embarassing moment on stage with the band?
Chet :it's embarassing enough being on stage with those two assholes
Pat :it's embarassing enough being on stage with those two assholes
Zak : it's embarassing enough being on stage with those two assholes
Q. 5 ¤ If you were a sex toy, what would you be, and why?
Chet : the kind that doesn't get used on men, because i'm a raging homophobe
Pat : i'd be a transformer so i could play for two teams. robots in disguise
Zak : i have enough trouble trying to figure out where i'm going with my life to try to figure out where i'd go if i were a sex toy
