""Treason" Single Reviewed by SugarBuzz Magazine"

Fucking A! Piss N’ Blood has had enough. Ripping to shred bullshit at large, their ace back to back smack in the mouth Treason single is a rumble waiting to happen.

Making me just wanna spit and scratch, “Treason” is an expose of corruption, political hodgepodge and selling out of the American dream. Early Brit swagger ala Rotten and Orange Curtain skate live in this classic punk and punch. Ron Anger spews it like it is, don’t like it, fuck you. A wake up call for today’s youth.

Oh fuck yes, “24 Hour Machine” has a battered beat and Crash attitude. Meat puppets beware, Piss N’ Blood gonna set you free. Get off the couch and get angry. The guitar bit between banter is so fucking addictive, I have to fire up the Marshall and jack it now. Makes me wanna dust off the old Doc’s and hit Oki Dogs.

Orange County isn’t wasted on these guys as they blaze new trails while remaining loyal to O.C. sound of dreams gone by, all the while sounding like they just nicked their wardrobe at Let it Rock (SEX) . Piss off!

"Interview - Piss N’ Blood for Skratch Magazine"

Piss N’ Blood is an Orange County punk band full of piss and vinegar. Ron Anger (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Cameron Mosavian (lead guitar) play real rock with the attitude to match. With the addition of D.J. Lara (Bass) and drummer, P.J. (Parker Johnston) Piss N’ Blood are poised to combat what they consider the new American values. Check out what the core team, Ron Anger and Cameron Mosavian, had to say to Skratch Magazine.

Skratch: Describe your sound:

Anger: The sound of one hand clapping. It’s really a very aggressive Rock ‘n’ Roll sound. We like to keep it in attack mode at all times without relying on hyper drum tempos and screaming vocals. We kind of let the anger in the lyrics speak for them selves. It’s controlled energy. Not rage. That’s why I always laugh at the screamo bands. I always figure they must not be saying anything important because they don’t make any effort for you to understand what the fuck they’re saying. We do like a lot of feedback and noise. Natural cranked up tube amp sound.
Cam: Loud, raunchy, agitated guitar… Smart, insightful, sneering lyrics… Rock n’ Roll the way it deserves to be played.

Skratch: How did you become interested in music?

Anger: When I was a little kid my mom & dad didn’t have enough money to buy a television, so my mom always had the radio on in the house. My mom says that when I was only two years old I could recognize The Beatles when their songs came on. I would jump up and down and yell “Beatles, Beatles, Beatles”! I wrote my first song lyrics when I was ten. I remember that was my first conscious thought that I wanted to play in a band.
Cam: I was always a sucker for a good hook. I had a recurring dream as a kid that featured Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder as the soundtrack to it. Music had a tremendous impact on me even before I was self-aware.

Skratch: What is your song writing process like?

Anger: I write the lyrics and Cam and I both write the music. Cam is a music machine. He comes up with guitar riffs constantly and he always remembers them without putting anything down on tape. He’ll come up with a riff, play it for me once and then not play it again for six months and still be able to remember it when I ask him later.
Cam: Ron already had 4 or 5 songs ready to go that he wrote himself when I met him. After that it’s usually been I’ll write the music, Ron pens the lyrics, and we’ll work the final arrangements together. There’s no official blueprint of how we write songs… It’s just the way it’s worked for us so far.
Anger: Except for Treason. We literally wrote the music together and arranged it together in one rehearsal. We started jamming on an idea and just banged that one out. We were really pleased with it when we were finished. I had the lyrics ready the next day and we went in and recorded it right away.

Skratch: What artists or musicians inspire you?

Anger: Joe Strummer is inspiring. I really like Ian Hunter too. When Ian Hunter sings he’s always able to make you feel what he’s feeling emotionally within the song. That’s a great quality. Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols and Guy Days from 999. Guy Days is one of the coolest and most underrated Rock ‘n’ Roll guitar players ever. And of course the New York Dolls, and Bob Marley.
Cam: Fugazi number one. Iggy Pop, the Sex Pistols, The Clash, Ramones, the Dead Boys. I always had a guilty pleasure for Neil Diamond.

Skratch: Where do you take musical inspiration from? Your environment? People? Explain.

Anger: I don’t think I’m inspired as much as I am motivated. I’m motivated to destroy apathy and stupidity. Those seem to be the new American values and I don’t like it. The apathetic and stupid are the ones that let the greedy take things over. This country has gone down the toilet and I don’t think there is any way we can save it, because the majority of people are just too stupid. The majority of people in this country will believe anything they are force fed by the media and the media is owned by the ultra wealthy and the ultra wealthy tend to be religious ultra conservatives. It’s just pathetic.
Cam: Ron’s pretty good at summing things up in a nutshell.

Skratch: What is your musical background?

