The Bloodhound Gang Interview By Nowak with Willie The New Guy.

Nowak sits down with Willie the New Guy to find out what kind of weird hazing rituals he was subjected to when he joined The Bloodhound Gang’s. Start scrolling now!

HOORAY FOR BOOBIES CAME OUT IN LIKE 2000. WHY THE HELL HAS IT BEEN 5 YEARS BETWEEN The Bloodhound Gang’s ALBUMS? WHAT HAVE YOU CLOWNS BEEN UP TO?
Maybe you should ask our singer, Jimmy Pop, that question. To be honest with you, it’s just taken so much longer than we had obviously anticipated. The music’s a lot more involved, so I think that might’ve had something to do with it. There’s a lot more sequencing, a lot more instrumentation, things like that. And on top of that, Jimmy Pop went on a nice Valium binge for a while.

SO I GUESS YOU HAD A LOT MORE TO DO ON THIS ALBUM – IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF THE OLDER The Bloodhound Gang’s TRACKS WERE MORE HEAVILY SYNTH-BASED.
Exactly. This is the first record that I recorded with the band. It’s refreshing for me because I don’t have to play someone else’s parts. This is shit that I came up with. I had more of a say in how the songs went; musically, not lyrically – that’s Jimmy’s department. I’m really happy with it. It’s just progressed, I mean, we’ve matured musically, if you can believe that. Just musically, that’s the only way we’ve matured.

WHAT’S The Bloodhound Gang’s CONNECTION WITH BAM MARGERA? I SEE HE’S IN THE NEW VIDEO.
When I was still in Los Angeles, Jimmy Pop, he was the first one to move back. After the last tour, the Boobies tour, he moved back here to Pennsylvania. He got in touch with Bam; it was right around the time that Jackass was getting big. We realized that Bam lived in Westchester, which was about a half hour from where we all lived, and Jimmy Pop realized he had a lot of shit in common with Bam, like the band H.I.M., and things like that. So Jimmy got in touch with him, and they became fast friends, started talking about some projects and things like that, and we’ve been friends with that crew ever since.

ONThe Bloodhound Gang’s WEBSITE, YOU GUYS ALL HAVE THE INDIVIDUAL VOICE-OVER GREETINGS ON THE OPENING PAGE. DOES DJ Q-BALL ALWAYS SOUND LIKE SUCH A YO-BOY  DOUCHEBAG?
Hahaha! Oh Jesus. At the risk of insulting him, yeah sometimes he does. But you know what’s funny? He’s so like “suburban Pennsylvania” that like sometimes comes across so white. Like, “Uhhh… yeah, they used to say that shit back in like ’92”, like after he’d say like “Wuzzzzuuup!”.  But I love him to death, I mean, he’s a great guy. But, you know, that’s his thing. He grew up on hip-hop, still loves it to this day.

AS THE “NEW GUY”, WERE YOU EXPOSED TO ANY KIND OF FUCKED-UP HAZING RITUALS OR ANYTHING WHEN YOU JOINED THE BLOODHOUND GANG?
Yeah, and they still go on to this day to be honest with you. Actually, it began at the auditions. They wanted to me play drums, but they also wanted me to know a lot of Simpsons trivia. They also wanted to see how many hot dogs I could eat, and things like that. Right there I was like, “Oh, man; if I get this gig, I am in trouble.” And sure enough, for the first year or so there were all kinds of shit going on. You know, like I’d get in the shower and they’d dump an entire deli tray into the shower. It sucked, man. And I couldn’t get away from it! You know, I was the new guy at time, so it was kinda like, I guess this is what it’s like, and I gotta put up with this shit. But I’m 31 now, and that shit don’t fly anymore! At 25, I was like, yeah, this is great, let’s have some fun! And now, it’s not that much fun. Bathing in meat is not my idea of fun.

CAN YOU QUICKLY DESCRIBE A DAY IN THE LIFE ON TOUR WITH THE BLOODHOUND GANG?
Let’s see… Well, it starts out in the morning with some morning arguments, because everybody’s pissed off and tired. That lasts about a good hour. Then it’s pretty much drugs and drinking after that. There may be some music thrown in once in a while. Like if we have a show that day, yeah, there may be some music. But it’s pretty much arguing, drinking, and drugs.

YOUR LITTLE VOICE-OVER ON THE BLOODHOUND GANG WEBSITE SAYS “HELLO, I’M WILLIE THE NEW GUY, AND I HAVE DONE A LOT OF DRUGS.” DO YOU STILL DO A LOT OF DRUGS?
No, actually, I’ve narrowed it down. I just smoke a little reefer these days. That’s where I keep it. I don’t drink coffee; I don’t smoke cigarettes, and don’t do any other chemicals. That’s it. That’s the one I seem to have the most fun with.

SPEAKING OF CIGARETTES, IS JIMMY STILL SMOKING 3 PACKS OF MARLBOROS A DAY?
Ugh, man…. At least! That’s a minimum, 3 packs. But, I think Lupus may be the smoking champion. I’ve never seen anyone smoke like this man. It’s crazy. I think probably like 4 packs a day.

OH MY GOD!
There’s never really one time that I don’t see him with a cigarette in his hand. I know right now he has one in his hand, and he’s not even anywhere near me, but he’s smoking wherever he is.

I FIGURED THAT The Bloodhound Gang PROBABLY HAVE A DECENT GROUPIE FOLLOWING.
It’s not bad!

OKAY, YOU KNOW THE GIRL WHO WANTS TO COME ON THE BUS AND BLOW THE WHOLE BAND?
Like, did we ever have one? Yeah, actually we have! We’ve never seen her again, and she didn’t perform the task because she was a complete skank and we weren’t that horny that night. Yeah, dude, it was just nasty. It was sorta your neck of the woods, actually. I don’t know if she was hard up and looking for some action, but, dude, she was a skank. I mean, you could tell, like the second she got on the bus. She had like sores… Well, they may not have been sores, but that’s what we thought. We were like, dude, get that fucking pig out of here. I’ll go jerk off.

BUT WHAT WE WERE WONDERING WAS, LIKE, YOU HEAR THE STORIES ABOUT THE ONE GIRL WHO GOES ON THE BUS AND BLOWS THE WHOLE The Bloodhound Gang, WHAT IS THE EJACULATORY PROTOCOL OR ETIQUETTE IN THAT SITUATION?
I mean, I guess it just sort of depends on who’s in line. When it comes down to that… There’s no boss. There’s no hierarchy, it’s just sort of, if you’re the first one on the bus and she’s ready to go, well, take your chance. That kind of shit’s happened before, where a particular groupie has had sex earlier in the night with a member of the supporting act, or a member of the band. Then later on that night, you end up having sex with her, you know, and then you realize like 4 months later, when you’re sitting around with the war stories and everything, and somebody says, “There was this girl in San Diego…”, and then you realize, that sounds an awful lot like the girl I was with! You kinda just try to erase that one from your memory. Sit back and roll one up, and just try to kill that short-term memory. It’s pretty disgusting; I gotta be honest with you.
