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
