BEST FRIDAYS: with Damian Abraham of Fucked Up
Posted on November 7, 2008 by Sam Sutherland
What’s Worst Mondays without a dark and villainous foil? That’s the kind of thinking that forced us to create Best Fridays. So for all our weekend warrior brethren: Wooooo, T-G-I-F, right? Herein we hope to bookend your awful week by quizzing our previous Worst Mondays candidate about slightly more encouraging things. Every Friday!
My mom gets bummed every time I talk about this band. Which is too bad, because my mom is otherwise a huge fan of Poison Idea-inspired progressive hardcore.
Damian is so friendly. But look how angry he is in this photo! He’s probably yelling about hating cops. Man, Fucked Up are a great band. Have you bought their new record yet? If you like music, you’ll probably think it’s good.
I have an insane scar from a pint glass being crushed in my head.
Best historical figure
Carl Panzram. Scary as all get out.
My Scooby Records “Jesus Should Have Been Aborted” shirt. So offensive that it is actually kinda stupid.
Best thing to do with $20
Buy records and fast food… or a slurpee… or a book. Actually can I borrow some of your $20?
Best party trick
I’m a pretty bad ass yo-yoer.
See question #2. Or Candyman.
Best question ever asked of you in an interview. Now answer it:
One time a guy asked me if we were worth our guarantee. Another time we were asked if Feist and Cat Power were the same person.
