A bunch of bands no one has ever heard of lol. We have been around a few years I can't exactly remember. I was really young then.....
What’s the origin of that name and have you changed the band’s name before?
It's like a cross between the delirium tremors and a "Dick Tease"
Who writes your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs and do you think these topics will change over time?
Aren't most of the songs lyrics and some of the music but often time the band collaborates a lot on music it spans through politics sex and various topics of the human condition ...as well as a lot of silly songs about fucking.... but maybe that's the sex part..
What bands are currently inspiring the music that you’re making?
Good question, I love The Struts and a lot of old school Punk And Rock..... Deadboys Iggy And James Brown... Bowie lots of stuff that we take from and smash it into something current

Creating a situation live that starts to breathe on its own where everything becomes one big thing.... it's amazing and happens quite a bit at our shows...
