Less Than Jake have been a ska staple for me since I saw them in 1996, shortly before their album Losing Streak came out, so it was a no brainer to grab time to interview them during last year’s Warped Tour, despite the fact that they didn’t have any songs in Rock Band at the time. We set up this interview as a kind of introduction to the Rock Band Network, but it turned out they already had a really good idea of how the process worked, so I left with my hopes high that we’d someday see LTJ in RB.
Fast forward to 10 months later, and the fine authoring folks at Rock Gamer have finally delivered on my year long dream by adding 2 songs by Less Than Jake (“Goodbye, Mr. Personality” and “Younger Lungs”) to the Rock Band Network! Even though the interview is nearly a year old, I still think it holds up as a cool example of a band that is both informed and interested in RBN and the hoops that they sometimes have to jump through to get there. Enjoy!
