Ruin Jonny's Bar Mitzvah





For those that don't know, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are the greatest cover band of all time. Spawned by singer Spike Slawson in 1996, the band features NOFX bassist Fat Mike, Lagwagon singer/guitarist Joey Cape, No Use For A Name guitarist Chris Shiflett, and Lagwagon drummer Dave Raun. Since they're creation, the band has been touring with the warped tour, putting out records and offering their services for weddings and bar mitzvahs. While they played their first wedding a while ago, it was only recently that someone actually accepted their offer and invited the band to perform at a bar mitzvah. That lucky kid, named Jonny, now has his first day of manhood documented for all eternity, as Me First recorded their set for a live album. Ruin Jonny's Bar Mitzvah finds the band tackling tracks they never have before, including "Stairway To Heaven", "Strawberry Fields", Blondie's "Heart Of Glass" and even "Hava Nagila"! The best part is that Fat Wreck Chords videotaped the entire thing, put together some highlights and included them on the enhanced CD. Needless to say, it's damn good and of course, quite funny.
