Just recently i was working on a production line in a factory assembling Apple computers - your usual crappy dropout job, you know the kind. About once every four people, they had a speaker suspended from the scaffolding that lies about ten feet over ones head, all over the factory. So all day we'd listen to the radio, and more often than not, to the oldies stations. Man, there's so many songs you forget about, like "Pretty in Pink" or "Is She Really Going Out With Him". My favorite (probably by virtue of their not playing it every day like everything else) was Billy Joel's "The Longest Time". I'm a sucker for harmonies, and anything vaguely Doo-Wop sends me into fricken convulsions, that, married with Joel's songwriting skills, make this tune an all time classic. So week after week this song is my aural highlight as far as work goes, worth wading through hours of bad chat and the freaken Darkness to hear this one gem. Eventually i bite the bullet and send off for the greatest hits, adding a few assorted bits and bobs along the way.
So anyways, I'm checking my post one day and the package arrives including the Joel Hits, some Clash, and the New Gimmie Gimmies. Scanning the back of the Gimmie Gimmies i see a few tracks that whet my appetite, Heart of Glass and Strawberry Fields among them. I mean heck, even lame Me first albums have a few hits. And then i see it: Track 09 - The Longest Time. Now, i don't know about you, but that's some voodoo stuff right there. I know Simon Cowell goes to Karaoke bars to pick songs for his talentless Satan spawned minions to cover, but now it seems Mike and Co are scanning Irish radio.
Anyways, i cue the beast up, and after a short burst of our very own Suspect Device (this is getting freaky yo) we hit it. And damn do they hit it.

You all know the deal with live albums. You're lucky to find one that isn't either a contractual obligation or a ninety-minute session of fret-board onanism. If you're truly cursed you might stumble across one that is both, which is where Me First And The Gimme Gimmes intervene.
Never followers of convention, the self proclaimed 'greatest punk cover band in the world' have not only pulled off a coup of live album quality, but have done it in the most unlikely of settings... a brave young fan's passage to manhood, his Bar Mitzvah! Led by neo punk legend Fat Mike, the Gimme Gimmes here race through a gloriously riotous set of 'brand new' cover versions, no doubt delighting (or horrifying!) the guests gathered for Jonny's big day.
Among the tracks given the MFATGG re-imagination are Blondie's Heart Of Glass, Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven and The Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever, even Hava Nagila is given the treatment... to the tune of Felix Navidaz! Although it sounds like it was recorded in a tiny function room, no wait, it WAS recorded in a tiny function room; there is a hugely infectious energy ready to catch you off-guard and that is the genius of the Gimme Gimmes. They may not play any of their own tunes but they infuse everything they do with a tongue in cheek charm and vigour that makes the tunes recognisable but instantly the newly acquired property of the band. Blitzing through their set but never losing any of their studio tightness, MFATGG may well be the new family function phenomena, and I'll bet those gathered never knew being Jewish could be so much fun.
