S.T.R.E.E.T.S. perform at Sabala's Mt Tabor on Saturday June 18
The rumor I heard was that S.T.R.E.E.T.S. stands for "Skating Totally Rules, Everything Else Totally Sucks." Is that right?
Well kind of, we made the acronym after we already had the name. It originally came from the saying "See you on the streets."
Has there been a lot of confusion with The Streets, the UK garage rapper?
I don't know, sometimes I guess.
Nice answer. What happened in San Diego when you guys got busted for tagging "S.T.R.E.E.T.S." on the wall of the bar after you played?
The tagging thing was more of an art project involving more people than just the band members. It seemed like it was really bringing the community together. We offered to paint over it, but [the venue's owners] weren't into it.
What is the best skateboard character ever?
Steve Rocco. Oh wait, he's real! Spicoli, nah--Wonton Animal Chin. Definitely not Flameboy.
As a skater, what is worse, cops or rollerbladers?
Cops on rollerblades.
As a kid, when you used to play T&C Surf on Nintendo, what character did you choose? Thrilla Gorilla or Joe Cool?
Thrilla Gorilla, because I'm a drummer.
