FAQs

OK, this is the page where we try to answer all your questions.  We've started you off with some of the most commonly asked stuff but feel free to submit your own questions.  The best ones, along with our answers, will be posted here!

--------------------------------------------------

Why are you called Panic?

Well, back in 1994, when there weren't quite as many bands knocking about as is the case these days, we were quite into the idea of having a short band name.  There was no need for putting three random words together as is now so cool, so "Panic Sets Fire" was not yet an option.  It was either gonna be "Panic", "The Vapids" or "Tot Flip-Flop and the Back Packs".  We obviously knew of a couple of other bands from the eighties called Panic, but just thought "Fuck 'em".

So in a nutshell, yes, we are named after the Screeching Weasel drummer.  There.  I admitted it.  I hope you're all happy now.

How do I get Panic to play my town / christening / funeral?

As we have now sold out, we can no longer accept bookings directly.  Unless it's for a lot of money.  In that case, contact us directly so we don't have to give anyone a 15% cut.  We're sadly not really that expensive to book.  You can email our booking agency here:  blahblahblahbookings@hotmail.com

I thought you lot had split up ages ago, what happened?

No, we have never split up.  What happened was that you discovered emo music and simply lost touch with what we were doing.

Man, you've had a lot of bass players.  Jamie and Tot must be total arseholes to work with.

That wasn't really a question, but I will answer anyway.  You must understand that both myself and Tot are extremely passionate about what we do and have a great love of this business.  Not everybody can raise themselves to the levels of workmanship and the standards of performance that we expect of ourselves.  Not everybody out there is willing to make the sacrifices, sweat, bleed, carry equipment and pay the price to "make it" in this industry.

That and the fact that we are a couple of absolute cunts.

-------------------------------------------------

Why are you still playing pop-punk?

We're not.  We're a punk rock band.  Fuck off.  See, that's punk.
