Dr. Gangrene is interviewing the people of THE HORROR HOOTENANY.
13 Questions each.
Today's victim is HANDSOME JIMMY from The CREEPING CRUDS
1. Name and weapon of choice in the band:
Handsome Jimmy, low-end guitar with 4 strings and those turny things on top for decoration.
2. Favorite movie monster?
Gojirrrrrraaaaa!!! Hands down; best movie monster ever.
3. Best horror movie you've seen recently?
The one with the guy who finds that thing but it’s like totally possessed or possibly broken and he’s all like “I gotta get rid of this thing” but he can’t just throw it out cuz he like totally lives near a daycare or nuclear waste dump or something so he tries to sell it and then some kid spills water on it and the devil comes out and he’s all like “uh-oh” so he fights the demon-thing with like a broom handle and a flame-thrower and then he accidentally burns down a church and his whole family gets cursed except for the one kid who is like adopted or something and that kid turns in to a mutant and fights spider-man. I think Bill Pullman was in it, or maybe Bill Paxton.
4. Remakes: Yes or No?
Yes, please. Just keep going until you get it right.
5. What bands inspired you to play music?
Led Zeppelin, New York Dolls, The Moviees, Beau Brummelstones, the Mosquitoes
6. What do you like to do when not playing music?
Rescue orphans from fires, help old ladies cross the street, eat pizza, watch videos of people getting hit in the nuts.
7. Munsters or Addams Family?
8. Favorite song to play live?
Now that it’s back, “I sold my Brain” is classic Jeano material. Dood’s a genius. No question.

Anytime McNasty falls onstage, hilarious!

Cramps baby!!! Also, the Ramones.
11. Pet peeves?
People who pick two things from a list of three things.
12. Favorite Halloween memory?
Where I grew up, it was either really beautiful out, or there was a blizzard.
Every other year. So, I guess I have great memories of every other Halloween. Trick or treating in your snowsuit was awful. No one could see how scary my clown costume was. Also, there was one year when four kids in my subdivision were murdered by Satanists. That was fun too.
13. What would you like to have written on your tombstone when all is said and done?
“Look out! He’s behind you!” I’m kidding, no one should ever spend money on a tombstone.