Anger: I was first chair violin in 2nd grade, but I got bored with it real quick. I learned to play drums when I was 12, and played drums for three years. By the time I was a teenager I realized what I really wanted to do was front a band. It suits my enormous ego. I began talking about starting a band when I was 15 and actually started my first band when I was 17. By the time I was 19 I had released an album and was being distributed by MCA Records. I used to be the vocalist for an Orange County punk band called Lost Cause. We released an album called Forgotten Corners when I was in the band. I was dabbling at guitar around the time I turned 21, but I didn’t get serious about it until I was 26. Now, I consider myself to be a pretty damn fine rhythm guitar player.
Cam: My brother got a guitar for his birthday when I was about 14. That summer I had no friends, no sense of self, no direction. So I stayed home all day and played his guitar for 5 hours, every day. At first the guitar pissed me the fuck off because I was so bad at it, but I took it as a challenge to conquer this instrument and make it do what I wanted it to. Later in life I eventually came to realize that I can play the shit out of a drum set as well. I’m still working on the Piano, my next item to conquer.

Skratch: Tell us about how you got started as a band.

Anger: I had placed an ad for myself trying to get into a band as a rhythm guitar player. I didn’t want to write lyrics. I didn’t want to write music. I didn’t want to make decisions. I just wanted to show up and play and maybe do some backing vocals. I didn’t like what I was finding and eventually got frustrated and decided to go back to the drawing board. So, I placed an ad in the Recycler and posted one on craigslist looking for musicians to start a new band. First I found a bass player and then we started auditioning lead guitar players. We auditioned a few guys before we met Cam. When we met Cam we went through the motions and jammed a bit on some of my older songs and before we finished I asked him if he had any songs of his own. He played us a whole bunch of new songs he had been working on. We were sold right away. Plus he seemed like a cool guy. He was confident, but he was real low key. The original bass player was gone a couple of weeks later and me & Cam are still playing. We’ve been a team ever since. We have our own rehearsal studio that Cam and I built together. When I first asked him if he wanted to help me build it he said “fuck yeah”.
Cam: It was a barren wasteland out there looking for like-minded musicians to start a band with. Trying to find the right mix of influence, direction, personality, skill… It was getting pretty grim and then one day I came across Ron’s ad and was like, Fuck Yeah. It’s on now.

Skratch: What is the most rewarding part of playing in a band?

Anger: Getting paid? I like when you’ve been working on a song for a long time and it finally all comes together, especially when the guitars really mesh. Because when they really mesh tight you can hear all these weird notes swirling around.
Cam: I’d say playing live. There is nothing in life closer to the feeling of total freedom when I’m on stage. Totally liberating.

Skratch: What challenges have you faced as musicians?

Anger: Just keeping a band together is a monumental challenge. All the different personalities you have to deal with on a daily basis. And that’s not including clubs & booking agents. It’s funny how all these clubs want bands to play, but they don’t want to pay the bands. It’s like we’re all here to do it for free and make club owners happy. All bands understand that they need to draw people, but the club owners need to understand that it costs the band money just to show up. It’s been my experience that clubs and booking agents have gotten less and less professional over the years. It’s because every Tom, Dick & Dick with a cell phone, a myspace page and a crappy dive bar thinks he’s a fucking booking agent. And then there are always the drug abuse and alcohol issues within a band. Been there, done that.
Cam: Being in a band is like being married to 4 other people, you gotta pick and choose your battles.

Skratch: What would you say is your best song to date? Why?

Anger: My favorite is Beautiful Losers. It represents exactly how I feel. It also shows how I use Piss N’ Blood not only as a way to express myself, but as a weapon, MY weapon.
Cam: I like Opium Lovers just for the complexity of the arrangement. It also has a very basic Rock ‘n’ Roll riff to it that just starts simple, but eventually takes you to places you didn’t anticipate. Keeping the music fresh and new in some way at least keeps the whole ship going, for us and the listener.

Skratch: Do you remember the first album you ever bought? What was it?

Anger: The first 7” single I ever bought was Magic Bus by The Who. The first album I ever bought was a K-tel compilation of 50’s & early 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll. It had Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, The Surfaris, and a bunch of other bands. I’ve had a life long obsession with Chuck Berry. It’s probably because of that K-tel record.
Cam: Thrash Zone by D.R.I. I picked up Repeater by Fugazi the same visit.

Skratch: Where do you see your band in five years?

Anger: Hugely famous and not becoming totally irrelevant like U2.
Cam: Enjoying the fruits of being the 7th largest economy in the world.

Skratch: Would you say your goals as a band are long term, or short term? What do you ultimately hope to achieve? Explain.

Anger: We have a bunch of short term goals that eventually lead to one big long term goal. No one in this band wants to work a 9 to 5 job for the rest of their lives and then die. Unfulfilled & bitter. We want to play music. We want music to be our career. Piss N’ Blood is our business. We run it like a business and we want it to be profitable. Any serious musician who tells you that he doesn’t care about making money playing music is a LIAR. We don’t do it just for the money, because there is no money. But if it’s there I’ll take every cent I can get, and happily.
Cam: Long term is to be the most influential band music has ever been forced to recognize. And that’s what we’re trying to do… force people to recognize. Give them no choice but to accept that we will destroy their precious worlds. We’re basically trying to achieve world domination.

