There are many band influences for us, but mostly the LA scene is what got us interested and involved in the community.

Playing shows in the greater Los Angeles area, writing new songs, and hopefully releasing a tape soon!

Q5. What do you value most in music life?
The fans, the screaming, the creaming, the energy, the participation, the excitement!!!!!

Q6. What was the first tape, record or CD you bought for yourself and when?
Probably Blink 182, or Smashmouth, maybe a lil Nirvana, or some Smashing Pumpkins.

Q7. What is most favorite music now?
