They are planning a West Coast Tour in August

Punk Globe: Can you give us the 411 on your new CD?
Don't Wanna' is a full length album. We're really happy with the way it

Punk Globe: Has it been released yet?
Tim: Yeah, it was released in Australia on June 1st and was available mid may overseas.
Punk Globe: Have you been getting a lot of airplay in Australia?
no. Australian radio hates old school punk rock, we get played a fair
bit community radio stations around Australia.
But as far as commercial
stations you don't have a chance in hell.

online through interpunk. In Australia it is available through Missing

United States in the summer. Tell us about your upcoming tour?
really happy to be heading back, last year we played with
a band called
the Harrington Saints from Oakland. We hit it off and
were on the road

the places we played last year
and catching up with the people we met
and drinking all your crappy American beer.

Punk Globe: I
have heard rumors that you will be having royalty joining
Slick 46 on a
few choice shows??
I have heard that Dame Edna Everage may pop in to
say 'Hello Possums' to the crowd....And wow em' with her sexy gams and
Tim: Of course... Royalty follows Slick 46 wherever we go. We're a bunch of refined fuckers. But that is true, she may be appearing.
Punk Globe: Tell us about your Southern California and Arizona dates as well as your shows in San Francisco..
really looking forward about heading to Tucson and Phoenix. Its amazing
scenery out there, you feel like you're in a cowboy movie.

there's a few that we played with last year,
but in general there's a lot
of new bands that were playing with this year.
A lot more street punk
bands this year, such as
Blue Collar Criminals and Yesterdays Heroes.
Yeah, we're really looking forward to watching all the
new bands we've
never played with.
Punk Globe: I had really hoped that you could have gotten a show at
Safari Sam's or The Knitting Factory... Oh well, it is their loss. .
Tim: Yeah it's their loss, fuck 'em. Maybe next year,
with Dame Edna in tow we should be able to swing a gig.
Punk Globe: Can you give the readers your My Space Profile address