Skratch: How has your band evolved since when you first formed?

Anger: Some past band members learned the hard way that this band is not a democracy. Band democracies are great in theory, but this is not The Monkees. There always has to be a leader or someone steering the boat. That’s the only way to make sure things get done. I ask opinions, but in the long run the decision is mine and Cam’s. We have the same ideas about what we expect, what we want and how to get it.
Cam: We’ve always been like-minded in that regard.

Skratch: How often do you practice? What is your rehearsal time like?

Anger: We usually rehearse twice a week. We usually run through the set and get the hell out. If we’re working a new song into the set we put it first and play it at least 2 or 3 times before moving on to the rest of the set. We’ll do that each rehearsal until we get the song down and then we discuss where to put it in the set order. Plus we have two sets, the Long Set & the Short Set. Long Set for headlining, Short Set otherwise.

Skratch: What would you say is your band’s motto? Explain.

Anger: Fuck You. That’s my personal motto. We totally believe in personal freedom & equal rights, but most people are too stupid to handle it. So, as far as I’m concerned they can fuck off. The whole gay rights issue is a real sore spot with me. Why does anybody give a fuck if gay people want to get married? It doesn’t really affect these anti gay marriage people in any way, but they want to believe it does because of their fucked up religious beliefs. I have news for you people, there is NO God. Get over it. It’s a fucking superstition created by cave men because they had no other way to explain life and the world around them. Once again, perfect example of people believing anything they’re force fed.
Cam: Rock ‘n’ Roll is and always will be rebellious music. Telling people to “fuck off” wasn’t always at the forefront, more like an underlying current. We’re trying to put that motto right back up your ass.

Skratch: What shows/album releases/plans do you currently have set up? Tell us about them.

Anger: Well, right now we still have 2 shows left in our year long residency at The Anarchy Library in Downey, CA. That’s where we played our first show. Jacklyn Blatz who books the shows there really likes us and she booked us for the last Saturday of each month for all of 2009. We’re still trying to push our Treason single and get as much exposure from it as we can before we release our next single. The next release will be Beautiful Losers. We already have the art work and a title for our first album, but we don’t have any plans to start recording for that yet. WE NEED A RECORD DEAL. This band is going to get signed. It’s just a matter of by who and when?
Cam: Whoever it is will be regarded as pure genius of a scout when it’s all said and done.

Skratch: Where have you performed? Tell us about the experience.
Anger: It’s just dive bar city. Cam & I both have played the Olympic Auditorium in L.A., but nothing compares to this. We played The Anarchy Library with Channel 3 not too long ago and The Relax Bar in Hollywood with the White Trash Debutantes. We’ve done Chain Reaction. We’ve played The Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, Doll Hut, Characters in Pomona, Liam’s Pub with The Duane Peters Gunfight. We did Project Infest in L.A. with the Stains. You know… the usual suspects. Most places have a shitty sound guy. Some venues have no sound guy at all. They all have sticky floors, except The Palmer Room in L.A. The Palmer Room is a really nice place with cool wood floors and a real stage. The wood stage there is lacquered. I slid on my knees right to the front of the stage. Too bad there was no one there to see it. We had about 10 people in the audience not counting the people working the club.
Cam: And we’re still waiting on that DVD Palmer Room!

Skratch: What sets your stage show a part from all the other bands making the rounds at venues?

Anger: My razor tongue – haha. We’re just fucking beautiful losers. In the beginning we were a bit hesitant to cut loose. You can see that in our early videos, but now we just go for it. It’s almost like we just don’t care. We just have a type of energy that’s hard for most bands to tap into.
Cam: The fact that our songs kick ass helps. Most bands, their clothes rock louder than they do. It’s always nice to have something to look at, but when the music sucks, who fucking cares?

Skratch: Anything else you think we should know about the band?

Anger: We recently added new bass player D.J. Lara and drummer Parker Johnston to the band. D.J. used to play with The Generators and The Pigeonz and P.J. is from The Politicians and Wake the Dead. We needed more experience in our rhythm section. That’s why Cam & I decided to make the changes when we did. This band was ready to move to the next level and we were being held back, other than that we just want to destroy the world.
Cam: We fully intend to ruin everything you thought you knew about anything. You will love Piss N’ Blood.
Anger: Or hate us! Either way it makes us happy.

