Neon Garage Punk Step.

Dead Kennedys, Nirvana, Jay Reatard.

3. If you'd have the chance to work with any film director, who would that be?
Park Chan-Wook (Oldboy - Korean director).

4. Tell us a bit about the making of these songs.
These songs came together rather quickly, as they were some of the first tracks we came up with. We just wanted to be raucous and loud, then we decided to be raucous and loud and write songs about villains. Australia is a country built by convicts, we have a rich history of colourful characters, we are trying to bring them to life in these songs. 
We recorded live to half inch reel to reel in the top room of our house, its honest.....or as honest as a record about dishonesty can be.

5. Do you still buy CDs/vinyl/ tape?
Steal shit loads of vinyl..
