Cincinnati, Ohio punk outfit, Boys, respond to interviews just like they play their music: short, sweet, and pointed. Their brand of bratty pop-punk is as infectious as it is angsty. Now, there is no denying that they are not for everyone. But for what they do, Boys does damn well. Give them a chance and get septic.

What’s your hometown (or what are your hometowns)?
How did the band come together? How long has it been?
I had some songs that I’d been working on. We were all friends. It’s been, uh, maybe eight months?
Why should people listen to your band?
We are better than some bands, but not better than most, so some people might like that.
How have you grown since you started?
At least a half an inch.
What sets you apart from other bands?
We have fewer songs than other bands. Also different songs.
What’s the best part about being in your band?
More times than not, influences tend to bleed through. What bands are currently inspiring the music that you’re making?
John really loves the Sex Pistols.
What would you say the band has already accomplished and what do you have your eyes set on next?
We’ve accomplished very little. We’ve played one show. It went alright. We have our eyes set on playing other shows, I guess.
