Who are their biggest influences musically?
Who are their favorite current bands?
What do they enjoy about playing punk rock, as opposed any other genre?
Why does Asia love good punk so much more than North America?
Favorite guitar manufacturer?
Thoughts on internet piracy?
Thoughts on the future of the music industry?
Which country have you never visited that you would most like to visit & why?

Shit guys, I check out skatepunkers almost everyday. If there's anything you ever want to know, feel free to ask.

Haha, shit Steve, you could at least pretend that tracking you guys down took all of my journalistic know-how :p

I was talking to Jay, he has a big stack of questions to get through, anyway!

Thank you Alan and SoD ...really interesting, especially the idea about skate punk getting to the core of punk made me think!

Bracket is such a cool band. 2RAK500 is a classic.
"Look at your life, cause I am sorry but that is it. And you think you're better off this way. But I think it's sad that you can't see. And you think it's better off this way but when the pleasure fades one day, where will you turn and where will you run? When it's all through and there's no more fun will there be time to turn it around? When you look up and ask Him will you be too late or be found?"