"Piss N' Blood Interview for Punk Globe"

Johnny has known the band since April 2009 when he saw them play for the first time at The Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, NV. PISS N' BLOOD met their current drummer P.J. at the same show. PISS N' BLOOD is based out of Orange, CA. The band members live in L.A. and Orange Counties. PISS N' BLOOD was interviewed at the Route 66 Roadhouse & Tavern in Duarte, CA after their gig. PISS N' BLOOD consists of Ron Anger – Vocals/Rhythm guitar, Cam Mosavian – Lead guitar, D.J. Lara – Bass and P.J. (Parker Johnston) – Drums. PISS N' BLOOD was founded in August 2007 by Anger & Mosavian, and after a few member changes they are starting to build serious recognition as a band.
PISS N' BLOOD

PUNK GLOBE: One of my favorite bands. If my life had a soundtrack Piss N' Blood would be playing on that soundtrack for sure.
PISS N' BLOOD: (hoots & howls, clapping, laughing).
PUNK GLOBE: I'm being honest. There are a couple of songs that would be on that.
ANGER: We love that.
PUNK GLOBE: Old Boring Rebels would be one of those.
ANGER: We didn't even play that tonight.
PUNK GLOBE: No, you didn't, but it's cool because I enjoy all the stuff you guys play. Basically we want to get down to the bottom of what Piss N' Blood is? So, first of all we want to know where the name comes from?
ANGER: Piss N' Blood comes from… Uhhh, I watch a lot of history documentaries. I've always been very much into history. When I say I'm into history, I'm not into just past history, but I'm into present and future history. In this particular instance I was watching a World War I documentary and they were interviewing an old World War I veteran, he was talking about trench warfare and he said that when they were in the trenches that they were up to their ankles in "piss and blood". I really couldn't fuckin' believe this guy said it when he did, you know? I mean, it's like you're thinking "Oh yeah, I'm watching a History Channel documentary…" and then the guy is like, "Oh yeah, we were up to our ankles in piss and blood!" I was like "wow". It just seemed to perfectly illustrate the brutality of that war.
PUNK GLOBE: So, the name kicks ass right? Just like the band?
ANGER: I hope so (laughter).
PUNK GLOBE: It does dude! It definitely does. Whenever I mention the name Piss N' Blood, other people are like, last Sunday's show for instance, "this band Piss N' Blood" they're like "Dude, that fuckin' name kicks ass". So, you know, you got a good start. People come to see you just because of the name. Pretty bitchin', you know?
ANGER: I really felt it was one of those types of things you hear where somebody is honestly trying to convey what they experienced, and the hardship that this guy experienced was just so incredible to me. He talked about the rats in the trenches and what they had to live in 24 hours a day. It's not like these trenches ever got cleaned out. You know what I mean? They had to live in this shit. When you think about it, it's just unreal. It's fucking unreal. Next question…
PUNK GLOBE: Ron, we know that you played in a band called Lost Cause in '82.
ANGER: That was a very shitty band (laughter).
PUNK GLOBE: A very shitty band, but it was a good band because from what I've heard from mp3's it was pretty good. It almost seemed like it was a little bit ahead of it's time. Especially with all the bands that were happening during those years at the time you were playing in that band. I was really very impressed. I was like "Fuck, this shit's good". You know? In those words "This shit is good", I wasn't like "Oh man, I like this music". No, I was really impressed because to me Punk Rock is that '77 Punk Rock and not a lot from that '82 to '83, '84 style of music, you know? You and I had this discussion a couple of days ago in regards to what Punk Rock has evolved into, and in some way, some shape or form how it just isn't the same and how Piss N' Blood seems to keep it going with the roots that you were influenced by.
ANGER: It's only because most Punk Rock bores me. It always has. Most music in general bores the shit out of me. I'm glad you like old Lost Cause because I like what that band could have been.
PUNK GLOBE: I would say you were pretty good because I've listened to the lyrics and I know you only wrote one song which was Misfit, right?
ANGER: Misfit, yeah.
PUNK GLOBE: That's a pretty heavy song man.
ANGER: I only write from personal experience. I honestly never have and never will write anything other than personal experience. You know? I mean that's the only way to do it. It's a part of your life, and if it's not a part of your life, other than that it's just fantasy. It's not about fucking fantasy, you know?
EVERYONE: (laughter)
ANGER: That's funny you should bring up Lost Cause. I never really thought about it until just recently, but you know the one thing I can say about Lost Cause and Piss N' Blood is that as far as lead guitar goes there's a very direct line to 999.
PUNK GLOBE: Right.
ANGER: I think Guy Days is one of the most underrated guitar players that has ever existed. That guy is just fucking amazing. I mean he's just total Rock ‘n' Roll, and when I was in Lost Cause the lead guitar player from that band was totally influenced by Guy Days and that was one of the things he and I used to laugh about. Because nobody used to pick up on it, and now playing with Cam, Cam and I talk about it all the time. We both agree 999 is one of the most awesome bands of all time and Cam's style is a lot like Guy Days.
PUNK GLOBE: Would you say that a lot of the style you guys have is influenced by 999?
ANGER: In my opinion, absolutely.
PUNK GLOBE: I agree. I would say you guys are. Speaking of people that I've let listen to your mp3's of Lost Cause there are a lot of people saying "Why did these guys break up"? I've kind of filled them in on the history of what happened, but if that had never happened then Piss N' Blood might not have ever even existed in my opinion.
ANGER: Well, Lost Cause was a good learning experience. I mean that's basically all it was, a good learning experience.
PISS N' BLOOD

