You look really punkish, is it important to do that when you play this sort of music?
-We think it is important for us because it is a way of life for us. We
know that not everyone wants to look punk, but for us it is an everyday thing.
What does punk mean for you?
-Punk for me means no rules, have fun, have a laugh, do what you want
to do in life coz we don't have that long to make our mark on society.
How does the average Casualties fan look like?
-Well I think most kids that like the Casualties are like us and they
find that they enjoy the music but also see punx like themselves so they
relate more. Also there's allot of people that like us that don't look
punk,sometimes hardcore fans and thats o.k. too.
Do you have good contact with your fans, in which way

conects with our fans so they have allot in common with us and we don't
act like rockstars we are the same people as our fans.

-I think e-mail is great it is cheaper than the phone and it brings the
whole punk scene together. You can check out bands from all over the
world with the internet, the only thing I don't like is the chat rooms because
people talk too much shit about everything.

it is important
because it keeps punx and skins informed of what is on the label and
what is coming out .
How is a good gig with Casualties

when everyone has a drink, a good time, when they
go for a pogo, when they buy a record off the band and maybe some pretty
girls to be with hee hee.
