Commoditiebooking: So how long have you been playing together? How did the three of you meet?Guantanamo Baywatch: we’ve been playing with each other for maybe 3 1/2 yrs. we met thru match.com. now we dont even like each other, and just fight all the time. chris and chevelle are always putting dong and pussy hairs on each other. i just get sick in the back of the van.

GB: jurrasic park, big dongz, will smith (in florida)
CB: What’s up with the naked dinosaur girl on the cover of “Chest Crawl”?
GB: she’s an inguana. like a ninja turtle sexy bad guy. our first tape had a cover that was the same as the cover of john waters “shock value” but instead of a flamingo, it was like this bebop iguana. we took a copy to his house in baltimore and left it in a pizza box on his door step with a gatorade bottle of tar from labrea.
CB: Is anyone in GB in other bands?
GB: chrissy valentine is in BOOM!, chevy is in Fartsy and the Globs and i dont do anything.
CB: The “Whoa Babes” video reminds me of a John Waters movie or Pee Wee’s Big Adventure,something like that. Who directed/wrote that video? What type of meat is in the bathroom?
GB: that thing is a cinibunz, and i didn’t know that girl and i really 8 that thing off her pussy off of that toilet seat.
CB: Has GB played Florida before?
GB: naw, but were stoked.
