ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES: Have another Ball: CD

Oct 02, 2008

Are they really up to their seventh full length? Tenth anniversary of their debut? Damn! I’m getting old and time is flying. I remember buying the Have a Ball LP on a visit to San Francisco the year it came out. We heard it on the radio up there and immediately I went looking for it. I’m a covers geek if it is done well. They do it well. Interesting fact I learned is that these songs are from the same session as the debut and the debut was supposed to be a double LP, but they nixed it. So these songs were shelved and I think some made it out of the vault to be on some singles. The singles are a whole different ball game that I haven’t participated that much in. So cover songs are the focus and these fine chaps are the best at making any song into a pop punk classic. After the first listen, my wife asked to borrow the CD. I don’t think I’m getting it back anytime soon.
