For Today's Roll Call we call out Atlanta power pop extraordinaire, Gentleman Jesse Smith.
Who are you?
Describe yourself in three words.
Song Carpenter Extraordinaire.
Who dead or alive would most you like to meet?
Bruce Springsteen. My girlfriend met him at her work. She said he was supercool and asking about the music she was listening to. We went to see him on that last tour and it was amazing.
Who would you most like to slap in the face?
I'm not much for slapping faces. I'm more of a stern talking to kinda guy. That be said I would like to slap bad drivers, bad tippers and Bad Company (the band).
What song do you wish you had written?
Elvis Costello or Elvis Presley?
Elvis Presley. Fat of course.
LP, CD or MP3?
LP. what are those other ones?
If you could start one trend, what would it be?
I think I'm going to start LARPing. You know running around in the woods pretending to sword fight with some nerds. Anybody in?
If you could end one trend, what would it be?
Starting a garage band with no idea what garage music is. It did not start in 2001. Do some fucking homework.
With whom would you most like to play a game of spin the bottle?
A gentleman would not discuss these matters.
