DR : So how things? How’s the winter treating you?
winter stinks, i mean its kinda cool, like doing spin outs in the snow with your car or throwing snowballs and things, skiing and wearing cool jackets. but I’m over it. bring me some sun burn
we started out like 3 years ago, as friends we hang out a bunch and decided to transform our friendships energy into musical sound and it came out sounding like a garbage truck driven down a mountain
DR: How many records do you have out?
just one 7″ on reaper. got a demo tape and cd too for fun
DR: Reaper Seems like a cool Label are they looking after you?
they are the best. shit runs so smooth and sexy, they take care of us boys
DR: What Bands have you played with recently and where do you play a lot?
we play a bunch around the jersey shore, our area, we will play any show with any band, we just like rocking places. we are lucky to have played with bands like bouncing souls, cro mags, sick of it all, the adolescents we toured break away form richmond va, awesome guys
DR: What kind of style do you go for? Who would you liken yourself to?
shore style, its something of an unknown nature that is felt , its like if you put an alien into the micro wave for 15 minutes but instead of getting all worked its just even more outrageous to the point that its not then going to space but bring all of outer space to your front door so you step out but really your walking into a vortex of intergalactic magic, your pants are on fire and your girlfriend is pregnant with our next record. that’s our style
we played with violent reaction and they ripped
DR: What’s your favourite year/era in Hardcore
man, i can’t say for sure, but def before the internet took it over
DR: What bands local to your area are good right now?
blind justice, they rip,
some young ass hood rats doing something called Krust. its dirt as fuck. like it
DR: How and when did you really get into Hardcore?
i was a youngster little annoying kid goofing off with skateboards around 98, and my buddys older sisters boyfriend thought we were funny, gave us minor threat and judge tapes and we would play them and fuck up his parents living room, eventually started bumming rides to local punk gigs around the shore and getting really into new bands, seeing live music that you can slam dance with smelly weird kids was so cool to me, actually being involved, then we started buying records, tapes and jamming them. older kids around the shore would hook us up, because thats how it goes around here.
DR: Who would you like to go on tour with?
anybody. we like to play. would play your cousins high school grad party.
DR: Are you a fan of Punk or Hip Hop or both?
i like both, i like music that makes you think differently, question things, rebel music, challenge authority and make a difference
DR: You’re a Contractor day to day right? How is that?
its cool sometimes, sometimes I’m over it, i don’t know what i want to be when i bro up yet.
DR: Is there much to do where you live in your spare time?
hell yeah. fishing for food, seeing bands, fucking about with mates out side of shitty clubs and curing at normal looking dorky people, playing sports, play cards, experiment with sex, feel the ocean, making fires and buying whatever you want. get tattooed by cool ass dudes, curse off red neck hill billlys, throw stuff off the bridge , jump in a bush, touch women’s legs, break bottles behind wawa, eat crunchy snacks at night on the floor during a movie with fiends, dance , ride a skateboard through the alleys, piss on the grass while going middle finger to the sky hahahah
