"The Story of a Pop Punk Poser Sellout"

Posted by: Jason Tate (04/19/14)
Josh Chambers, formerly of The Sloppy Meateaters, is working on a documentary about the band. He's looking for people to interview for the documentary and you can read the message from Josh below.
"Fruitless Misadventures: The Story of a Pop Punk Poser Sellout" is the story of the DIY southern pop punk band the sloppy meateaters. 10 years, 13 tours, 5 albums, 100s of songs, from shows in the living room to the Warped Tour SME roamed the Earth for nearly a decade before admitting defeat & calling it quits in 2007. When asked to define a warped tour band Kevin Lyman said, the sloppy meateaters. If you would like to be interviewed on Skype for the documentary please get in touch ASAP, poppunkposersellout@gmail.com I'm looking for other bands we played with, fans, promoters, fanzines, college & internet radio hosts, haters, stalkers, and all other burnt bridges. I have logged 1000s of hours of editing for over 3 years & it will be 100% free and already has over 30 people narrating the bizarre story in their own words. SME was around during the first year of Absolutepunk.net so I thought it only reasonable to spread the word here. I have Lee Camp, Jack Blood, Cobra Starship, InCircles, The Wild, Harvard PhDs, porn stars junkies, and everything in between. This is not a happy ending fairy tale it's more like a realistic look at the DIY pop punk scene from 1996-2006.

I am trying to remember when I first heard of the band - I wanna say it was some TV thing or something.

2 of my old band members saw SME, and then our band played with them, in Columbus. Midgard Comics and The Billiard Club, respectively.

Jason Tate, you were probably watching the TV show Farmclub TV waiting for MXPX. That was 14 years ago. When I'm almost finished with the editing I'm going to reach out to Kevin Lyman since he used SME to describe the DIY type of band that best described Warped Tour. You should join that VIP last minute interview list. 10 minutes on Skype in 3 or 4 weeks. You can roast or casually dismiss SME, doesn't matter. whatever is truthful. The DIY bands devouring the record industry via the internet is one of the main themes and AP was very much a spear head of that attack whether you are proud of that fact or not (you should be proud)

ChewBacca: I remember Midgard. email me poppunkposersellout@gmail.com

HOLY SHIT! This can't be the same Sloppy Meateaters that was on the Razor Freestyle Scooter game soundtrack, can it? That was my favourite game when I was 6-7 years old. Fucking hell.

One and the same. Check out their final release, "Conditioned by the Laugh Track" from 2005. Way ahead of it's time.
