Winning Streak - Whichever Path You Take (Review)

Formerly known as Illegal Operation, Winning Streak is a fast melodic band that formed all the way back in 2003 and they were active until around 2006, over a decade has past and they reunited to release this record "Whichever Path You Take". This album came as a shock to me, especially when I heard about all the people that have features on this record, crazy amount of talent such as Mike Herrera (MxPx) and Gunner McGrath (Much The Same).

Messages
Right away, many drawbacks to Much The Same's 2006 album "Survive". I stopped this song, and listened to a Much the Same song, they are similar in all the right ways. This song got me hyped up to hear what the rest of the album had in store for me, this track was rad, Especially with the reminder of Much The Same.

Coming Up For Air (featuring Dave Nassie)
It was a present surprise to learn that Dave Nassie from the legendary No Use For A Name was amongst those featured on this album, and he did a killer job with his part. Lyrically, this song is amazing, maybe even my favorite on the record. It has a catchy melody, it will be stuck with me for a few days, haha.

Where Does The Time Go
This song to me sounds like a mix between pop punk and melodic hardcore, with elements of skatepunk mixed in also. Each song keeps impressing as the album goes on, which I'm not surprised because I had high hopes for this album and so far my high hopes and expectations are being met.

Whichever Path You Take (featuring Mike Herrera)
Fans of MxPx rejoice, Mike Herrera is on this record, how cool is that? Like I said earlier crazy amount of talent on this album and this track is no exception to that statement. Such a good song, Mike Herrera is the perfect person to be featured on this album, don't worry he did a great job, but did you really expect anything less?

Your Bones
"1000 years and none the wiser", to me that represents the world in general, humanity makes the same mistakes occasionally bringing us back to where we started. I'm not completely sure if that's what the song is about, that was only my opinion, but what I do know for sure is that this song is an absolute shredder.

Liar (featuring Eddie Haddad)
Opening with a bit of piano is surprisingly underused but used so well here, also love how the instruments come in slowly as the piano fades, great mastering from Chris Fogal. This song has a different flow from some of the other songs that this record provides, not my most favorite track but there is nothing negative that I can say about it either.

Sleep Alone
Back to pop punk/melodic hardcore, throughout this entire record one thing has remained the same and it is the quality of these songs, between brilliant song writing and great work on all instruments there isn't a single bad song on this record, held up to my expectations and then some. For me, this song is very quotable but I will wait for you to hear it and form your own opinion but for now, take my word for it.

The Things We Think We Know
Probably one of the fastest songs on the record, this track hits hard as soon as it starts, giving new life to the term "fast melodic punk" for sure, this band is really perfecting it with this track (and record for that matter). It is great to know that punk won't be dying anytime soon thanks to bands like Winning Streak, much respect to these dudes.

Avarice
Avarice is defined as "extreme greed" for those unaware, and it represented well by the lyrics of this song. It just fits so well in 2018 with all the crazy things we have going on with Trump being president of the country, definitely a lot of greed going around that's for sure. But no matter who you are, you can't avoid being affected by this unfortunate happening.

Warhawks
As soon as Trump was elected president, myself and many others said that this will stand as the true revival of politically charged lyrics in punk rock, and our statement turned out to be true because almost every punk album has one political/war themed track on it. Now, that isn't a bad thing in the slightest because it is very necessary for people to relieve their anger especially when dealing with politics.

The Black Behind The Stars (featuring Gunner McGrath)
I mentioned Much the Same many times throughout this review, with good reason their influence on Winning Streak is obvious and present throughout the entirety of this album which is great becuase I love Much The Same, and to close off this record we are treated to a Gunner McGrath feature. Both vocalists knock this one of out the park without a doubt.

Conclusion: Whether you know them as Winning Streak or remember them as Illegal Operation there is no denying that "Whichever Path You Take" is a serious candidate for the Top 10 of 2018. So much star power on this album with features from Dave Nassie, Mike Herrera, Eddie Haddad, and Gunner McGrath. So, after a 12 year hiatus Winning Streak came back and gave us the record that we needed, great job guys!

