WHEN: In 1997 the Gimme Gimmes released a handful of 7 s on various labels before releasing their first full length, Have a Ball. No one could’ve predicted the success to which that album was received, nor could anyone explain the phenomenon that swept the punk scene. Two years later in 1999, the Gimme Gimmes returned with their second record Are a Drag. On this album, the Gimmes took on the task of covering show tunes and punk-a-fying them. Needless to say it was a success as they did everything from Grease to Annie to Evita. WHERE: These boys are from San Francisco of course, a town that encourages both progressive thought and crossdressing.
In July 1997 Me First and Gimme Gimmes released their first full-length album entitled Have A Ball. The album featured covers of artists such as Elton John, Neil Diamond, and John Denver. Their second album, Are A Drag, had the theme of being entirely made up of showtunes. As with each of their albums they released, their live shows would have a gimmick of wearing quirky matching costumes, sometimes even matching their album themes. In 2006 the group released their sixth album, Love Their Country which had a country western theme. A year later they released a sampler of Christmas songs,.
