On today’s Kyle Meredith With…, Greg Attonito of The Bouncing Souls talks about their new EP and book, Crucial Moments, namely how the writing on both the songs and pages were influenced by the band’s early days. He also discusses how their cover of The Waitresses’ “I Know What Boys Like” pushes the envelope, why they didn’t want to be a punk band with only guys attending their shows, and why they used to hate Blink-182, which he jokingly calls “Lowest Common Denominator music” a few times.
