How long have you been part of The Negatives?

Yikes! math, great! :S lets see now, 1,5 years i think. i seem to remember it was summer when i joined so yeah a year and a half seems about right.

What made you pick up the bass?

Well the negatives needed a bassplayer and i needed to get on a stage... like NOW! :P ill play almost anything if i have to but i am realy a guitar player. ive even fronted a few bands as a lead singer.

How long have you been playing?

I started playing guitar when i was 11 or 12 so... (math again :P)... hey! wait! is this a way for you to figure out how old i am? :P or have i already told you? ok fine! ive been playing for 12 years or so.

Who writes the lyrics and who writes the music?

Svegis wrote "At the End of the Rope" (most of it anyway) and then we arranged it together. Jyrki might have had something to say about the lyrics too but i dont remember anymore. Im not sure who wrote all the older trax but i know the old guitar player wrote some of them with svegis.

What are your influences?

Dropkick Murphys, UK Subs, Business, Street Dogs, punkrock with attitude and the spirit of -77

Who is the youngest and who is the oldest in the band?

I (Nasty) am the "kid" and im not sure whos older, svegis or jyrki.

Do you guys get along?

Yeah :P it wouldnt work otherwise.

How do you feel when you are playing onstage?

its like a mix between sex and a car crash! lots of anticipation and expectations before the show, addrenaline and sweat during and after the "deed is done" its all a blur :P

What is the craziest thing you have seen while touring? not at liberty to discuss that :P what happens on the road, STAYS on the road. yupp, thats right! im hiding behind a technicality =D

Are you guys going to continue touring when Svegis gets better?

yeah, thats the plan!

What are the dates and locations?

nothing is set so far so i cant say much right now.
