Since 1987, The Bouncing Souls have been making an uncompromising brand of punk rock. At the 2004 DIY Convention@CMJ, Jersey Beat’s Jim Testa asked lead singer Greg Attonito to explain the secrets of the band’s long-lived success in the event’s keynote one-on-one conversation….
GA: Greg Attonito
JM: Jim Testa
JT: I give you our keynote speaker now, who probably needs no introduction. This gentleman, who I’ve known for a long time, and his band have produced eight full length albums, six EP’s, three split EP’s, and more 7 inches and compilation cuts that either one of us could keep track of. They just played last night at BB King’s, a sold out show. Ladies and gentlemen, Greg Attonito from the Bouncing Souls. (applause)