PUNK GLOBE: But when you and I talked about it earlier and I said, "Now I know where the name Ron Anger came from"... I know you went through and a lot of shit with the issues that happened within that band. Staying with the band, leaving the band and why you left the band, all the shit that was going on… You said to me "a few years later I adopted the name Ron Anger because of all the shit that was going on being in that band". To be honest I think Piss N' Blood is a step or two above Lost Cause, at the very least. I definitely think so.
ANGER: Lost Cause was dumped by our record label because I left the band. I was told by the head of the label that if I wasn't in the band then Lost Cause had no label, but there is absolutely no comparison. I mean, Piss N' Blood blows away anything Lost Cause in my opinion ever even tried to do. Lost Cause for it's time was pretty adventurous, but I think even now what I do with Piss N' Blood is way more adventurous. It just kind of steps out and takes charge. It's not afraid of what anybody thinks. It's not afraid to do or be what it is. I mean, basically everything else can just fuck off. That's what it boils down to. Everything else can fuck off. We don't care what anybody else is doing. We don't care whether it's cool. We don't care about anything other than what we're doing onstage that night when we're fucking playing.
PUNK GLOBE: You don't have to do anything you don't want to do.
ANGER: Yeah, exactly.
PUNK GLOBE: My guitar is out of tune, I don't give a fuck. I don't want to tune it, I'm gonna keep playing.
ANGER: Honestly though, I would prefer to have my guitar in tune. You know, In the middle of a show it's really hard to stop and tune your guitar. If it's that far out of tune and you're trying to ride on the momentum of the show, sometimes you know, for me as a rhythm guitar player I just have to put it aside and let Cam carry the show and say "Okay, here we go. It's all yours, I'm just gonna sing".
PUNK GLOBE: Cam does a good job man!
ANGER: Fucking absolutely!
PUNK GLOBE: Cam, you're the fucking man with the axe!
CAM: I do what I can sir.
PUNK GLOBE: You definitely do man.
ANGER: We write all of our songs to be played with just one guitar. We've done that from the very beginning. We've always been a one guitar band. Me playing guitar is just an added thing. It's kind of like the bonus guitar. So if I drop out we can still play a full gig and never think twice about it.
PUNK GLOBE: You've acquired two new band members, two new guys D.J. & P.J.
ANGER: Oh, I fucking hate those guys. Those guys are fucked!
PUNK GLOBE: D.J. who I've seen playing with The Generators many moons ago.
DJ: Yeah, that also was a learning experience for myself man, and I can't say I've found a bunch of warmer guys than I have with Piss N' Blood. The Generators were a great learning experience and they did some good stuff too, but I'm feeling the chemistry probably more here than any other band I've ever played with.
CAM: That's because we like to fucking Rock ‘n' Roll dude.
ANGER: Tito could you please get me a tissue?
EVERYONE: (laughter)
PUNK GLOBE: Then we have P.J. who's played with The Politicians, Wake the Dead and a couple of other bands.
PJ: Same thing as D.J. I haven't had too many people I've felt really comfortable with, playing and having fun and here's my roots, Punk Rock. This is actually the only stuff I ever wanted to play. I never found a band that actually wanted to do this, and they asked me to play and now I'm 110% in.
PUNK GLOBE: When I first saw you guys in Vegas I was fucking blown away. I was like "Fuck, these guys are awesome. This style of music sounds like the music I love listening to. This is kick ass music, I gotta be friends with these guys". I didn't know where you guys were from. For all I knew you guys were from Canada, but I was like, fuck, these guys are gonna come party with us tonight, and that's what happened. It's weird how we all ended up living so close to each other. Who'd have ever known that we'd all be standing here right now doing this interview?
ANGER: I kind of had the same feeling when I met you and P.J. in Vegas, but it's funny, I laugh when I hear you and P.J. talk about how much you liked the band because I think it's one of the worst shows that we ever did. The fact that you guys liked us as much as you guys do based off of that show, it shows that you guys have really fucking crappy taste in music.
PUNK GLOBE: You know what blew me away was the fact that you took the mic and you put it up to Cam's amp and you were like, hey everybody listen to this shit! That was like a fucking punch in the face. I was like "that's fucking genius". I'd never seen that before. I'm sure people have done it, but you were the first I've seen. Like tonight my brother was like, "That's pretty fucking crazy. I never thought of that". It just shows the bond you and Cam have and the bond you have with the band. You're just like, hear us out. It's amazing, pretty good.
ANGER: I guess it kind of goes back to the 999 thing and the Guy Days influence, because I know when he goes into a lead to me that's the most important or powerful part of the song. I want that to stand out. I want it to be in your face. So, if I can stick a microphone in front of the cabinet & those speakers and just let it blaze out over the P.A. then that's basically the way it's gonna happen.
PISS N' BLOOD

