Agnostic Front
02/10/00 (interview with Roger Merit)

Please give a brief history of the band, including current line up.

The band started in 1980 out of the NYC punk movement by VinnieStigma. I joined in 1982 followed by Rob Kabula in 1993 then by Jimmy Collettiin 1984. Todays line up remains the same except that Rob Kabula has left and is replaced by Mike Gallo.

Discography.

Please go to our website www.Agnostic-Front.com  forDiscography.


Why did you choose the name Agnostic Front?

Vinnie chose the name because he wanted something more than a band. He wanted a movement called Agnostic Front.

What is your favourite country to play in? How do you find the audiences differ in the UK and the rest of the world?

I think I like Europe in general the best but we do like it everywhere in the world and the response is great everywhere!

What is the highlight and what is the lowest point in the bands history?

I like to think that we have always been  at a middle point.


Would Agnostic Front allow one of their song sappear in a commercial? If yes, what would you like it to be advertising?

Sickness for a tampon comercial


If you could see any band play live, either of the past or present who would it be?

Generation X


Do you think street music will rise again?

I believe it still is.


Plans, gigs and releases planned for 2001.

Yes, my solo debute called Roger Miret and the Disasters which will be out by February on Hellcat Records. It is a total NYC street punk/oi record. Check it out!

Any final comments?
