The Ponys: The Rhapsody Interview (Exclusive)

The Ponys: The Rhapsody Interview by The Ponys
Released: Aug 2007
Label: RealNetworks
Right before getting ready to go out on tour with Spoon, Pony's founder Jered Gummere told us the importance of a roomy van -- mostly because he's 6'5", same as Joey Ramone. But that's where the similarity ends; instead, these Chicago's natives are more akin to the Velvet Underground and the Liars than the first wave punk avatars. But they do have a DYI ethic, getting signed after Jered sang appalling karaoke with Red Records label head in LA after downing quite a few tequila shots. Now on Matador Records, the band hasn't cleaned up their act -- and that's a very good thing. Listen to Gummere tell Rhapsody editor Ian Mackinnon about lubricants, inebriants and his girlfriend and bandmember Melissa Elias.
