Rundown Kreeps: Don't Eat the Cod

Christmas lights and art cascade around the Rundown Kreeps practice space. A silkscreen station is set up at the front of the garage-turned-practice-space, where the Kreeps have made their home. I am greeted by Richard Lamas, lead singer and guitarist.  Standing next to him is Anthony Melendez, Bassist/Randy Savage fanatic. Soon after, I am introduced to Steven Lamas, Drummer. Steve is accompanied by Lucy, a tiny grey kitten they had found a week earlier.
The name Rundown Kreeps is a combination of “Runaway Boys” from Stray Cats and “The Creeps” by Social Distortion. Anyway, let’s get to the interview already in progress.
