Description

What if you really REALLY loved your part time job? …but, what if it didn’t pay enough? Well then you may be in Wheatus. It’s a special time for music. Not too much of it sticks and when it does well, it usually isn’t everyone’s cuppa. “…we really don’t run into people who don’t like Dirtbag, including us”, Wheatus frontman, producer, songwriter Brendan Brown quotes, whilst fiddling with a vacuum tube that reads “Made In West Germany”. It seems that Wheatus do indeed still love playing their multi-­‐ platinum, ubiquitous 2001 classic, “Teenage Dirtbag”. “I grew up idolizing Rush & AC/DC. Bands that last forever…One of the fears I had when “Dirtbag “kicked off was that it would get old quick or be received as a fad…I was wrong to worry about that. It feels new every night. I think that’s because it’s hard to play correctly, but what the hell do I know?” It has not been an easy go for Brown & crew. They scrape recording & touring budgets together by selling last year’s gear on ebay. “It’s an interesting paradox that people won’t buy music but they still buy the stuff to make it and that we can carry on that way…together, we found a way forward. I still can’t believe it started 15 years ago though…that’s hard to imagine for a song that continues to be renewed.
