Q: I love the concept of live albums, why this E.P.? Why now?
CUFFS: This was the inevitable outcome of being away from the practice space, stage and studio for so long. We’re super proud of it, and it really needed to happen. It’s a strange thing, I thought coming back to practice and performance was gonna feel alien, but it fit like a glove.
Q: How did Cuffs initially come together?
CUFFS: Matt and Lewis had been playing together since they were bare faced kids, so the foundations of the band were already laid. They’d auditioned a few vocalists, but settled on me [Brodie Morgans]. Ballbag joined a few months later after chatting to Lewis about guitar hero.
Q: The leading single is Cash Cow, are there any plans to make a video for this song?
CUFFS: Possibly in the future, but I think we got the message across with the live video. Got a few video ideas in the bag for future projects.
Q: What is the UK live show punk scene like? Any mosh pits happening?
CUFFS: The punk scene wherever you go is incredible. The UK scene is just as welcoming as the scene in any other country. Different people from different walks of life, coming together to show love to the music and each other.
Q: What does the Cuffs typically write about?
CUFFS: Politics and social issues. Simple as that. We may delve into other topics in the future, but in a time of such injustice, it’s important we use our voices for the right reasons.
Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one of your songs to listen to, what would it be?
CUFFS: You Make Me Sick. Super proud of what we achieved and created with that one.