PUNK GLOBE: So, what would you say PISS N' BLOOD's main goal is and what is it that PISS N' BLOOD wants to accomplish as far as music goes?
CAM: World domination.
ANGER: I just want to everybody to fuck off.
CAM: To be the most explosive, raw energy, fucking dominating band ever.
DJ: In your face.
PUNK GLOBE: Money shot band.
CAM: It's funny you ask that question, because when me & Ron first met we were asking each other what we were both kind of into and what our objectives were for being in this band, and it was funny that both of us had the same answer when we asked "So what are you looking for?" and we both said "total world fucking domination".
ANGER: It's true. That is the absolute truth. It's like, what do you wanna do? I want to be in the best fucking band in the world. That was where we were coming from, and it was like well, how the fuck are we going to do this? It doesn't matter. You know what I mean? How were we gonna do it? We're just gonna do it! How? Who fucking knows how? That's not the point. It's the goal. The goal is the fucking important thing. It's like every show we play, we honestly think that every show we play sucks. You know? I mean we really do. We are always trying to be better each show.
PUNK GLOBE: I can honestly say from being in the audience that each show I see is better than the last. Which kind of goes to the next question I have in regards to what do you see going on with people today like the kids? No one's coming out to shows blah, blah, blah you know? For some reason nobody wants to go out to shows. Even a FREE show, you know? It's hard to drag people out whenever I tell people "Hey, come check this band out, come check that band out". Since I've been friends with you guys I've been telling people "Hey, come check this band out because it'll be like a slap in your face and a kick to your nuts" to wake people the fuck up because I feel like a lot of the bands out there are just so boring. You guys played at Tropics Lounge a few weeks ago, I was there and the 3 bands that played before you guys all sounded the same. I don't know the kids that played, but they all sounded boring to me. You guys go up and it's just like cool, refreshing. I was like "Alright, this is what I came out for. I finally get to see a band. I finally get to hear music" and it sucks because growing up I know I used to get excited to go see a band whether they were a headlining band or not. I used to take the bus from La Puente all the way to Venice, downtown L.A., to the Valley, wherever the fuck a band was playing just to go see a band play, nowadays most kids are spoiled. They all drive, but they're like "Aw, it's too far, I'll just go on the internet and check out this band". I feel like people need to wake up and realize, hey this is what it's all about, and PISS N' BLOOD definitely needs to be heard, you know, for sure.
ANGER: This is just my point of view. I'm totally anti video games and really for the most part I'm anti television. I think that all kids do now is stay indoors, they don't have to go anywhere, they don't have to do anything, they don't have to experience anything and it's directly opposite to the way I grew up. Part of what was important to me when I was growing up was going out and finding these bands that were exciting, but it wasn't just finding them, it was actually being there and being part of a scene. There's not a lot of All Ages Shows for these kids these days and that's a big problem right there, but even if they had more All Ages Shows I still think that there's a lot of kids that just wouldn't show up. You can't pry them out of their dwelling.
CAM: Plus when there's nothing but shitty music out there how are you going to get kids to go see bands that suck?
ANGER: Ah, that's a good point.
CAM: Like when I was a kid going to shows, the opening act you never knew what you were going to get and once in a blue moon you'd wanna be there early because sometimes those opening acts would just open your eyes to a new band that just totally kicked your ass, and then after awhile it just started getting really stagnant, everybody wanted to sound like the next band. There was a lack of new fresh air there and I think kids were kind of like "Well fuck, what is there"? I mean why bother when everything is mushed together into one fucking bore fest?
ANGER: Well that's basically what it's kind of boiled down to is that kids have a preconceived idea of what Punk Rock is and you end up with a bunch of bands that all sound the same, you can't distinguish one band from the next and you can't distinguish one song from the next and it pulls the whole thing down into a complete state of irrelevance. I mean who gives a fuck? If all the bands that are playing sound the same and all the songs sound the same it's almost like you should just have one band get up on stage and play for 4 hours. I mean that's basically what it boils down to, and you can't understand a single fucking goddamn word their saying. So, if they really have something to say then why don't they make more of an effort for you the listener to be able to understand what the fuck they're saying, because we all understand that you're fucking pissed off. I mean everybody knows that, that's just a fucking given. Make an effort for people to understand, I mean what the fuck are you saying, what are you talking about?
PUNK GLOBE: With that being said, what is it that PISS N' BLOOD wants the readers to see and hear and read in regards to what PISS N' BLOOD is all about?
ANGER: That's a good question. My first instinct is to say, and I can't speak for the other guys, I can only speak for myself, but I almost just basically hate everyone. I hate to say that, but it's kind of true. I mean, I really do.
EVERYONE: (laughter)
PUNK GLOBE: Ron Anger speaking the truth.
CAM: He's speaking for the whole band too.
ANGER: I think if you were to put it on a ratio of intelligent people to morons it would be 30% intelligent people and 70% total fucking idiots. That's just kind of the way the world is. I heard Truman Capote say that when I was a little kid and I remember doing the math in my head and thinking "You know, that sounds just about right". 30% intelligent and 70% just total fucking assholes. I think the ratio of assholes is going up now to maybe 80%. Eighty – twenty. People are just fucking stupid. They believe everything they're fucking force fed. That's why I don't like T.V. That's why I don't like radio, because it's all run by people who want to ram bullshit down your throat. They all have something to gain from it, and what that is, is they're all trying to make money off of your stupidity. You're stupid. We know you're stupid and we're going to make money off of the fact that you are stupid.
PUNK GLOBE: So, the people that are trying to make money off of the stupid people are part of the 30%?
ANGER: No. Yes, actually yes they are, but they're less than the 30%. They're more like the 1% that run the whole fucking show.
PUNK GLOBE: They know what's going on.
ANGER: Exactly.
PUNK GLOBE: They're the 1%ers.
ANGER: They're not even 1%, probably like point two five. It's probably not even point two five. It's probably even smaller than that.
DJ: Yeah man, I feel the same way. There's a lot of bullshit out there and all these douches on T.V. and it makes me sick of T.V. as well. So, I'm right there with Ron on the whole scene. All the stuff that I own and listen to is dated. It's from the past because that's the good shit, you know. I was just talking with P.J. today about the bands out nowadays… There are some good players out there, but they just can't past the fact that all of they're songs sound alike. I'm really stoked that we have actually accomplished that and I'm pretty proud of that myself, you know, because very few bands can distinguish one song from the next and we do that pretty damn good.
CAM: To answer that last question Johnny about "What do you think it is that PISS N' BLOOD is about"? You're just going to have to come see PISS N' BLOOD play.
ANGER: We're against the dumbing down of society. I'm talking about any society, European, Middle Eastern, Western Civilization especially. You know, there's no such thing as McDonald's anymore, its Mickey D's. Kentucky Fried Chicken is KFC. It's all about don't learn how to speak properly, don't learn how to talk in complete sentences, don't read anything, do anything, just be fucking stupid and you'll get along. It's fucking bullshit. This world is going down the toilet and the people that are making all the money they don't give a fuck. They don't fucking care what happens to you. They're gonna flush you down the toilet and the rest of the world down the toilet as long as they make the buck that they're after. They don't fucking care about you, that goes for record companies, anybody. They don't fucking care. They are going to rape you and fuck you in the ass and throw you in the gutter when they're done and they're gonna say "That was really fucking great, who's the next person we can fuck and how can we fuck ‘em, in the most economic way"?
PISS N' BLOOD

