How did you get the idea for your band name?
Truckee, California.
Whats your myspace link or any other links you want to give us?

Who are you and where are you all from?
I'm from Memphis, TN. Peat is from England and luckily they chased him out and he came here. Ott is from Boston, MA. Hemiway is from La Jolla, CA.

How was your band formed?
Well...hmmm...long story made short...found by wolves, we were brought up as brothers in a Timber Wolf pack in the Northwest reserve of wait...that's the long um the short was completely accidental...someone thought Peat and I were in a band and they offered us a gig. We took it. We had to immediately write songs and get the band together. We did. People kept offering us gigs, we kept taking them. was too late. We became a band.

What band has influenced you the most?
Me? Well...picking one kinda sucks doesn't it? Well... Creedence Clearwater Revival.

What do you try to have people get out of your music?
Having fun, not taking any crap, doing what you believe in, and hope.

What inspries your lyrics? What are they all about?
Movies, books, people. Our screwed up perception of living and dealing with life.

What makes you different from other bands out there?
Heck...there's only one Peat, Cady, Ott, and Hemiway!

Have a CD out? If so how can we get it?
Yes, we have 4 cd's out. iTunes, record stores, internet outlets, and the back of my car!

If you could give advice to a starting band or musician, what would you say?
Do it 'cause you love it. Write what excites you and get out there and give it to people.

What do you guys like to do on the road? favorite part...the road. Meeting people, experiencing new places, just being a part of life, not watching on the sidelines.

Do you have any crazy stories?
Yes, but since I don't know you AND I'm not under the influence, you will have to wait for those to come out another time. Ha!

Do you have any upcoming shows?
We're performing at the San Diego Music Awards (Nominated for best rock album), then the Adams Avenue Street Festival with Mike Watt.

What do you think about UFOs?
After we escaped they haven't tried to get us back. I wonder why?

What are your views on the war thats going on today?
Invading and Killing without reason. Not something I'm for really. I say without reason because I don't consider "strategic positioning and control of the oil fields" a good reason. America has never cared about the Middle East except for that reason. Heck, most Americans don't know the capital of Canada. So don't tell me we're there to save the people. Okay...done ranting on that one.

What were some of your favorite bands growing up?
CCR, Beatles, Rolling Stones, T Rex, Led Zepplin, Burt Bacharach, Mott the Hoople, David Bowie, Roxy Music, etc...whew...I could go on for days...

Anything else you want to say to fans or anyone reading this interview?'s just me Cady answering these questions. The rest of the band would have undoubtedly different answers to this interview. Now get off the computer and get out there! laughing
