for the late reply. We have been very busy. We will send you a shirt but we
only have a large size.
Thanx for the interview, its been fun... we had some trouble answering some
questions coz we're dumb cunts, but we did our best. The questions were
answered by Chunga and Luke, hope you enjoy and have a laugh.
was written in june-2008. And the band is The Worst!
-The Worst started in 2001 playing backyards and parties then moved into the
pub scene in 2002. Since then we have played every punk venue in Melbourne
and had a couple of tours to Sydney. After a line up change in 2006 our fan
base grew which led to supporting a few international bands such as
Anti-Nowhere league, D.O.A and the Exploited. We released our long overdue
self titled EP in 2007 and now continue playing as many shows as possible to
promote our music.
Please tell me a little
about every member, age, interests, work, family and something really bad
about every one?
-We're all in our mid 20's except our bassist Tom who is a bit younger and
we all work full time to support ourselves. A bad thing about us is that
we're all lazy cunts who take too long to do stuff, such as recording our
album we've been talking about for years, making merch that we've been
talking about for years and getting our arses on tour... which we've been
talking about for years.
Punk in Australia, how is it to play it?
-The Punk scene is fucking small in Australia in comparison to other
countries, but it does exist. Melbourne seems to have the strongest scene.
There's a lot of old school punks who have been around for years and now
there seem to be a lot of newer punk kids coming to shows which is fucking
They wore a lot of good bands back in time in Australia, any favourites?
-Bastard Squad were around in the 80's and are still going strong today.
Depression were rad! Cold Chisel was the bomb!
Mohawk in Australia, how..s that?
-Mohawks are alright in Australia, but alot of punks cop shit for having
mohawks from redneck wankers and homeboy cunts. Fuckers!
No one cares, what do you mean?
-When we were younger we used to cop alot of shit for looking the way we did
and the song is pretty much about no one giving a shit about us... so lets
go get pissed.
Have done any more records than the Ep? If you have how can I get it??
-We have a demo we recorded back in the early days which is pretty much non
existent, a few songs from the demo were on the Reckless Life 7" split with
3 other Aussie bands which is now out of print, and we also have two tracks
on a Snapshot records compilation called "Time to Pay Up #5" Unfortunately
all these records are no longer available.
Which type of people comes to your concerts?
-Punks, skins and anyone who wants to have a good time.
What does punk mean to you, is it only a word or is it a lifestyle?
-Punk is like a fart... it sounds awesome and it stinks
How would you describe your music in three words?
-Hard heavy animal
How is the reviews you have got for the new CD?
-We haven't had any bad feedback which is surprising considering we recorded
everything ourselves... in a toilet.
Do you care about reviews?
-Its always nice to get a good review, but we couldn't really care less if
you don't like our music. We're the Worst... you're not supposed to like us.
How is it to live in Australia, I mean politically?
-We don't really care for politics, it's all a pile of shit! To quote
Chaotic Dischord "Fuck religion, Fuck politics, Fuck the lot of you!"

Much interviews? Is it boring?
-We done a few interviews over the years, it can be quite fun sitting back
with a few drinks answering stupid questions and feeling like rockstars.

-(Hot Swedish Girl) Q: Will you fuck me?
(the Worst) A: Yes we will!

Your record label is it your own or?
-We're not on any label... yet.
New stuff like My space, facebook and so on.... is it good or how do you see
on these things?
-They're definitely a good thing for bands to get their music out to the
world, and if you hear about a band you can check there songs out on myspace
to see if you like them or not before going to buy their cd. It is also a
very good networking tool and for getting in touch with other bands.
How do you see on Mp3 and downloading and so on? is it good or bad for
-We let people download our stuff and hate when bands dont let you download
their songs off myspace and shit. Any publicity is good publicity and if
someone likes your songs, then they can download them and show their mates,
which will lead to them checking your band out and so on and so on. It's not
about selling your music, it's about people hearing it.
Which is the biggest band you have played with on a concert?
-The Exploited for sure.
And which band do you really like to support if itís possible?
-Probably the Casualties since they were definitely our biggest influences
when we started this band.
Is it a dream you have to unite all the world punks, do you see that there
is many different styles of punks which don..t go so well together?
-To unite all the punks and take over the world is definitely our intention.
Imagine a world of punks it would be fuckin funny shit. Runnin around
smashin shit gettin pissed we would die out after a year or 2 but it would
be sick while it lasted.
Futureplans for the band?
-We've been wanting to record a full length album for quite some time now,
so that's definitely on the cards. After that, we'll release it, try to go
on a world tour to dominate the world!!!
Something more to add?
-Maybe someday we can come play in Sweden, fuck your beautiful babes, piss
on your blue and yellow flag and kick Stefan Edbergs ass in a game of table
tennis. That's PUNK ROCK!!!