Final Score: ★★★★★

The Human Project - Clarion Call (Review)

Many words can be used to sum up the very unique sound of The Human Project, it is most commonly refered to as "technical skatepunk" or "melodic hardcore" and both descriptions are accurate and are on full display with this release from the punk rockers from Leeds. I am extremely thrilled that I had the chance to review this record before its release, an absolutely solid album from start to finish. As I expected there is very heavy political themes throughout Clarion Call, and that is fine by me! Honestly, this album has been on my daily rotation since I got it.

Desperate Times / Desperate Measures
"Desperate Times" serves as a really good intro track, it does a very good job setting the tone for the record you are about to hear. My favorite part about this track is the slow lead up to the point that the sound picks up and gets heavy, that is how an intro track should be, getting you stoked to hear the rest of the album. "Desperate Measures" starts and I had no other choice but to nod my head along with music, I can't say for sure about the meaning behind this song, however, I think it is safe to say that it is calling out the use of governmental power to take whatever course of action they believe to be appropriate against whoever they please. I love this song mainly because it hits hard with the sound that The Human Project has provided throughout their past releases.

That One Percent
This is the second single from the album and as of right now the only song that has a music video, politically charged lyrics along plus that lovely Melodic Hardcore sound = a great song. In the most classic case of people versus their government a common topic is always war, which is an all too common issue in a government whether it be the US or UK, (or any country) war is a controversial topic with good reason, of course. This song is representative of the fact that government expenses are helped along with the general public's money. "Why must we pay for war!"

The Rhetoric
The aforementioned theme of politicals appears once again, and I believe this another song that relates to subject of war, lyrics like "people killing people for causes they did not choose" provide further evidence to my claim. But, don't let all this distract you from how good this song is, probably one of my favorite songs that ever released.

Knocked For Six
5 songs in to this album and it has not failed to impress me, I expected nothing less than a great album from The Human Project. To me, this track defines tech skatepunk at its absolute finest. There is less of a political presence here as this song reminds me of someone right after a break up or some form of heartache, easily relatable to many people, all wrapped up in a skatepunk bow.

Carrion / What We Always Do
"Carrion" starts as a great "intermission" track leading into "What We Always Do" which was the first album single. While listening to this sound I was reminded of what made me a fan of The Human Project in the first place, the guitar riffs in this track are genius. Lyrically, the track is solid which doesn't surprise me at all because so far almost every song from this album has been very lyrics driven and have had deep meaning. Solid track.

Blame
If there were any one song that had to represent the genre of tech skatepunk, it would have to be this one. It has the melodic vocals, sweet guitar riff, and all that good stuff. This is the sound that The Human Project are known and loved for, it is full force here. I love it.

Pride Before A Fall
Another pretty deep song on this record, which is pretty cool, because in my opinion when songs / albums are personal it makes the music even better on a whole other level, that is one of the main reasons that I love bands like Keep Flying, Dead To Me, etc. On top of being personal this song is instrumentally amazing.

A Debt To Society
One of my favorite songs on this record, it details how living in a society controlled by "the elite" benefits no one, and they are absolutely right, things won't be able to flourish when all the power is to one side and the general public's best interest is not being taken into consideration, this topic is relevant to what is going on in the world as of now. Awesome track nonetheless!

Clarion Call
The grand finale, the title track of the record. The saying "save the best for last" would be perfect for right as this song is an awesome way to close out an already amazing record, this track is great without a doubt. It is a call to those is power and not doing doing the right thing "we don't want for what we deserve". Definitely an awesome closing song. This album was great.

Conclusion: The Human Project is one of the best bands out there right now and didn't fail to impress with their latest release "Clarion Call". I can't wait for everyone to hear this album, and I would like to thank the band for giving me the opportunity to review the record!

Final Score: ★★★★✩

Screaming Fastcore Interviews Freddie Torres (Donuts N' Glory)

Donuts N' Glory was a 3-piece short-lived skatepunk band from Costa Mesa, Southern California. They formed in 1994 and kept active until 1996. 

