I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Nikki Sudden on a few occasions. The first time was at Union Pool and I admitted to him that Phones B. Sportsman is my all time favorite punk rock name.
He told me the its origin but I was so drunk that I promptly forgot.
I saw this record once at the WFMU record fair for $50. I considered purchasing it but it was a little too rich for my blood at the time.
I am happy to say that I recently acquired it for considerably less than that.
This record is really silly and really awesome. Swell Maps really knew what time it was, etc.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, a single by The Phones Sportsman Band.
