Biscuits and z worked together in a self destructing project called Johnny Crackeye. Biscuits is currently also drinking and pounding instruments with The Poonanies. Joey Warbucks feels that the best part of masturbation is that you can be in any band you want.

7. Are you all in the process of recording an album or touring?

We recorded a demo in two hours which makes us the only bad that can record a tape faster than we can tune our instruments. As far as playing live, Vote Quimby is currently on hold right now as Biscuits and Joey Warbucks are pursuing a long aspired project of touring the mystical rolling hills of rural england stopping from cattle grid to cattle grid serenading the cows with backpacking acoustic guitars.

8. What is your favorite touring experience?

In complete honesty although Vote Quimby boasts that in only four live performances at various venues in Chicago, they have been kicked off the stage twice because he sound guy feared the well being of the microphones and monitors, even though the well being of the band was what should have been a concern. the most memorable experience live concerns our side project in England when a cattle grid of cows stampeded us out of their grid after only three songs. We bear permanent scars from the barbed wire fence.

I’m about to blow my load and i get the best idea to monkeyfuckpunch her which is when i tap on her shoulder and she turns her head only to decked in the face right when I cum. the weird thing is that in the dream, I tap her shoulder, she turns around, but right before my fist smacks her face, I wake up to a god awful hangover.

We are all single and we really do like girls including joe even though he refuses to gander at our porno collections and turns away very attractive girls who follow him in a drunken stupor up to his bedroom.

18. Are you sXe or normal people?

We’re straight edge because we don’t believe in chasers. We like our shit straight. Before every show we have a straightedge ritual in which the four of us drink a bottle of Goldshlaegger cinnamon schnapps before we play.

19. In your concerts, which songs by which bands do you cover?

We really don’t play covers but one time we became so thrilled that our drunken antics had not resulted in our removal from the stage that we played “I live this life” by The Queers.

20. If you had the chance, would you sign on to a major label, or stay independent?

We are constantly searching for the right label, but the major label that has stuck with us is that we’re a bunch of drunk jerks.
