Reporter: So, Lee - lead guitarist for one of the less known punk bands out there who still manage to make a profit in today's modern musical world. Let's start with your latest release, Fight Back. Already getting sales within the first days of release. How do you feel about that?
Lee: I'm certainly glad that we are actually getting sales. It means we're getting listened to and people are enjoying our music. That's all we can ever ask for. That's the reason we even entered this business anyway - we wanted our music to be heard by everyone with our interests. If people don't like our stuff, that's fine. We're not everyone's favourite. But we want to be that band that when you turn on the radio and hear our song, you know who its by.
Reporter: Heard by a few is an understatement: people are hearing your music worldwide. How can a band who started off small in Knoxville, touch nearly the entire planet with your music?
Lee: You always have to start small. Don't go off planning on conquering the universe right from the off. You'll never be able to manage that. We started our journey playing small gigs in town and then decided to go on a short tour round a couple of states. It seems that paid off. When Derek went on family vacation to Britain - we laughed when he said that (all the rain) - he met our band manager Haza. So then he became part of our crew and it went from good to amazing. He's got so many friends in everything: graphics, radio, TV...I think we lost count after he named the fiftieth. We got on POM Records and then got some tracks on our local radio. My parents nearly died of a heart attack when they heard my name. It took a bit of explaining...
Reporter: I'm sure. To finish off, any plans that you know of for the future?
Lee: I'm not sure if Mr Jones explained previously, but I just really don't think we'll manage the monthly release next time. Maybe we'll get a single out, but then we'd look like a band who don't value our music. That's just not true. We love our music! We want our fans to get something new all the time. But sometimes, it's just not possible. Cash just isn't something we have at the moment.
Reporter: Thank you Lee, for the opportunity to interview. See you next time.
