Interview with Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – Podcast 45

Posted by rich on January 9, 2007

Welcome back from your amazing holiday season. I hope you got all the meaningless material possessions you could ever ask for, and with any luck you got totally sloshed at least once and did something you’ll regret. Baby Jesus would be proud.

Enough ape shittary, on to the stuff you came for, our exciting first interview of the New Year! We figured the best way to kick off the start to out amazingly mediocre podcast is with an amazingly mediocre band. But what band could be so bland as to meet our standards? We needed a band that not only lacked all creative abilities but also dressed like complete asshats. We could mean none other than Fat Wrecks world famous herpes sore Me First and the Gimme Gimmes!

Alright, so they aren’t that bad but when a band makes so much fun of themselves it’s hard not to join in. We had the dubious honor of sitting and talking with Joey Cape and Fat Mike while they pretty much took potshots at me the entire time.

NOTE: I would like to make two statements in my own defense
1)the comment I make about The Monkees being like the U.S. Beatles was a joke, though Fat Mike took plenty of shots at me over it.

2)When I mention the discarded album title Can’t Quit You that the band seemed so confused about I read it in several places (Link), on the internet…way to not have my back internet.

Anyhow, be sure to check out the last eight minutes to learn how to ENTER TO WIN!!! a copy of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes’ new album, Love Their Country. When it’s free you can’t go wrong. Always feel free to drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on the MySpace or on the comments section. And remember, you’re listening to the internet.
