Q&A - Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

Q&A - Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Oct 24, 2006

No matter how many super-hip alt-country side projects you hear coming from punk rockers this year, you won't hear one like Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' latest.

The Gimmes, which collects members of NOFX, The Foo Fighters, Lagwagon and Swingin' Utters, hits on a slew of new and classic country songs, finding an affinity for the music that was absent in its previous jaunt through R&B. Where the Gimmes were best known for tongue-in-cheek humor, this time around, there seems to be some genuine appreciation of the music going on. What gives?
