Interview: Pennywise – “Do What Makes You Happy And Fuck The Rest”
As promised, here’s part 2 of our interview with Fletcher Dragge and Randy Bradbury from Pennywise, who found time to get their Music Feeds on and chat to us amongst the chaos of their 25th anniversary tour.
Our favourite Hermosa Beach punks have had a pretty tumultuous history but are back together with their original singer, Jim Lindberg, and still full of that same pissed-off energy that’s kept them relevant for over 2 decades.
In the second part of our interview, the guys tell us about making the music they love rather than following trends, how they deal with getting slammed by critics, and why no one wants to hear a Pennywise reggae band. Fletcher also lets us in on his sensitive side – whooda thunk he loves the film Little Miss Sunshine? – and tells us about some rather exciting plans for a Pennywise 25th anniversary boxset that could contain hundreds of unreleased songs.
