TERRY MALTS: If the Ramones had the Smiths' sensibility and were on Dischord.
Who are you wearing?
Phil: 45 Grave.
Corey: This is Levi's, actually.
Who would take the longest to kill in the band?
Phil: Probably Nathan because he's the fittest. Corey and I don't really work out except when we work our livers out.
Nathan: I'm easy to find though, because I am usually on a couch or on a golf course. Just wait until I'm done with the hole.
Describe your perfect weekend.
Phil: Personnally, it would be hanging out with my girlfriend. I know, it's kind of cheesy. And we would be doing nothing. We would be sitting around eating snacks.
Corey: As long as there are beers involved, it's good for me.
Weirdest thing you went to the doctor for?
Phil: Two years ago I broke my ankle sliding, trying to do like a Duke of Hazzard slide on a parked car. I think that was pretty weird because I wasn't drunk either. I was just being stupid.
Corey: I got really constipated once and I went to the doctor to see if there was a turd stuck.
Nathan: I have never been to the doctor in my life.
How much bass is too much bass?
Nathan: We'll ask these guys when they're done with their soundcheck. [Ed. note: While we were interviewing the band, some electronic band was soundchecking the hell of their songs].
What's your favorite Ramones trivia?
Corey: They had one member named Elvis Ramone, who is the drummer from Blondie.
Any tips for aspiring touring bands?
Phil: I would say, Wet Wipes. We actually nicknamed this tour the anal destruction tour because everywhere, in every gas station, there is the worst toilet paper.
Nathan: And we are constantly eating hot sauce because that is just how we eat. And maybe bring a sleeping bag to sleep on.
What is your favorite scene in Mallrats?
Corey: My favorite scene in Mallrats? There are a lot of good scenes in that. What does he say to his friend when he opens the door? ''Holy shit! If it isn't mon frère''. I like the fact that he's playing NHL 94 on Genesis. [Ed. note: He is playing NHL ALL STAR on Sega Saturn].
If Terry Malts was a liquor, what kind of liquor would it be?
Nathan: Malt Liquor!
Who is Terry Malts?
Nathan: My uncle. He just got out of prison. So we decided to pay tribute to him.
Do you have a message for the kids?
Phil: Be true to yourself.
Corey: Drop out of school.
Nathan: Eat your vegetables.
