silentbob If you take a name like Guttermouth, you'd guess that a band with such a name probably acts kind of rude and obnoxious and speaks with the eloquence and tact of a drunk truck driver. You'd be right on the ball if you were talking about this band.

Guttermouth, another Southern California export, is a five-piece band where band members basically made their reputation with their totally un-P.C. observations on life and a fun spirit that recalls the beginnings of punk, when bands weren't careful about what they said and weren't out to impress anyone. Vocalist Mark "Half-Empty" Adkins, guitarist Eric Davis, drummer Capt. James T. Nunn, guitarist Mr. Scott Sheldon and bassist Steve Rapp fuse the intensity of hyper-speed punk music with the lyrics and rhyming schemes of a bathroom stall wall.

Members of Guttermouth challenge any norm which music audiences may expect.
"We do write very juvenile," Adkins said in a recent phone interview. "We know it, but that's how we write. We don't put too much thought into it ... We clown around; it's non-stop."

During the span of seven years and four full-length records, Guttermouth's made at least a few jaws drop. Even the band's latest record, "Musical Monkey," is chock full of more words of wisdom including a commentary on how punkers take themselves too seriously ("Baker's Dozen").

"When I first got into this punk stuff at 14, there was punk ... not like today's hardcore who all have their little rulebooks and dress codes and whatever ... - weird New York stuff," Adkins said. "The hardcore bands were the ones that were way more aggressive like BlackFlag and the DeadKennedys ... everyone was the same."

"Now it's so separated. It's kinda bothersome that everyone has to have their own genre of music and claim they're from a certain area."

Adkins particularly can't understand the whole concept of straight-edge. "They're not getting anything accomplished, No. 1. And they all grow out of it, number two," Adkins said.

"My parents, they were totally down for their stuff but they grew out of it. Everybody does. They try to change everything while they're young, then they graduate from college or whatever, get married, buy a house, and forget about everything. I think we're one of the few bands that sees that. We're more like realists."

Another song, "Abort Mission," deals with vegans. The band photo on "Musical Monkey" is even a hamburger. "It's the best tour food. I eat two or three a day, and we've gotten into it with vegan and vegetarian bands before, actually fistfights and stuff because our diets didn't match and they get really upset about it."

Guttermouth's careful about where it plays, too. "They could send us to Casper, Wyoming, but 10cowboys are going to show up and vandalize your car, which happened to us in a small town in Texas before, where we didn't belong ... it was really ugly," Adkins said.

So, as you can see, the boys are just making friends all over the place. And this new found popularity going to make Guttermouth as big as the Spice Girls, correct? Not if Adkins is right: "You need good looks and talent. One more strike and we're definitely out."

Guttermouth might not make the Top 20, but it will make you chuckle. Check the band out, along with old school jokesters Toy Dolls and Detroit's own favorite ska outfit, Telegraph. Have a blast, have a beer and get a preview of the new Guttermouth live album, due to be released in a couple of months.

You know what pisses me off more then anything?
Is all these people who aren't exactally politically correct.
Like, the other day I was walking my "Sibierian American Huskies"
I mean how canines are, they like to sniff everything, including each others butts.
And some guy walks up to me and says
"Man, get your dogs ass, outta that other dog nose."
So I replied "How dare you call them dogs? They're "Siberian American Huskies"
(the next few lines are left out as not to offend)
It pissed me off so bad, I got a nose ring, dyed my hair blue, and moved to San Francisco.
