Where did the band name come from?

We weren’t allowed on the squash court with our black soled shoes so we decided to make a statement.

How did you form?

Bumped into each other in a crowded room, it was love at first sight.

Hard rock funk.

What key tracks should people immediately check out? (include links) 


Who/What are your influences, musical and/or otherwise? 

Too many to mention.

What are some of the most memorable experiences you’ve had as a band?

Getting to this point as a band and getting the opportunity to play for an audience.

What is it that you love about the scene? Your genre’s scene?

Love playing in front of a crowd and seeing them enjoy our music.

Tell us about one of your proudest moments? 

Playing our originals in front of an appreciative crowd.

What are your plans for the future?

Record, hear our music played on the radio, and touring.

What makes you laugh?

The jokes bandied about when we rehearse.

What pisses you off? 

Everything, that’s why we write the songs we do.