PUNK GLOBE: I don't even know what to say to that. I'm just gonna laugh because it's the truth. It's the truth, definitely.
CAM: Round of applause.
EVERYONE: (clapping & laughing)
DJ: Ron should get the Nobel Peace Prize for that one.
ANGER: They should come up with a new one. The full on War Prize ‘cause I'd like to wage war against the mother fuckers man.
PUNK GLOBE: I don't know what else to go on. I think you guys pretty much narrowed it down. I asked you what you want the readers to know about PISS N' BLOOD and you pretty much answered it.
ANGER: I can tell you exactly what I want people to know about this band. This band is about personal freedom. I don't care who fuck you are. I don't care what the fuck you do. As long as you're not hurting somebody else and fucking somebody else over then you should have the right to do what you want to do.
PUNK GLOBE: So when people come to your show to see your band play, what should they expect? How should they act? You know a lot of times people go watch certain bands and they act retarded, they act civilized, they act brotherly or they just act like stupid drunks. You know, they just don't give a fuck. What should people expect from a PISS N' BLOOD show?
ANGER: Just be responsible for your own actions. Don't do stupid shit that's going to ruin it for everybody else. There is no reason that you should fuck shit up for other people. When I talk about personal freedom I'm talking about being able to live without fucking hassle. I mean, who gives a fuck if gay people get married? Why is that such a big fucking deal to everybody? I don't fucking understand. If gay people want to get married then fucking let ‘em get married. I mean, why is that such a fucking issue, you know? Because some fucking morons believe in some fable from like what, 2000 years ago or something, that was written by the Catholic Church? Fuck that. It's so fucking ridiculous. The church sucks and I don't care what religion you're talking about. You suck. Christianity, Judaism, Islam. Get the fuck over your selves, you all fucking suck, especially the religions that are trying to convert somebody. If you're trying to convert people then you fucking blow. Buddhists, do you ever see Buddhists running around saying if you're not Buddhist you're not cool? Buddhists don't give a fuck if you're Buddhist or not. They don't fucking care. Hindus they don't give a fuck if you're Hindu or not. They don't give a fuck. Jews don't really care either whether you're Jewish or not. Yeah, you're not in they're club, but it's not like they're holding it against you, but Christians and Muslims, fuck ‘em. They are just the most judgmental pieces of shit. I don't like religious people at all. I really don't. I am so anti religion I can't even put it into words. I cuss a lot don't I?
PUNK GLOBE: I guess that's your religion.
CAM: Talking about personal freedom and what PISS N' BLOOD is about, when you come to the shows personal freedom doesn't give you carte blanche to disregard other people around you and be a douche bag. That's not what that means.
ANGER: Yeah, and we're not into the slavery that major corporations try to impose on people around the world. They talk about creating jobs… Hey, working at McDonald's isn't a fucking job okay? That's just a polite way of saying; hey you're a really nice slave, a free slave. Yeah, fuck you.
PJ: You guys made me hungry for Jack in the Box.
ANGER: Buy the Treason single with B-side song 24 Hour Machine.
CAM: You can visit www.pissnblood.com and buy it straight from us or you can go to iTunes.
ANGER: And we're going into the studio January 23 to record our next single, and everybody else can fuck off.
PUNK GLOBE: All I have to say is don't add ‘em on myspace until you've attended one or two of their shows. That's it. Don't be lazy, get off your ass and go to a show or two.
ANGER: Mother fuckers that are on myspace that add you just because they want to have a lot of friends, you're not doing us any favors because when we send you invites to gigs and you mark us as junk mail all you're doing is fucking us over because myspace blocks us as spammers. So fuck you, delete us as your friend. We don't want you.
PUNK GLOBE: All I can say is I miss the days when people would walk up to you and hand you a flyer and you'd look at the bill "Wow, a couple of bands are playing, I'm there". Now that shit doesn't happen anymore, people just throw flyers away.
ANGER: Now that everybody thinks the internet is the information space highway they think they're going to "make it" off that. You gotta get out there and play.
PUNK GLOBE: When I first started tuning in to podcasts I said to myself "Wow, people don't have to go to shows anymore, they can stay at home and watch the show". You watch these bands play on the internet, but where is the audience? The audience is sitting behind the computer screen and that's gotta stop.
ANGER: We did get to sign our first pair of boobies tonight.
PUNK GLOBE: I think we pretty much summed it all up.
ANGER: I hope this helps somebody. I don't know who the fuck is going to be interested in this, but I hope they get something out of it.
PUNK GLOBE: If you're a real Punk Rocker definitely pay attention to this interview and check the band out and go from there. That's all I gotta say.
ANGER: Oh yeah, that's another thing I want to say, when are the Sex Pistols going to come out with a new album? You're out there playing live shows, put out a new goddamn fucking record. I'm tired of the old songs.
PISS N' BLOOD

