Dave Patino played in NJ bands The Jerkoffs, my band Lanemeyer, and with Day At The Fair when they get together at the Stan Hope house every so often and play shows. He now does photography so hire him. I told Dave that he was going to talk to me and since I am stronger than him he obviously said yes. Here is what we talk about: The Police (the band) The NJ hot spot, Obsessions Fucking with our hair as kids Going to Berkeley School of Music Creating a recording studio in his basement Working at the Hot Topic in the Rockaway Mall How cliquey we were in the scene How the Jerkoffs really broke up Recording Houseboy Lanemeyer and Lounge getting chased by rednecks in Kentucky Writing my song Energy The super annoying guy who wanted to sign Lanemeyer Trying out for Ari from Lifetime’s band Zero Zero And a ton more Before we begin, this week’s episode is sponsored by my animation company drive 80 studios.
