Interview: Drinkin' Cokes with Perry
By Matt Garlick
The first time I encountered the surf punking, nacho loving, Renaissance man that is Perry Shall, it was on a Screaming Females blog post. It was a drawing of Perry sitting on a plane, cracking open a Coke (his favorite soda), and drooling at the mouth with flies swarming around him and saying, “Do they serve nachos on dis flight?” That image stayed in my mind for quite sometime. Then I saw Perry’s name pop up on another one of my favorite band’s blogs, Jeff The Brotherhood. All the post said was “PERRY IZ ON TOUR WITH US,” which was followed by three photos of the man himself. Soon I started seeing Perry’s name come up more and more, whether it was through the Jeff The Brotherhood’s twitter, Evil Weevil’s site, or general onlinery. I wanted to find out what made him so special, what made all these bands that I loved like him so much, so when I found out that Perry was with Jeff The Brotherhood for their We Are The Champions tour, which he did the album art for, and that they were playing Nashville when I was going to be there, I just had to meet him.