PUNK GLOBE: They need to stop putting their name on shoes and put out albums.
ANGER: Do they really put their name on shoes?
EVERYBODY: Yeah!
CAM: On Vans. They got they're own high tops.
ANGER: I've never seen those. I don't want Sex Pistols shoes, I want a new Sex Pistols album. Fuck your fucking shoes, I want a new album. I want a new album!
CAM: And the interview ends when PISS N' BLOOD has to load all of their equipment back onto the truck and go home.
ANGER: You're not working tomorrow, what do you care? Thank you to all the unemployed people that stayed to see us play tonight, we love you. You're the ones that are there for the Sunday night gigs and the mid week gigs that nobody else would normally show up to. The unemployed we love you, the ones that George Bush created.
DJ: The ones that fell through the cracks.
Punk Globe would like to thank Johnny Hollywood and Piss N Blood for the Interview.. - Ginger Coyote

Bio

Born out of frustration and disgust with the current political, economic and social climate, Piss N’ Blood was formed in August 2007 by Ron Anger (former vocalist for the Orange County band Lost Cause), and lead guitar player Cameron Mosavian (ex-drummer The Rekoning). Mosavian had recently left The Rekoning when the two met after Mosavian answered an ad placed by Anger looking for musicians to start a new band. Anger christened the band Piss N' Blood after watching a World War I documentary on T.V. In the documentary a veteran being interviewed about the war said that the soldiers in the trenches were up to their ankles in "piss and blood". The statement stuck with Anger and he knew he had the name for the band.

Anger & Mosavian built a rehearsal studio together and worked on writing new songs throughout 2008 as Piss N' Blood started to gig with the original lineup of Anger, Mosavian, Brad Hicks (drums) and Josh Roush (bass). The band released Treason as their first single in May 2009 with 24 Hour Machine as the B-side track. The single has been well received since it's release including an outstanding review from SugarBuzz Magazine by SugarBuzz editor Lucky, who called it an "Ace back to back smack in the mouth". Hicks and Roush were replaced in mid 2009 by bass player D.J. Lara (The Generators, The Pigeonz) and drummer Parker Johnston (The Politicians, Wake the Dead).

With a solid lineup intact Piss N' Blood has set out to make a reputation for themselves as the most venomous Rock 'n' Roll band in the world. Everytime Anger opens his mouth is proof of that as seen in previous interviews with magazine's such as Punk Globe and Skratch Magazine. The band takes great pride in calling themselves the most relevant and important band in existence. Piss N' Blood is just waiting for everyone else to catch up. Called “charismatic” by their peers, Piss N’ Blood have just begun to conquer/destroy the music landscape that exists today.
