Exclusive interview with The Poison Control Center

In the interest of full disclosure, let me mention that I’ve known singer/guitarist Patrick Tape-Fleming since 2007. We’ve never hung out, and I never really listened to much Poison Control Center before this past week. He did give me and Kari a discount at a fitness center, but it’s the same price I would have paid if I were 65. And let’s face it, physically I’m in no better shape than most 65 year old men.
Sitting down with all four members of the band, you get a real sense of this band being a group of guys that love being around each other and making music together. They’re sense of community in Des Moines is astonishing. The city is lucky to have them, and it’s a loss to Chicago that they’ll never leave.
In this interview we discuss switching drummers, Casper and the Cookies, Dave’s hatred of the Beatle’s, and j almost get them to give us a scoop on the 80/35 festival happening 4th of July weekend.


About joshterzino

Thank you, Chicago. Your population is as kind and warmhearted as I could hope for in a metropolis. The music, the food, the parks...it's everything a person could possibly want in a city they call home. I will forever be in your debt, Chicago. Let me know if you ever need anything.