Two weeks ago, Screaming Fastcore interviewed Garry Cassidy (former drummer of the band) who gave us a lot of valious info about them. Well, the story does not end here... A few days ago, Garry contacted me with Freddie Torres (former singer / bassist) who was interested in answering the same interview in order to reveal us more unknown details and anecdotes.
I couldn't be more stoked for. So, here we go again!


How old were each one of you when Donuts N' Glory started?
I was about 19 years old. Garry’s a year younger and Dan and Brian were 2 years younger.

How did band's name come about?
Garry the drummer already had the name by the time I tried out for the band. He says it was his (mis)interpretation of something he heard in a song. I always thought it was a reference to police officers and their inspiration for being cops; instead of “No Guts, No Glory” it was “Donuts And Glory.” Cops become cops because they want donuts and glory. I’m not sure why that should be the name of band, but it was there when I got there, and I wasn’t about to change things up…

I feel a huge influence from "Propagandhi - How To Clean Everything" and "NOFX - Punk In Drublic" on your full-length album. Which other bands/albums were an inspiration for that record?
At the time of that record I was listening to a bunch of different bands, and certain aspects made it into the album in one way or another. The gravely and painfully raw singing in Crimpshrine and FIFTEEN inspired the vocals at times. Also, those bands were always talking about their hometown and their childhood in Berkeley, California. There was a certain terroir to their lyrics and the feel of their songs. Lyrically I tried to do the same, but as it applied to the scene in Orange County, California in the mid-1990s. Minor Threat influenced me in the same way, both lyrically and in their attitude and tone, but they talked about the scene in DC back in the 80s. OC in the 90s growing up was about the dudes, the surfers, the jocks, the meatheads, Peace Punks, Mexicans, materialism, overconsumption, hyper-consumerism, car culture, freeways, territorialism from city to city, jerks wanting to fight at parties, drinking beer, aging old school punks, bands trying to become mainstream, fake plastic people. But then there were the people that rejected all that, and I was one of them. Oh, I did like the beer…
We drank beer in cornfields, we broke into mansions under construction and drank beer and caroused and fucked around. We listened to James Brown and danced in garages and warehouses and we did it all night long. We drank whiskey and stayed up all night and talked about books, and made up a cappella songs about Kareem Abdul Jabbar. We smoked cigarettes and drank coffee and talked all night, ate mushrooms in the desert, smoked, read books from the Beats and the counter culture from the 60s. I read Henry Rollins poetry, Bukowski, Kerouac, Hesse, Heinlein, etc. I read Cometbus all the time and how that guy hitchhiked across Europe and busked in the 80s and hopped trains, etc., a mid-80s beatnik. I wanted to do the same, but doing it our way.
I was really into Primus, with its tripped out music, tradition-breaking sound. I was into AVAIL which I was trying to harness in the ending of A Lot of Not Much. Also, the beginning of A Lot of Not Much was supposed to rip the feel from the beginning of the TV show Quantum Leap. Lyrically that song was drawing from Eastern philosophy dealing with the duality in the universe. However, part of the album was to not take things too seriously. Also in that song we took the I-Spy approach to song writing where there’s not really verse-verse-chorus-verse-chorus-chorus; instead it was a one-way ticket with no real repetition structurally. It was intro-verse-bridge-chorus-another bridge-outro. I liked that it didn’t have any discernable structure.
I used to have a year pass to Disneyland and I’d go there, drink a coffee, ride Space Mountain, ride the people mover, and do my homework for college. The beginning of WPRTE was supposed to sound like the People Mover, or Journey Thru Inner Space, a slow paced ride at Disneyland that had a 60s style department store narrator telling some corny storyline about shrinking down to the molecular level. I was into Queensryche’s Operation Mindcrime, which was a conceptual album which had a storyline, or like Sgt. Pepper’s. Both had storylines to a degree, certain themes threaded through, so in that way the Fabulous Endeavor was leading the listener into a story, with discernable themes, but not linear. The WPRTE intro, The Fabulous Endeavor, was to trying to take the listener on a journey into absurdity, into the abstract, like the Dadaists and surrealist artists I was learning about in college. What the fuck is a pregnasaur? The lyric “I feel like I’m in labor, I can feel the head of a revolution pushing out of my urethra” was a tip of the hat to the revolutionaries, like Che, like Bolivar, like the Viet Cong, Ian MacKaye, or like Les Claypool who said “to defy the laws of tradition is a crusade only of the brave.” I was trying to be brave like those people, but doing so in my own way.
