Recently we had the chance to ask our friend Jay from bloody Australia a few really meaningless questions. Jay's the frontman of the longstanding melodic punk rock outfit Frenzal Rhomb who he admits is still together by his sheer forcing of the other members Lindsay, Gordy and Dal through a combination of coercion and blackmail. These guys have been around the block a time or two since forming in Sydney, Australia back in '92 and they are still putting out vital, fast and furious tunes. The questions may be dumb but the answers will give you a glimpse behind the veil so open up grandma, here comes the choo choo train.
