Chris was in No Use For A Name and the gimmes.
Nate was in Sunny Day Real Estate
Pat the Germs
Rami the Wallflowers
And discounting Nirvana because obviously they were huge. So let's say Scream for Dave.
Who was your favourite pre Foo band for the guys?
Apart from Nirvana?
The Gimmes. Listening to them right now.
You heard them?
Nah I'm just being a shitcunt. Though I have a vague memory of Marko playing my friends and I a short clip when he was in town with Bad Astronaut.
In all seriousness, probably the Germs. My hair was blue for like 10 years because of the Germs circle one logo. Otherwise Gimmes, but my brain doesn't register it as Chris's gig.
Also, Chris was in Lagwagon as a touring member for a hot minute so I'mma also go with Lagwagon.
Yeah I know what you mean about the gimmes. It's a shame that it now seems like there is some sort of bad blood with Chris and the gimmes.
I must admit I've never listened to The Germs. I should as I imagine in the world of streaming it's easy now.
For me it's Scream but probably more for Pete Stahl than Dave's contribution to them. I also love Goatsnake, Wool & The Earthlings
I asked Scott what the deal was there and he literally just pretended that I didn't ask the question. Lagwagon will be here soon, I'll see what I can weasel outta Caper then 😆
They cancelled their UK tour last year.
Germs or Gimmies. ❤️
Anyway, the only thing I was familiar with is Wallflowers, I really liked their singles.
I never heard SDRE, they were totally ignored in Mexico so I only downloaded a handful of songs after investigating a bit of Nate after FF. I think they're more my jam than Wallflowers.
First SDRE album is fantastic.
I would say Chris for most bands i like pre-Foo with the Gimmes and No Use For A Name . You can avoid Nirvana all you want but sorry Nirvana for the win though. 🤣
