That drunk guy at the bar recently wrote an interview/review of Sexy Teenagers for Rochester Insomniac, a local online punk rock revelry rag, mostly followed for their weekly podcast interviewing local artists.
You can find it here.
Oooh where to start.
Well, here’s an excerpt of the very beginning of the story, “Sexy Teenagers are a pop punk band more importantly they are a really group of guys to party with. We sat down with a the group in an attempt to do an interview and just talked about getting drunk. So with out further ado, Sexys Teenager’s drunk stories.”
…ouch. Oh the wincing I do reading that. More importantly the embarrasment I feel for the boys over the interview. While talking about drinking and drugs and flashing your punk rock credentials is all well and good, there is a line that needs to be walked. The line of which I speak is common sense I guess. Some things just don’t look good for not only the band, but the publication. Not to mention making anyone look bad is a surefire way to deter future interviews.
The stories are great, I won’t deny that, but I think they’re better when saved for in person moments at the bar, little stories between friends and fans that can get passed along, not advertised like all they do is drink and not give a fuck.
