Name, where are you from?
The K's, Earlestown.

Describe your style in three words?
Best In Earlestown.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
There’s too many to choose from, I’d probably have to go for one of The View gigs in my early teens. That’s when I was starting to learn what its all about and they definitely helped open my eyes.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
I’d go for the Jam and The Clash. No contest really.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
I’ve been around Punk since I was very young because of my Dad and it's still all any of us listen to now. That’s definitely my main influence musically. The way the songs are written and things they’re written about just leaves me in awe. Nothing comes close.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Erm… Jesus. See what crack is there.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
I think Gorilla, Manchester is probably all of our favourite. It's by far the biggest headline we’ve played to date and to sell it out with only one single out was class. The crowd were mental from start to finish.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Unsung? I’d probably say, Ryan or Gary Jarman. The Cribs are one of the best bands of my lifetime but if I asked someone in the street about either of them they’d probably have no idea!