Musically we were ripping off from all over the place. Mickeymousealbundy used a Big Muff and was trying to sound heavy, but absurd, like Weezer. I think Primus was an influence, with the tinty sounding Porkpie snare drum, fusion-rock drum fills, ornate work on the high-hat: I think that was Primus influenced. I liked the disturbed-kid-on-the playground bratty feel of FYP which I think came out with lyrics like “sorry mom and dad” in Jon.
The break in Sirens with the galloping palm muted metal guitar riff, and the break beforehand was definitely Slayer and Anthrax influenced; like the break and punches in The Crooked Crossfrom Slayer’s South Of Heaven, and the guitar feel in Anthrax’s Among The Living. Also the break in Sirens leading up to said metal riff is a rip from the can-can song from a Bugs Bunny cartoon. The lyric “flex your head” is a rip from Minor Threat.
Before Baywatch clearly is inspired by Lionel Ritchie’s All Night Long but also the lyric “and just when you thought you’ve seen it all, out comes an alien a-nine-foot-tall” is lifted from the end song from Revenge of the Nerds. Orange County pop culture also makes it into the album with references to the Orange Mall, a dated shopping mall in Orange, California, which easily could have doubled for the mall in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Also, the old California Angel Bobby Grich made it in, doing a “guest appearance” at Sears. Jelly Sandals, Betamax, checkered Vans (which has made about 7 comebacks since that song was written back in 1995). I asked Brian, the guitarist, to think of an 80s guy’s name, and without skipping a beat he said “Toby.”
Musically at the time I was into Operation Ivy and Rancid, so I ripped the bass player’s approach a bit, although I couldn’t play as fast, or as well, but really, too many notes on the bass can become overbearing. My all time favorite is Minor Threat, so at least the spirit of that band can be heard in the attitude, music, and lyrics. And of course NOFX’s Longest Line influenced the music with the stops, starts, syncopation, etc.
So, overall, the album was pastiche, collage art, part tribute to pop culture, but definitely OC, and definitely 90s, and definitely Donuts n’ Glory. The following is pulled from the heart of the Big Lebowski (which I’m proud to say I saw in the movie theater right when it came out), but it applies to our band a bit: Sometimes there's a man band... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? But sometimes, there's a man band. And I'm talkin' about the Dude Donut n’ Glory here. Sometimes, there's a man band, well, he's they’re the man band for his their time and place. He They fit right in there. And that's the Dude Donuts n’ Glory, in Los Angeles Orange County.”

Do you have more unreleased songs apart from "The Bell Song", "The Gord" and "That Way"?
First, while The Bell Song is the correct name, I’m not sure what The Gord is. That Way must be the song that starts “The situation that we’ve made, for ourselves at these shows” but I really can’t remember the name. I have a cassette tape of us practicing where Dan plays fancy arpeggios doing a cover of Minor Threat. On tour we did a mash-up song of The Doors Touch Me and Crimpshrine’s Butterflies.
We played Little Richard’s Tutti Frutti live a couple of times, as well as Metallica’s Motorbreath. We played a song called Land Of The Lost Love which was about that 70s TV show with the clay dinosaurs, and how Holly, the blonde girl fell in love with Chaka, the missing link sasquatch-type primate: a story of forbidden love. There was also a recording session we did that had a song about the Lab Mall in Costa Mesa and how it was destroying subculture by monetizing it. My first band was with my brother and a neighborhood guy named Eric Sullivan; we played a song called I Hate No Fear Stickers whose title pretty much tells you what it was about. It was part Primus, part Bad Religion. Brian Billy from the 7” was about how we played a party in San Diego, the vibe was cool, and then some meatheads tried to steal the keg and the whole band and our friends from Tustin (Chris Austin and others) stopped them and then there was a riot/brawl but we retained the keg. I think that was the only band fight.


