Interview with CCTV All-Stars

CCTV All-Stars tell All

We caught up with the CCTV All-stars after their performance at Cross club on Thursday night, where they teamed up with French ska band Les Fils de Teuhpu to totally and completely rock the place into a jump-up-and-down frenzy. 

Follow the links above and get their music happening while you read the following interview, or else risk certain doom. 

Questions were compiled in advance by interviewing patrons of a local pub to find out what they really want to know about their favorite band, if they could ask anything. 

Without further ado, the CCTV All-Stars.  Note: lead singer Ed refused to open his mouth until all the band members were present -- another check mark in the "man has a brain" coloumn.
