Animal Chin was an interesting group. Arguably in the top five 90s ska-punk groups. They influenced Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Jeff Rosenstock, and Barry Johnson (Joyce Manor). And yet, they were one of the lesser-known bands from the 90s ska era. We brought Jamie on the show to discuss, among other things, the classic Animal Chin record All The Kids Agree, which he told us he has a hard time listening to without cringing, even though it’s an AMAZING record, in our opinion, anyway.
We hope that our conversation helped him see the album’s inherent brilliance. We also discussed his non-ska band The Stereo (With The Impossibles’ Rory Phillips). We listen to his stories about Animal Chin taking needless risks changing drivers in the van and not stopping. And we hear about Jamie’s time in a few other bands at the time, most notably The Pacers.
