You formed 10 years ago, how has the progressed
over this period and
are you most proud of?
Due to many different drummers and bass players that
have come and gone over those years, sounds change. I
think the band has remained consistent in keeping
their music strong as when they first started.
Which is your favourite Lower Class Brats release? And
sums up the band and why?
On every release there has been highlights, so it;s
hard to say.
I think "Safety-Pinned and Sick" is what
it's all about.
What does the term 'clockwork' mean to you?
You know life throws you curve balls all the time, so
being "clockwork" means to keep things moving and
hopefully most of the pieces of the puzzle fit. hahaha
How did your recent European tour go? And where are LCB best recieved?
Europe went really well. Varius Booking did an
excellent job and kept everyone happy and informed.
Everyone ate well and met lots of cool people,
especially in Germany.
California seems to be a mecca of good taste! They
love the BRATS!
What is the best and worst experience you have had on
tour? And what
bands would you really like to tour with?
Nights with a great set and meeting cool people always
is a good thing. Running out of gas, being around
wierdos and sketchy nazi types is not.
How have you seen your audience and scene in
general change over the
Kids are crazy and now they are all on PCP and doing
stuff like snorting petrol, but they like the L.C.B.
so they can't be totally wrong!
What process goes into writing the lyrics and
Bones writes most of the lyrics, and thee rest of the
band spits out the riffs.
Tell the readers 5 facts they will not know about the band?
One person is a high school teacher.
One person likes doo-doo.
One person is in love with safety-pins.
One person thinks he can fly like an eagle.
Plans, gigs and releases planned for 2005.
Planning to play many gigs in North America, sign to a record
label and work on a new album, and ... some
other stuff, which I'm not allowed to speak about due
to legal regulations. Ah... America.
Any final comments?
Yes. Punks on the streets!
