The Spits to Sardinia: Ventrilo-Blower

posted by on June 10 at 11:25 AM

ventriloquist.jpgSeattle punk legend-mainstays the Spits embark this week for Europe to do a three week tour. They are hitting Spain, France, and Sardinia. Sean Spits related his pre-tour thoughts:

Sardinia? Where is Sardinia? How did you guys set that up?
Sean: Itís off the coast of Italy. Weíre big over there. Iím not kidding. Iím not really sure how those shows got set up. Some kind of European booker who likes us.

Are you looking forward to France?
Am I looking forward to France? Yeah. Weíre gonna hit the Loover Museum and look at women with hairy armpits. Is that what you want to hear? Thatís a pretty stupid question, really - am I looking forward to France. Do you think people are interested in whether or not Iím looking forward to going to France?

Fuck you.
Yeah, fuck me.

Talk about your European fans.
They go all out. You know they get ten weeks vacation a year over there? They like their punk. And us having Detroit ties fascinates them. One time we toured, and a hundred or so people rented a bus and followed us around for a week. It was like a week long Euro-rave, but with the Spits.

You rave?
No.

Tell me about your favorite European fan.
There was this guy who came to a few shows who said his wife could give him a blowjob and talk at the same time. He called himself Sam, but I donít think that was his real name. He probably thought we wouldnít be able to pronounce his real name.

So his wife was a ventrilo-blower?
I guess you could say that, yeah. Ventrilo-blower, pretty neat there Sparky.

Hating on the Spits will get you nowhere.
