My name is Doug Sakmann. I do a NY zine called “i am an evil carrot”.
Yesterday, after talking to Gavin through AOL, I was able to interview them
after they did the sound check. During the sound check, they played 6 songs,
all of which were new and all equally kicked much ass. During the interview I
was able to find out that next week after they get back to California they are going in the studio to begin recording a new album. During the actual show, they only played like 3-4 new songs, but they still rocked the house. Tramps’ world renouned “trampoline floor” as I like to call it was in full effect. I call it this because when you are in the basement right under the dance floor the celing goes up and down like a trampoline, and when you stand still on the
dance floor when everyone else is jumping you get slightly bounced around. I
always fear that the floor will collapse one of these days. I have to say the
band was very friendly and I had a great time. Some guys from H20, Pilfers,
and Bouncing Souls showed up backstage too. Also for anyone in the NY area,
right after I did the interview, Jason Dean from 92.7 LIR’s Ska show “One Step
Beyond” Did an interview with the girls as well and said it should be on the
air in the next few weeks. The ska show is on sunday nights at 8:30-9:00. I
guess that is all except I LOVE DHC!
if you want a copy of the “i am an evil carrot” zine when it comes out with
DHC , or any other issue, send $2 or $1 and 2 stamps tooo….
