Responses provided by the verbose Fred Erskine.

Did you get your name from that sleazy town in Texas? Since you’re from Chicago, you should’ve named yourselves Chicago.
There’s already a Chicago.

You guys are an indie supergroup of sorts. How did you all come together?
We did just like The Beatles told us.

You guys are accomplished musicians – was Rush an influence on your music?
Absolutely not.

Some would say that slick musicianship doesn’t belong in punk rock. How do you respond to that argument?
It doesn’t.

List your guilty pleasures.
No.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Musician.
