Me First and the Gimme Gimmes Biography

For the uninitiated, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes consist of Joey Cape  (Lagwagon) on guitar, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) on lead guitar, Dave Raun  (Lagwagon) on the drums, Fat Wreck-head-honcho/NOFX main-dude Fat Mike,  and rounded out by the incomparable crooner, Spike Slawson. Together, Me  First and the Gimme Gimmes are an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular mortal band. 

When duty calls for one of the Gimmes to perform with their other band, rest  assured a traveling Gimme will step in. John Reis, you guessed it, guitarist and  lead vocals for Rocket from the Crypt or Jonny “2 Bags” Wickersham from Social  Distortion will be filling in and on occasion, Jay Bentley from Bad Religion or  maybe CJ Ramone from a little band you may have heard of, The Ramones, will  sub for Fat Mike. Most recently we saw the UK import, Pinch from The Damned,  on the skins. You never know what star-studded lineup you will get at a Gimmes  show, but you know it will not disappoint. 

So, what is really left to say about punk super-group and cover band  extraordinaire Me First and the Gimme Gimmes? After 7 studio albums, a live  record and too many singles to count, they’ve tackled just about every genre  under the sun. Be it Motown, Country, show tunes, Japanese Pop (sung in  Japanese!), these seasoned punk rock pros have triumphed on every occasion  in a way only the Gimmes could. With such an extensive and wide ranging  catalog, where does one begin?... With a live show of course! The powerhouse  continues and they’ll be singing ballads, showtunes, Country and Motown tunes  all year long, so don’t miss it!
