Fred Fagbag's interview with Jimmy Snotball of Alantic Denture Clinic. Jimmy Snotball has been ADC's lead guitarist for three years now. Date 2-13-90 Transcribed 2-16-90 FG: Jimmy, the first thing everone seems to ask is how you got the name of the band. JS: Well, we really started out with the name Cracker Frost, which was a parody of the band Celtic Forst. They were so horrible that we did a couple of songs as spoofs and they caught on. We changed to Atlantic Denture Clinic because we felt we had established an identity of our own. The actual name came from the place that our lead singer got his teeth at after they got knocked out during a show in a little club in Tampa. FG: Many people in the local area have objected strongly to your music saying that it is full of hate and that your shows are always very destructive and lead to violence afterwards. How do you respond to this? JS: I think that we're really getting a bum rap of this one. It's true that many of our songs could be considered as full of hate if you were to take them as literal statements, but anyone who has been a fan of ours for long knows we're really making a joke in everything we sing. I mean, how serious can you be when you're writing songs about little midgets raping dogs, huh? FG: Where do you get the ideas for your songs; do you have any particular influences? JS: Our crotches, more often than anything. If we think with our crotches we have quite a large potential audience. No, just kidding. Really we just look at what seems most pompous or insane around us in the world and carry it to the extreme limits in our lyrics. FG: Before you started your first set tonight I thought I heard some talent while you were tuning up. Why doesn't this show in your normal music? JS: Because if we started producing decent music to go with the awful lyrics it would ruin the whole effect. Trust me, we'd lose quite a few of our fans. FG: From what I've heard, you wouldn't mind losing some of your fans. Care to tell us what happened to your lead singer at Einstein's? JS: Okay... Einstein's is a club we played in St. Augustine not too long ago, I think it was about two weeks. Anyway, someone bit Mr. Rottencrotch in the middle of a set and he pulled down his zipper and pissed all over the guy. A big fight got started and before it was all over there were about 23 arrests made and we had to go bail our misguided and easily angered lead singer out of the St. Johns County Jail. He was real pissed because the cops beat the shit out of him so he ahhh... (Mr. Snotball's face colored a bit at this point) defecated in the patrol car. FG: I take it this wasn't very well received. JS: No, they really pounded him good for that. He ended up getting six stiches across his eyebrow and his nose got broken. FG: Is it true you sent a copy of your last album, "Yum!" to the PMRC for review and to see what they would rate it. JS: Yes, in fact we dedicated it to the PMRC for their fine efforts in attempting to restrict artistic freedom. FG: What was their response? JS: They are threatening court action for putting the name of their organazation on the liner. Also, they're trying to get their local federal attorney to press obscenity charges on us for sending it through the mail. Their most fervent objection was to our song "Analsoreus Rex". FG: The crowd tonight seemed to like that most out of the songs you did tonight. Why do you think that is? JS: Well, it probably has to do with the fact that it is one of the songs we have put the most work into. That and it's unique lyrics. FG: Some people believe that you are actually promoting the type of activities that you sing about, such as anal intercourse with a dog in "Analsoreus Rex". JS: Well, you said it I didn't. Ha! Don't you hate that kind of answer? It really tells you nothing. But I will say this, to my knowledge, and my fervent hopes, none of us has every had sex with any species aside from Homo Sapien. FG: I assume the same can be said for songs of yours such as "Fuck Something Dead", "Cut You Into Little Pieces" and "Old Black Catholic Magic", right? JS: Most assuredly. FG: One last question, what does the future hold for ADC and what can we expect from you in the future? JS: Now you're asking me to tell fortunes also! Well, our new album is due out in about 2 months, providing we can get the funds. It's really up in the air as to the title and final contents but it looks like it's going to have about eleven cuts and right now we're calling it "Road Kill Rednecks". Not very original, but it's just a working title. As to what the future holds for us? Well, we plan on publishing our own stuff, just like always. We don't want to sell out to someone else's idea of what our music SHOULD be, you know? Oh, and we're probably going to be doing a small tour in Florida and Georgia in the alternative clubs, what few there are, about three months from now to play some of the stuff from "Roadkill".
