Me First And The Gimme Gimmes
Ruin Jonny’s Bar Mitzvah (Fat)
by Sarah Katz
Just when you thought they couldn’t get any worse – I mean better – Me First and the Gimme Gimmes‘ ruin this poor kids Bar Mitzvah. I can only dream of how much more kick ass my Bar Mitzvah would’ve been if the Gimme Gimmes’ had ruined it.
As soon as the album arrived at Lollipop office, I popped it into the piece of shit stereo, and proceeded to bop my head until Scott’s ears bled (he loved every minute of it). I’d tell you my favorite tracks, but I love them all.
Holy challahs! The CD is enhanced with some hilarious video footage, including Grandma’s getting tossed around in the mosh pit. The songs are not actually wonderful, in fact they kind of suck. But that’s the point. The Gimme Gimmes’ know they suck, and are proud of it. When they start “Strawberry Fields Forever,” mess it up, babble, and then start over from the beginning, it’s ok because this is punk rock, and these are the Gimme Gimmes.
Now, the only question left, is if I ever get married (god forbid), who do I call to book the Gimme Gimmes’ to ruin my wedding?
