Filthy Thieving Bastards

Interviews | May 5th, 2007

What’s the worst interview question to ask a band?
This question right here.

How did the Filthy Thieving Bastards get together? Please explain in a Haiku.
Don’t know what a Haiku is. We met through the gay porn industry. You got a problem with that, motherfucker?

Your new album “I’m a Son of a Gun” was just released. Could you help me out and review the album for me? I’m too lazy.
It’s tripindicular.

Spider Stacy of the Pogues has played on a few albums and played with the band live. How did you convince him to work with you guys?
A bank load of money that we don’t have. Jokes on him.

What does Shane MacGowan think of the band? If he never heard your music, what do you think he would say?
I’m not sure if he heard of us or not. He would probably laugh like Snaggletooth.

Does the band have a man-crush on Jack Dalrymple?
Of course, who doesn’t.

What was the worst show you’ve ever played?
Lake Havasu?

It has been a few years since the Swingin’ Utters released a new album. Are there any plans to record this year?
Yes, there is a plan, but we’ll see what comes of it.

Will the Filthy Thieving Bastards ever play outside of California and tour the east coast for a change?
We would love to. Pay my mortgage so we can.

The Irish-punk thing has lost some momentum. What do you think will be the next big fad in punk?
Americans with Irish blood are the only ones dumb enough to make it a fad. So, maybe it will gain momentum in a week or so. Follow closely.

What’s a funny word that makes you giggle?
Dicktits. That’s not a word, but a wonderful insult used by yours truly. Patent pending, patent pending, patent pending.

The Filthy Thieving Bastards new album “I’m a Son of a Gun” is out now on BYO Records. Visit their MySpace page for more details: here