Is it true that you played with Blink-182 (when they were called Blink)? Please tell us more about that story.
We played with them at least 3 times. Once was at the Coach House in Capistrano Valley. It was weird because everyone was sitting down at tables because it was some sort of dinner theater venue. We also played with them at the Showcase Theater in Corona. I remember the bass player replaced his strings every show and he gave me his strings. That was nice of him. At that show the guitar guy had the flu or something so the manager, Brian Valdez, gave him a shot of vitamin C or B12 or something.
I thought that was kind of funny and reminded me of the rumor that the running back at my high school got a horse tranquilizer shot in his leg because he was in pain. It was a “cut me Mick” situation, which I found a little peculiar. The last time we played with them was in Lake Havasu at some rec center place. Garry drew a picture for our friends ‘zine that was rude, and the guy from Blink was not pleased. Blink is indirectly referenced in WPRTE. Let’s just say I was more into Black Flag, Blatz, Cannibal Corpse, stuff like that, and less KROQ Wiener Roast, MTV, etc.


Which one was your favorite show you ever played, and why?
I really liked playing in an old mining cave in the desert outskirts of Las Vegas with a band called Bobba Fett Youth. I don’t remember what that band sounded like, but what a cool name. We played at night and there was an old VW bus with a fire burning inside it, in the fucking cave! It was like Mad Max, or that scene in the Terminator in the future where some scrubby little kid seems to be watching a TV set, but then the camera angle turns and you see that it’s not a TV show the kid’s watching, but a little fire the kid’s huddling around. Man, that was some funny post- apocalyptic shit. We played and the crowd starting moshing in a circle and dust got kicked up everywhere, and covered all of our shit and my Big Muff pedal. The next morning, we were out of it and then our burn out surfer friends Scotty and Tanner started looking for half-drunk beers so they could keep the party going. They were climbing over the red rocks looking for cans and I remember Tanner saying something in his Spiccoli voice like “We’re on an Easter egg hunt, but we’re looking for beers instead of eggs.” Next, we brought a big BBQ on wheels, and we decided to roll it off a cliff and watch it get wrecked and disintegrate as it tumbled down the rocks. Spectacular!
I also liked playing with the Queers, and later The Criminals – I liked them, so that was cool. I was listening to that clear live Queers album all the time. Monster Zero!
Another great show was in Rock Springs, Wyoming. We were supposed to play at some Polish Social Club/Rec Center, but we couldn’t because they had double-booked a bachelor party (I remember some burly guy was wheeling in a keg). We went to a small independent record store and met some kids in the parking lot. They said we should play on a flatbed trailer “and shits.” Instead they brought us to a park where there were some medieval role-playing knights having a sword battle with foam covered sticks. We went inside the gazebo in the middle, but there was not electricity. Somehow the kids who took us there managed to get about 30 of the town kids to watch us play. We had no power so we played our electric instruments without amps, and we played our entire set but with all the raw energy we could. In fact, we played with even more energy to make up for the fact that we had no amplification. The kids went wild and we opened up the back of our U-Haul and sold pretty much every kid a CD. That was cool.
One time we played a suburban house it Pennsicola, Florida. The whole neighborhood came to watch us play in a living room, and there were really young kids there. They fed us hot dogs and it was something different. We played a bayou blues bar in a shack outside New Orleans; we had to piss in sink!
The last show we played was in Denver, Colorado, and upon leaving the parking lot some guy yelled at me and said, “You remind of Tom Araya from Slayer!” That was one of the best compliments I ever got in my book.
The truth is that I loved every show we ever played, no matter the venue and no matter the crowd size. We played for about 4 people in Santa Cruz in some house and I loved it. We played the college radio station KUCI a bunch of times and that was awesome. We turned on our smoke machine and set off the fire alarms and shut down the show. That was funny because why the fuck would you turn on a smoke machine on a radio show? It was all about having fun and blowing people’s minds. We would play house parties and no one knew who we were, and we’d just shock them with loud, energy rock music. We played Showcase Theater a bunch of times and that was always a good time with the kids who were into the music. Even when we’d play for one person at our practice space I’d love it. It would only take one person to make it a full-blown, full-blast show. It was always about making people feel like, “What the fuck just happened?”

