Jocks, Tuck: Pricks



The lesson is, as always, high school students are pricks. The jocks are too dumb to realize that it’s the music geeks who get all the action, and the musicians think that just because Marty Moon and Andy Capp attended their most recent show that their band only attract alcoholic degenerate cartoon characters. (Well that’s actually true. And not a bad thing. )

But even so, that bass player is a Tuck-head. He thinks they had  sub-par show because he unwittingly spent the whole time facing the back wall.


  1. Wow, Derek’s passing up a chance to hang out at The Bucket with 56-year-old Robbbbb LaRue? Smart guy.

    And excuse me, Tuck, but isn’t “a little sloppy” one of the hallmarks of cowpunk?

  2. I wonder if Backyard Tire Fire uses a Brinks truck to haul their gear around too.

    Focus schmocus, six people came to see us play, and one of ’em was Marty “Sir, how many times do we have to tell you you can’t bring your own bottle in here” Moon.

  3. Wish I could Bryce, but squeezing into a booth with six other guys of questionable orientation isn’t my thing. Later that weekend, the scarfaced hooker Marty order meets him in the bar. Marty doesn’t mind a girl whose all scarred up, he can’t get it up anyway.

  4. Strip one: Are Bryce and 65 year old Robbbbbbb on a bus?

    Strip two…that looks like a swastika on the drum? Are SlimJim and the No chances the official band of Jesse James?

    That woman with the hideous scar is freaking me out. I think she wandered in from Night of the Living Dead.

  5. Glad to see Backyard Tire Fire get a shout out. Seen them open a couple times for Rev. Horton Heat. Really cool guys. I got tore up with their drummer at one gig.

  6. Off topic: Seems like any time the Rev. Horton Heat plays in my neck o’ the woods, Th’ Legendary Shackshakers open. I’ve not seen or heard of Backyard Tire Fire but those Shackshakers kinda scare the hell out of me.

  7. 4/24 P3: Hey Rubbb, the 30’s called; they want their hair style back!

    #4 Nice spot of the Turd Reich symbol Regina. Guess that discourages the cat calls and booing these band bozos so richly deserve.

  8. No Regina & SemperFi, it may look like a swastika on the drum, but it is not. Has all three leaves pointing in the same direction…

  9. Nuts to this! I want Shep! Shep’s about the only interesting character we’ve seen in the past two years.

  10. That’s not Moon, drinking a brew and looking angry that he paid a cover charge for this, front-and-center in 4/26 is it?
    If it’s not, it ought to be. And this ought to be followed by him trying to pick up the downtrodden scar-faced girl to his left…

  11. Seriously. When has anyone in a band ever cared what the bass player said?

    Comment by Everyone Else In The Band — April 27, 2010 @ 9:46 am

  12. @11

    Yeah, this pretty much follows on from my comment in the previous thread. Unless you’re a Geddy Lee or Les Claypool type, bassplayers are highly replaceable.

    Just to put a contradictory anecdote out there however: One time, I (a bass player) was put in charge of kicking a singer out of the band. His problem was poor performance due to doing too much acid rather than playing too much baseball. So, that would be at least one time where someone in a band cared about what the bassplayer said. And, now you know – the rest of the story…

  13. “Ease Up” returns! Looking forward to the next post on here…
