Anyway, back on topic( ), the femmes are responsible for two of my favourite bits of trivia.
Firstly, Gordon Gano, lead singer of the Femmes, used to come to school every Monday dressed in his pijamas ("What, you mean I got out of bed for this?"). I lovde that idea so much, I tried it out one year (didn't go down real well, needless to say).
The other is that he was once suspended from school for singing Gimme The Car. I think the principal didn't like the lyrics:
I tell’ya what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna pick her up
I’m gonna get her drunk
I’m gonna make her cry
I’m gonna get her high
I can't imagine having the guts to sing that song at asembly in front of the whole school!
