me a little bit history of the group?
we just so happened to be born in the same litter....so
we just kinda ended up with each other really. We
moved around alot when we was younger after the
split of our mother (Swedish) and father (british)
so i think with us all being only a year apart in
age and under the same influence, when me and Abby
started jammin in our loft, the rest just followed.
We couldnt play for shit but it was the only thing
that we loved doing so we kept at it n played our
first show a year later at our high school in
2005....and now here we are...
Please tell me a little about every member in the
group right now, age, family, work, interests and
something bad about everyone?
anyone ever told ya not to ask a girls age?!! Ha
we're all in our early twenteeeens! and when we're
not makin a bloody racket we're out getting drunk
and when we're not getting drunk we're pouring
pints at the local pub and trying to act sober.
hmmmm something bad about ourselves....come on
tour with us n find out for yourself!
Maid of ace, how did the name came up good name
anyway..…is it important to have a good name?
Which is the best bandname you know??
really? I´ts abit crap....but its the first name
we came up with n shit sticks....its basically
Maid, as in our maiden names and young unmarried
woman, and Ace being all our initials are A.C.E
....or somethin like that! ha....i dont think band
name is important, if you make good music people
will like your name anyways. We played with a band
called "The Horny Bitches" before, ha wont forget
You have good raw sound? Is that music which
is real! so yeah, but we like all kinds of music,
not just 'punk'....whatever suits the mood ya know...
What´s the best thing with playing live?
crowd of course! you Never know whats gonna happen!...people
come to watch us and we come to watch them! It´s
entertaining for us too!
And where is best to play?
the world? Germany so far....sick scene out there,
London of course and our hometown Hastings, theres
still lots of countries we have' nt played yet,
Sweden being one of them!!! ....we'll get there
How is it to play this sort of music in England?
Do you have any advantages because of your all
as anywhere else, theres still punks in England
ya'know! ha Girls, boys, black, white, I think we
have an advantage coz we can write a half decent
tune. If someone comes to watch us coz they like
our faces then so be it!.....they'll soon realise
we aint so pretty when we start shoutin'.
How would you describe your music in three words?
What does punk mean to you, is it only a word or
is it a lifestyle?
us it means D.I.Y.....DO IT YOURSELF!!!....and
thats what we do! its our-way or the highway!....maybe
thats why no big label will touch us....we can
only hope. ha
How do you see on downloading, mp3 and that stuff?
all good, but you dont make as much money from
it...The only reason we havnt put up our stuff
digitally yet is coz we want people to buy our cds,
we aint rich! we need to make money to carry on
goin'...However we're releasing Our current album
on Vinyl, which will include a free download of
the album too.
How is it to live in England now? Politically?
not a political band, but we've always been pretty
skint n sometimes had to go on the dole and now
you cant even do that if your under 25 or some
shit....hows the young-ones gonna get drunk on the
streets now u tight bastards! .
Is there any good bands from England now?
noticed alot more female powered bands springing
into action of late!....and some refreshing new
bands like "Hands Off Gretel" is good to see..
What do you know about Sweden?
snows ALOT in winter and theres alot of moose, we
only lived there for 6 months when we was younger,
even went to school for a bit.....its a really
beautiful country, but we missed England too much,
home is where the heart is! Would love to go back
there, so will have to get some shows! HOOK US UP!
Your lyrics, who does them and what influences
me (Ali) and Anna, we're the brains in this bitch
ha....it could be anything, whatever we're feeling
at the time....the best songs come out of nowhere,
when your not even trying to write a song....when
your on the bog or sumink...ha
Do you think that music(lyrics and so on) can
change anyones life)I mean people who listens to
theres been songs and lyrics that have changed my
life I´m sure!
Are you doing any covers live?
"Rules & Regulations' by Fuzzbox, who we got the
honour of performing it with one of their membeers
Maggie at Rebellion festival which was bad
ass!....we also sometimes cover 'Im a Cliche' by
Please tell me a funny thing which have happened
during your career and under some gig? -I´ve had a
guy take off he's 'skirt' n throw it and it land
on my face! o reveal hes butt naked underneath!!!....not
that funny for me, but probly funny to you...

favoriteconcerts and five most important things in

go get it
it boring with interviews? Which is the most
stupid question you ever have got??
we're just Lazy! .....errr......'how did you meet'....WE'RE
SISTERS FOR THE LAST TIME! DO A SECONDS RESEARCH.
Do you understand that reviewers always compare
bands to other bands? Is that disturbing when you
try to something own?
love bands that sound different, its refreshing,
We're not trying to sound like anyone els, but
everyone sounds like someone else before them
whether it be faintly or obvioulsy....we dont
think we're Special, we just write wat we feel....
