ABC Stores

1. How did you get your band name?
We couldn't think of a band name for the longest time and we thought ABC Stores would work temporarily... turned out to be sort of permanent.

2. How did this band get started?
We all went to the same kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school, so we thought... why not make a band?

3. What bands are you influenced by?
Most bands on AP.net from a while back and some other bands.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would it be and why?
Punchline. We've seen those guys come to Japan a lot and we owe them a lot.

5. If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?
A polar bear. That would be the life.

6. Why should people listen to your band?
We enjoy playing our music so we hope everyone else can enjoy it with us.

7. If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?

My family, friends and the world.

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
The resurrection of the CD.

Our own songs.

Yokohama, Japan!

I feel like we 'make it' when we have a good time playing.

17. What is something that most fans don't know about you?
We're still making music.

Summer vacation.
