The Fucking Champs Fucking Tour

I wonder what The Fucking Champs say when their parents ask what their band is called. Recent addition Phil Manley can technically say Trans Am, in which he does double duty, and Tim Green can (and does) very easily pull the “Shut up, mom, I was in Nation of Ulysses and I can do whatever I want” routine. With the recent release of VI on Drag City, though, drummer Tim Soete is going to have some explaining to do. For him, I have compiled a list of excuses:

“I’m holding the Fucking for a friend.”

“The older kids named it. They’re in college. You don’t know them.”

“I learned it from you, dad.”

“When kids say ‘bad,’ they mean ‘good.’ When kids say ‘fucking,’ they mean ‘bad.’ ”

“My dog ate it.”

“That says ‘The Cramps.’ I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Fortunately, the band are skipping town before Soete gets grounded:
