When the demo E.P. of their 'Who Loves This' hit our desk last month, we were pretty relieved to know that the spirit of punk is being kept alight by the British youth of today.Generation are a slap-to-the-face as opposed to a breath-of-fresh-air, and efficiently fuse the vigour, sound and style of every kind of rock'n'roll music. Which chiefly means that you'll love them too.


The four-piece formed a year ago in Liverpool, with two brothers James and Dean Carne seeking out Tom Collins and Nathan Sanderson some six months later. Early as it is, the band have already found themselves signed to The Spirit of Punk label, and supporting the likes Slaves and Idles. Their E.P. is a heady mix, coalescing the vibes and attitude of The Cramps, Stooges and Sonics. And they certainly look the part.


The guys are a haze of leopard, safety pins and studs- two smiling and two smouldering. Their subversion of youth and new, with past remnants of cool is dizzying at times. It's a rare sight to see a band with such attention to style in today's scenes. Their DIY patches and raw adornments project as quite opulent at times. Equating to perfectly mirror the way they sound.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BAND TO PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T HEARD OF YOU GUYS BEFORE?
Fast, loud & a lot of fun... it's just rock & roll x10. I think the only way to understand it is to be stood in front of it and watch us live on stage. That's the only time it makes sense to us really.


DO YOU GUYS HAVE A GIG YOU'VE PLAYED THAT HAS STOOD OUT FOR YOU?
Supporting Slaves in our hometown of Liverpool. It was our first ever gig as 'Generation' and it was mental. [It was at] The Zanzibar - shout out to Tony Butler (legend) - it was rammed. The walls were dripping with sweat and to be able to open up for someone who you were listening to the day before was just top...everything about it was top. We have massive love for that place.


WHAT DOES THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE FOR GENERATION?
We're back in the studio recording a new single. All we can tell you for now is that it sounds massive and we can't wait for you to hear it. Other than that we're just gigging constantly up and down the country preaching the Generation Gospel. It's a lot of fun... and we wouldn't have it any other way..


WHAT SONG OR ALBUM DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN AND WHY?
'Funhouse' by The Stooges. Purely because we'd never heard anything like it before. Me and our Jay grew up on our Dad's northern soul and funk music, like Funkadelic, Edwin Starr etc. We were latecomers to the rock music scene, and to hear that album at the age of 17/18 just opened up a whole new world to us. It seemed like overnight we were writing this music that fused raw teenage emotion with day-to-day life. It was special - to us at least.
