was raised by wolves after being deleted by the mainstream.
That and general antisocial behavior lead to being
did you parents say when you told them what you would
did not do anyone any favors. I don't think that they
really cared. It was best for all involved that I
removed myself. So I did and it suits me just fine.
My Family are my brothers in my band.
and precice. Artless and militant. Mine.
you as "out there" as your music suggests?
this look like a hobby to you? Does it sound like
a walk in the park? Do you think that anyone would
really choose this?!!! Look, you are gonna die. Get
what you have to get done and crush all that gets
in your way. Does that answer your question?
your personal favourite hit and why?
is nothing like a good headbutt. That and a six point
the smallest and largest crowd you have ever performed
2 guys. I introduced them to each other and we played
a great set.
The 04' Sydney BDO (Big Day Out) main stage. Strapping

don't matter. Play every show like your life depends
on it or don't play at all.
are your current projects?
write,Train and am recording album number 3. That
keeps me pretty busy for the time being. We are out
of here to tour the US and Canada mid year so that
is taking allot of my energy as well.
conviction, Power and revenge. The pure moment of
sonic bliss that comes with being up there. I could
lie and give you all the PC answers that everyone
trots out but I wont waste your time. I am not in
a race with anyone but myself and I am a harsh opponent.
I want to be at the top of my game and the people
who hate me are fuel and I thank them . The fans are
the closest thing that I have ever felt to being loved.
That and there is nothing like loud music to let you
know you exist. I don't claim to be
anything that my fans are not. We are all in the shit
together. I hope that I am loud enough when they cant
be. I owe my life to the Sikfuk nation and my own
the biggest misconception about you?
don't have enough time or patience to cover that ....Trust
me. Personal fave? That I have a soft side.
a typical day for you?
as interesting as you think. I tend to sleep all day
as I don't like mixing with the day dwellers. They
offend my good taste. I spend allot of time communicating
with the extended family that our fans have constructed.
I write and read about 2 books or so a day. I record
with Ash [ guitarist ] as often as we can. Train.
Listen to allot of good music. Attempt to look myself
in the eye once a day. Try it. If you do it right
and don't lie to yourself it is an achievement to
be proud of.
do you do to relax?
you can tell me then we will both know.
note: These guys rock. You need to listen to them
now. If you don't like the attitude, get over it!
