Drunk 'n' Pukin'

Drunkin Punkin Idiots bassist James Herrault says his band and the Gizzards chartered a bus on February 17 to take fans to one of their Orange County shows. For $20, bus riders got admission into the club and an open-bar round-trip ride.

"It was all the beer you could drink, and there was definitely a lot of drug use on the drive up, so the bus driver, he's, like, 75 years old and just wearing earplugs and trying to pretend he's somewhere else," says Herrault. "Every seat was taken. I think we went through about 250 Bud Lights, plus a bunch of bottles of Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam. People were passed out everywhere." The band paid $850 for the charter and reports a "small profit."

Regarding their gig at Lake Forest's Gypsy Lounge, Herrault says, "The O.C. crew was kind of lame; they really weren't into the San Diego bands. At one point, the singer from the Gizzards...told everyone from Orange County to fuck off and dedicated a song to them called 'Why Don't You Just Go Commit Suicide?' Then he started gagging himself with his finger down his throat and puking all over the stage, like, five good hurls." Drunkin Punkin Idiots and the Gizzards appear March 8 at Winstons.