Why did the band break up? Any plans for a Donuts N' Glory reunion show?
We broke up suddenly because it was time to stop. We were writing political songs, satire, songs about the OC scene, etc, but then I ended my job of 5 years, graduated from college, and broke up a relationship all within a month. I became really introspective due to the changes, so writing songs about society didn’t make much sense, it didn’t feel right. We took a break after the tour, but then time went on. I wanted to travel, so I saved up money and traveled around the world for years. All of that Kerouac and Cometbus, sociology classes, and Eastern philosophy made me want to see the world for myself, so that’s what I did. I traveled around the world, taught English in Cusco, Peru, and lived in Latin America for a year. I didn’t look back, and I went further, like the sign said on the front of the Merry Prankster’s school bus.
There was talk of a reunion show a couple of years back. I’d do it, but I live in New York City, I’m an administrator at a middle school, and I have a wife two great little sons, thus, playing a show with Donuts n’ Glory would be challenging.

Any chance for a "When Pregnasaurs Ruled The Earth..." reissue? Remixed and remastered on vinyl, maybe?
I don’t know. Garry would know. I think we may own the rights, but I’m not sure exactly.

What do you think of the punk rock scene nowadays?
The punk rock scene is in my head. I listen to Minor Threat in my car. I listen to Slayer, Donuts n’ Glory, Anthrax, Bad Religion’s Suffer. Is me listening to that stuff on the way home from work considered the “punk rock scene”? If it is, I love it!
Really though, punk music is about not being held down, it’s about doing whatever you want and not caring what others think, being free to do and create things on your own, so, if there’s a scene around that, where people are getting together around that ethos, then I think that’s great. Whether it’s small or huge I doesn’t really matter, what matters is what’s in your heart and if you like the feeling and the music.

Would you like to add something for the people who still follow Donuts N' Glory more than 20 years after its disbanding?
Do what you want, say what you can, go to hell with Superman and die like a champion…
Also, resist Trump, hit the streets, talk to people, discuss, vote, network, and get him out before he wrecks this whole experiment.

Donuts N' Glory (Interview + Full Discography and Bonus)

Donuts N' Glory was a 3-piece short-lived skatepunk band from Costa Mesa, Southern California. They formed in 1994 and kept active until 1996.
"When Pregnasaurs Ruled The Earth..." is their only full-length release and one of the albums I've most ever listened to. Why? Because it catches all the energy from that era plus an unique touch. I simply love those power-chords combined with one-string riffs, great bass lines, aggressive drumming and that "snotty" vocals.


Screaming Fastcore in exclusive, interviews Garry Cassidy (former band drummer) in order to reveal some unknown details about them. So, here we go!


How old were each one of you when Donuts N' Glory started?
Freddie (bass/vocals) was 21, Brian (guitar) was 18 or 19 and I was 19.

I've seen that sometimes you appear as a 4-piece band. Was Dan a permanent band member?
Dan was a second guitar in the beginning. We asked him to step away for a while and we really tightened up without him. After we made WPRTE we had him come back, but on keyboards.


How did band's name come about?
When DnG formed I was still skating a lot. Cell phones didn't exist and I didn't have a pager yet. The dudes I skated with called our crew OC Donut Crew. I got home late one night and had a voice mail chanting "DONUTS AND GLORY! DONUTS AND GLORY! DONUTS AND GLORY!" We were looking for a name and I liked the sound of it. Guns N' Wankers, Guns N' Roses... Donuts N' Glory! Once I said it to Brian and Freddie it was a done deal.

