Last Thursday, Less Than Jake came through Baltimore, and last Wednesday, because their show in Poughkeepsie had been snowed out, JR [far right] from Less Than Jake took some time out to talk to me. Except he ended up taking a lot of time out to talk to me. A lot. So what follows is not just the normal ‘I’m on tour’ stuff, but instead a look inside an experienced band’s member and his views of the road, the [now] defunct Strike Gently, and why he think Justin Bieber is punk. Seriously.
It’s early in the tour, but there’s no name for the tour, is there?
Yea, it’s a no name tour. We’ve been calling it the no-name tour. That doesn’t happen anymore; nobody gives a carp about these tours with 15 bands on it. We’re Less Than Jake, we’re going on tour, come find us.
