25 Ta Life: its a great release a great way to vent our frustatration ,, its either

Musicscan: does it make a difference to your appereance on stage if there are only a
few people showing up to see you?
25 Ta Life: hey wether its 5 or 10 people , 500 to 1000, we always try and give it
our best ,, we played a few practices on stage before ya know who hasnt
,,damn those fuckin promotors do it yourself ,, ha ha
Musicscan: i sometimes think there is again some kind of u-turn into old school
hardcore these days. i mean those modern
bands like terror, give up the ghost or champion are very popular at the
moment. is it easier for more traditional
hardcore bands to find their listeners?
25 Ta Life: hey to each there own ,, remember its all about
there five letters unity
Musicscan: right for life as well as 25 ta life are known for their good live shows?
is this something that challenges you?

Musicscan: is there something you want the people to leave your shows with?
25 Ta Life: yes a split lip or a broken eye ha ha im kidding ,hopefully they will leave the show ,and be able to handle a few
more days of
life ya know, and hopefully want to get involved and do something to
the scene alive, start a band help book a show anything to help keep
Musicscan: what was the weirdest thing a fan has ever done during a live gig you
25 Ta Life: the crazy illest shit yo ,, once we had these 2 girls , flashing us in
poland they kept showing us there tits ,kissing each other fondling each
other and they told our tour manager they would sleep with him for a 25
shirt ha ha dirty whores who doesnt lovem ,,that was funny,,
then we just toured cali, nov 2003. and we had these 2 girls it was there
birthdays and they kept telling us they love anal sex ,, our boys in
device had a huge tour bus which i called it the bus on sin ,, which had
a huge bed in the back of the bus it was crazy ,ill shit went on ,, we
played this bar and it was all old rocker ladies from the 80s ,, on sunset
blvd in the strip they thought we were motley crue of winger and they
thrashing why we played flashing us ,,the crazy ness then once we
this show in europe and we did crucified and we had like 20 nazis saluting
us thats always fun , then theres times when we do the iron cross
classic .crucified and girls and emo kids bring me flowers so i mean
theres been moments , those walmarkt kodak moments, ya know
Musicscan: it looks like both bands are very experienced with tough situations.
like "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
am i right? what's your attitude towards this whole hardcore-thing?
25 Ta Life: Its like biohazard said on the new records dawgs its kill or be killed. hatebreed wrote it perserverence. 50
cent said yo if you fuck with me Im a kill you. Dmx said a yo what comes out your mouth will get you shot down, and I
saying we re a hardcore band and its fucking hard. Yo seriously fellas we have a new cd out. best of friends/enemies
