nofx, rancid, pennywise, operation ivy, belinda carlisle, against all authority. basically any good punk band out there. oh yea, bob's mom too, and beer!!
TELL ME ABOUT THE LYRICS?
the lyrics are written by bob. they convey the messege that racism sucks, authority sucks, fuck the government, and some are about girls.
WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON SOCIETY TODAY?
we view society as superficial and annoying. we think government authority sucks.
WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON MUSIC OF TODAY?
we like music.
WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC OF THE 70'S AND 80'S?
we do a disco song that kicks ass, and some 80's cover songs. we do the clash, belinda carlisle (made punk). we also enjoy a good 80's hair band to laugh at. i heard bob like to headbang.
HOW MANY LIVE SHOWS HAS THE BAND PLAYED?
hmmmmm....probably somewhere between 10 to 15. we've played in grand island, kearney and north platte.
WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR HEAD BEFORE THE FIRST SHOW?
isn't anyone else going to come?
DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS FOR RECORDING AND RELEASING A TAPE OR CD?
we've recorded at the place where we practice. it wasn't the best quality. we want to record a cd, but we are all pretty broke.
DO YOU THINK THAT IF THE BAND WAS BASED IN A BIGGER CITY, YOU WOULD BE FARTHER ALONG AS FAR AS AIRPLAY, FAN BASE, AND LIVE SHOWS?
good question. i'd like to get away from north platte. there are alot of people who won't turn down there backstreet boys or puff daddy cd long enough to hear something new. plus, there are a lot of trendy posers that pretend to be punk, but they are faithful to a not so certain christian band. they suck!! we do actually have a small fan base here though.
WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE COME TO THE DF SHOWS?
our friends, stray cats and dogs, nuns, groupies for the bands we play with, and people that we pay to come. just jokin...i think.

people who like music, people who like loud music, people who like loud punk music.
