The Lonely M.I.P.

Port Angeleno post-emo classic rockers The Lonely H have the distinction of being Spin.com’s Band of the Day. What, once a week isn’t enough?

Though they’re certainly not the first to nab the magazine’s daily spotlight (geez, just look at all the “the” bands), the local 18-year-olds might be the first to mark their Spin “fun fact” box with a boundary of pee:

Vocalist Mark Fredson got a bit sloshed during a high school dance and opted to relieve himself on the bleachers. The police busted him, and Fredson was issued a citation for Minor in Possession (M.I.P.) and eventually prosecuted on the crime. The case was ultimately dismissed though, as the judge was biased towards The Lonely H’s music. Talk about small town luck!

Hopefully, Spin.com will up the bathroom ante tomorrow by featuring these knuckleheads. In the meantime, click the Band of the Day link for a free MP3 download and a glimpse at The Lonely H’s first music video…that is, if you’d rather not just watch it right here:

I can get behind that...wow, it sounds like (radio) pop punk kids trying really hard. and failing. should I tell them flares and long hair don't count for shit. and whats with the keyboard, real long hairs used hammonds. it really goes to show you can't trust anyone UNDER 30 any longer!