I feel a huge influence from "Propagandhi - How To Clean Everything" and "NOFX - Punk In Drublic" on your full-length album. Which other bands/albums were an inspiration for that record?
We found Freddie by posting a flyer in a legendary record store in Huntington Beach, California called Vinyl Solution. The internet was in its infancy... The flyer said we were forming a band and looking for a bass player and singer w/ Guttermouth, NOFX and a few others. Freddie was the first guy to call. He ruled from the first time we met. How To Clean Everything had not been released yet. Freddie was a UCI student, old enough to buy us beer and could keep up with Brian's guitar playing, on bass. Freddie didn't want to sing so we tried out a couple singers and hated them all. We really wanted Freddie to sing and he had good lyrics! Things happened so fast I never fully understood the depth of his writing until WPRTE was released and I got all stoned and read along. My mind was blown.

Do you have more unreleased songs apart from "The Bell Song", "The Gord" and "That Way"?
No. Well, there are some songs we wrote early on that didn't make it on the full length and a couple left overs from Freddies first band as well as some stuff we wrote together and only demoed before we really found our sound. Chrono-Unlogical, Before Baywatch and Song are all songs we wrote and started to really put it together, but Mysterious Thunder, Sirens, A Lot of Not Much and Perspective are the songs that we loved and knew we were into something.

Is it true that you played with Blink-182 (when they were called Blink)? Please tell us more about that story.
More than once. Our friend Pat that put out the 7", his sister was dating one of them or something. I loved Chesire Cat. Our first show with them was at an old pay to play venue with chairs and tables so it was kind of lame. They could jumped really high. We played with them a few more times. Scott the original drummer would ask me how to play so fast with a single bass drum pedal. Tom and Mark didn't talk to us much and we were all kind of shy. I eventually pissed them of by drawing a cover for a 'zine that they didn't like, it wasn't very cool of me considering they kept inviting us to play with them. 

Which one was your favorite show you ever played, and why?
We played in a cave in Las Vegas. It was rad. I guess the cave was in some movies. Bobba Fett Youth was the band that invited us out there. They set up the cave with PA system running off of generators and bands played all night. Everyone got really drunk. 

Why did the band breaks up? Any plans for a Donuts N' Glory reunion show?
The band never really broke up. You can still listen to our music 22 years later so the "band" still exists... We just never played again. I think it was a combination of some people not being satisfied with the way things went with the label, a changing music scene, Freddie is a cultured individual that knew he needed to travel the world, Brian dove head first into computer generator music... I honestly kind felt lost. I lived for DnG and playing drums. I created a band that just when it started to gain positive momentum, POOF, gone. As responsible for the bands creation, I can also take as much responsibility for its demise. 

Do you have or did you have more bands/side projects?
During DnG i played with Vitamin L. After DnG I played with the Killingtons when the original drummer left. Brian had a band called Black Bananas and RTX with former members of Royal Trux. I think that band has done some reunion shows. Freddie is involved in an after school music program in Brooklyn, NY. He still rules at life.

Any chance for a "When Pregnasaurs Ruled The Earth..." reissue? Remixed and remastered on vinyl, maybe?
It's not likely to happen. The label wants us to buy the rights to the album and he will give us the analog master tapes but he will not let us confirm the tapes are in good condition. There is some lost VHS footage of us recording WPRTE and I would love to release a dvd but the original tapes owner has passed away.  

What do you think of the punk rock scene nowadays?
The only modern punk band I have seen play is PEARS. I fucking love that band. All my old favorite bands are terrible live. Propagandhi and Bad Religion are the only bands that still kick ass live. I miss Tony Sly, he would still be giving 100% every show. Fuck Fat Mike!

Would you like to add something for the people who still follow Donuts N' Glory more than 20 years after its disbanding?
Thank you and I wish I could give you more!
