Transcript from an Interview with Ska Trek Destroyers.
We're a three piece SKA-Punk/OI band from around Reading in England. We aren't old enough to be left to our own devices but we do the best we can. Honestly have no idea when STD started. it has always been the same band though. Before Ska Trek, Dudehed and Turtle played together in a number of bands (4Q, Alco-Punk) and then ALCO-Punk lost its guitarist and we recruited DEZ, became Ska Trek Destroyers but kept the song "my words fall on deaf ears". so that's how it all happened.
Why this name?
Ummm... it just came to me. like most things.
Do you play live?
Love playing live. have only played a few gigs but more keep coming. any time any place.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's good. cuz I'll be fucked if I can afford all the songs I listen to for free on this
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Never. we love loads of bands on big labels (NOFX, etc) but you can't beat garage punk rock.
Operation Ivy mainly. especially their attitude and style. other influences from Mad Caddies, NOFX, Bad Religion, GBH, Anti-Flag, Sublime, Skatalites, etc.
Nowhere, it's all bollocks
Hey what about this as a gimmick? we will destr-OI you!....ahem
