The Pervz debut EP crash-landed into the tMx office just the other day like a small meteor through a large greenhouse roof. To say we’re still clearing up some 3 weeks later is an understatement up there with: Tony Blair is a shifty cunt.

Like a prime time politician roasting over an open fire in public, The Pervz make one fuck of a noise: a totally healthy mix of old skool appropriation & new skool ambition.

The Pervz could well be the loudest bunch of motherfuckers we’ve heard since The RC5! I still can’t get my ears to stop ringing (buy them a ‘pay as you go mobile’ – Ed).

The Pervz 4-track EP has been released in a ltd run of 1000 copies on Las Vegas’ Wood Shampoo Records & if you want one I’d write 1st class to:

Wood Shampoo Records, PO Box 27801, Las Vegas, Nevada 89126-1801

Knowing a loud thing when I hear one, I immediately set about badgering The Pervz into talking to tMx. This is what they had to say:

trakMARX - When, how & why did life begin for The Pervz?

Pervz - Life began early 2003. The Dbros (Dylan & Dallas) answered an ad in a local internet site. The reason for coming to be is to kick out the jams & shake things up in rock n' roll.

trakMARX - Had the 3 of you had much previous punk rock n roll experience?

Pervz - I (Joe) had been in a bunch of rock bands & the Dbros were in a punk thing before in Texas.

trakMARX - Is the new EP your vinyl debut?

Pervz - Yep.

trakMARX - The back cover of the EP features 3 x Pervz urinating in the classic Clash "White Riot" sleeve stance. Are you big Clash fans?

Pervz - Kinda, but we thought we'd just show off our snazzy suit coats.

trakMARX - Did you ever see Billy Childish's Thee Stash parody 7" aping the same pose?

Pervz - Nope.

trakMARX - Your sound combines Punk fury, Stooges power & an old skool punk rock n roll reverence. Who are The Pervz heroes/heroines?

Pervz - The Ramones, The Stooges & more current - Nirvana (Kurt Cobain).

trakMARX - Are you gonna do an LP with Wood Shampoo?

Pervz - We've talked a little bit about it but we need to have a sit down & figure a few things.

trakMARX - Who would The Pervz stand shoulder to shoulder with from the USA's current crop of guitar slingers?

Pervz - Any of them, anywhere, anytime!!

trakMARX - Any plans to play out in the UK?

Pervz - We'd love to play the UK. Can you get us a gig? (erm, not exactly, but we know a man who can – Ed)

trakMARX - What's the next big thing for The Pervz?

Pervz - Management, big time record deal, maybe a house or two in Portofino. We're just going to continue playing out as much as possible, spreading the word. Let the word be heard, the word is The Pervz!
