– interview-

Straight from Boston playing all over USA, Canada and several times in Europe. Sharing the stages with bands as Dropkick Murphy’s, The Real Mckenzies, Less than Jake and all the biggest names ok punkrock scene. Far From Finished after the Vans Warped Tour 2010 come back in Europe. We met Steve a couple of hours before their first show in Italy.

How’s going your european tour so far?

Is going really well, we are on tour about three weeks and three weeks more. We’ve been in Spain, Southern France so far and now Italy. It’s fun!

What about the 2010 Vans Warped Tour? Which band impressed you more?

I really appreciated two bands: Riverboat Gamblers and a new band from Chicago called AM Taxi, a really cool rock ‘n roll band. They had a big tour-bus and stuff and we spent funny hours with them. They had the computer music behind the van, with just rock’n’roll band, kind like Ramones or something like that. They often hosted us in their van and said: “Come on guys! Drink a beer, if you need internet no problem…” Very nice guys and a really good band. AM Taxi. 

You come from Boston.. In Italy we imagine that is one of best places to play punk and hc, we suppose the scene is still great there, is it true? 

A lot of people have the same impression and actually is true. I move the Boston for the graduate high school, I’m from New York originally. When a I move the Boston I found a scene really strong, really united. There’s a good scene, people look out each other and there’s not too much competition and that’s really cool for me.

Is there a band or an artist you’d love play with?

Absolutely! I’d love to play the dead boys, the Ramones, the Clash, the Dictators even. Modern day, modern bands.. I don’t know! 

We got a play with Dead to me for the first time a couple a week ago. We were in Belgium, it was a funny show. They did a great show wow! I’ve never seen them, good sound, great attitude, nice guys. Fucking good band! I’m a fan.

And… AM Taxi I say again.

What’s the first thing you do when you’ll be back in Boston?

Probably the first thing I wanna do is…spending time with girfriend and my dog. Maybe go get some pizza…I’d like to eat pizza today, but I don’t know! In Boston there’s place.. has an Irish name but the pizza is very good, probably I’ll go there. I mean just relax, take a walk with the dog, play the piano and maybe go fishing.

And what about the next future of the band?

I hope to record a new cd. We’re thinking about to come back in UK in March with Stiff Little Fingers and then maybe a planet tour, in the rest of Europe of course. Probably a tour in the States in some point. First of all we’ll try to ridefine the line-up again, I wanna be back to be a complete band and then another record.
