Published Jun 12, 2013For the latest interview on Exclaim! TV's punk program, No Future, we met up with cover band and supergroup Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. The group has been putting a punk spin on classic tracks for nearly twenty years.
During their stop in Toronto on their most recent tour, we spoke with lead singer Spike Slawson, also of Filthy Thieving Bastards and Re-Volts, about his mailroom origins, the band's evolving processes, the thrill of playing live and singing in other languages.
