Hat Party Signs to Bonertown! Records:
an expert from Bonertown!’s myspace.
(also, I don’t know who Flanny Doid is, he is not a member of Hat Party)
BT: How long have you guys been playing?
Flanny Doid: Uh, we haven’t played yet. We have a show on June 27th at Watch yr Head.
BT: Does this present a problem?
Flanny Doid: (taking a moment) We’ve been together for four years. I think that says a lot about how ready we are for this event.
BT: Volumes. You don’t have any recordings of your music yet, why did you approach Bonertown! ?
Flanny Doid: We really like the principals and ethics behind Bonertown! Records. It’s going back to freedom. Not like Republican, American freedom with fangorious eagles and flags, but a universal sort of freedom where you can be real. Best of all Bonertown! is in the “A”. Where it belongs. Where Hat Party belongs. It just fits.
BT: Bonertown! is definitely in the “A”. Where do you see this new partnership taking you?
Flanny Doid: Right here. I mean this is where it is. There is an uncertainty of what will happen next, or if there will even be a next to go to. That is why we are throwing the Hat Party. Be happy in the moment kind of thing. Our music greatly illustrates this point. Are you guys coming to the show?
BT: I have to work, but hopefully we will have someone there to record it. If we get our shit together we’ll use this as your first release. Do you guys have someone who can record it?
Flanny Doid: That would require planning which kind of takes away from what we’re going for. I’m willing to bet that someone will capture the event on some sort of media like a cell phone or something. This will suit us just fine for a first release, and in a way represent the ideas I stated just a moment ago. If not we’ll just have to wait for it to occur naturally.
BT: Does it matter if Bonertown! plans ahead to record it?
Flanny Doid: No, becouse thats you guyses thing. We’re just ganna be there throwing a hat party.
BT: What about you approching Bonertown!, isn’t that sort of planning?
Flanny Doid: I see what you’re getting at and it’s not really appreciated. We are throwing a fucking Hat Party, if you want to come, you have been invited.
BT: Why not invite someone who will record it?
Flanny Doid: This invitation is extended to everyone. If someone feels like recording it, they will.
BT: So you are planning?
Flanny Doid: This is kind of reminding me of a vegan getting shit from some fat fuck about eating something entirely vegan at Taco Bell. So what if the money is still going to a corporation that supports the meat industry. That person is still exercising their beliefs. It’s not like he has to exile himself from his friends who decided to eat at Taco Bell that day. His friends still see him not eating meat, that’s where the statement is spoken.
BT: But it speaks to them also that that person dosen’t mind supporting the meat industry after all, its like a phonny image thing.
Flanny doid: I don’t fucking believe this! You are that guy!
BT: Just calling it like I see it.
Flanny Doid: (pause) I’m not sure I want to be on this lable.
BT: Are you serious? Do you think anyone else would sign your band?
Flanny Doid: Thats not important to me, I have my “principals”. You wouldn’t understand that sort of thing. You just want to be right all the time… Like my fucking parents. You can stuff this label up your ass where it belongs.
BT: You mean in the “A”?
Flanny Doid: (laughing) Yes, oh my God, yes… That is fucking awesome!
BT: We’re signing you! I don’t care if you hate us, your perfect! By the means that you are flawed, you are perfect! Welcome to Bonertown! Records.
Flanny Doid: (thousand yard stare - pauses) Uh, o.k. (keeps laughing)
