And my cat really did get caught in the dryer in deadbeat holiday
First punk show I was supposed to go to was Circle Jerks at the Mab in SF when I was 14. But I was grounded and couldn't go. Ugh..
39/smooth was named after my brother. He turned 39 the day we recorded that LP. Dec 29 1989.
Smooth was a stoner thing between me and mike. We couldn't decide to call it 39 or smooth. So we went with both!
3. Why that song -- you know, Green Day's breakout single -- is called "Longview."
Our friend/roadie Kaz Hope, suggested we call our song Longview because the 1st time we played was in Longview Washington in spring 1992
Judges Daughter is about a "judges daughter" back in hi school. Had a crush on her and I thought her dad would throw me in prison.
First time in new york was summer of 90. We couldn't get a gig. Only drove through. Went to 53rd and 3rd and left.
I snuck in a Dickies show in 89 @ berkeley square. Licked a hand stamp and rubbed it on my hand. Great gig! Thanks eggplant!
I will be performing in my bedrOom by myself in front of my dog and stuffed animals. no charge and no guest list. Tickets still available!
