How did you start?

Joe (bassist) was doing a band called the Ergs! who were/are one of my favorite bands of all time. I would go see them all the time and Joe made me an ALL CD-R and a we’ve been friends since. When the Ergs were breaking up I conned Joe into starting a band with me and here we are 8 years later.

Where are you based?

New Jersey, USA… and our drummer is in Maryland.

Please give an example of your music writing process?

Lately it’s been Joe writing songs, and bringing them to the table for everyone to work on together and fine tune.

What are you working on right now?

We are 1 song away from completing a new 12″ ep! Should be out next year.

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

I have a 3 year old daughter and I work customer service 50 hours a week. They both very much effect my music.

How would you describe your music genre?


Do you know any music theory?


What are your plans for the future?

Headed to Australia for the very first time next week and then coming home to wrap up writing and recording this new record!

How did you get into music?

I sucked at sports and then heard Black Flag and the Ramones. I started a band and my parents hated it. They wanted me to play sports. They assumed I was doing drugs but those posers had never even heard of Minor Threat. 20 years later and this hobby has taken me all over the world.

What are you listening to at the moment?

Dow Jones and the Industrials new 12″ complete works.

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?

Oh boy. Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy, Richie (and CJ!)

When are you playing next?

Next Sunday in Perth!
