The Queers total tour van on the way to show in Indianapolis; rent vehicle to continue tour w/ The Dwarves

Some unfortunate news coming from The Queers‘ camp tonight… The legendary pop-punk band got in an accident and totaled their tour van on the way to Indianapolis, Indiana, for the first show on their North American tour with The Dwarves. But don’t worry! The guys are all okay and they plan to carry on with the tour in a rented van. Here’s a message the band’s tour manager posted on their Facebook page:

“Our apologies to the fans in Indianapolis, IN tonight. On the way to the show the band was in an accident on I-65 just north of Nashville. The van is totaled but everyone is OK. Again, everyone is OK. The band has rented a vehicle and collected their gear and will start the tour tomorrow in Madison, WI at High Noon Saloon. Indianapolis, we will make it up to you somehow.

Joe Queer is a trooper. Not once did he talk about canceling this tour and we tried very hard to make it to Indy but there just wasn’t enough time in the day.

The Dwarves are still playing in Indy tonight. Don’t miss it. Other than that, don’t start rumors– this tour is happening. Queers and Dwarves… incredible!”

The Queers last released “Back To The Basement” in 2010 through Asian Man Records. Since then, they have put out multiple re-releases of prior albums, including limited edition vinyl reissues of “Don’t Back Down”, “Move Back Home”, “A Day Late and a Dollar Short”, and “Later Days and Better Lays”.

Dangerous Dave’s (The Queers, The Bugs) bass gets stolen

Dangerous Dave (bassist of The Queers and frontman of The Bugs) unfortunately had his bass (pictured to the left) stolen at a recent show. He posted on the Queers’ Facebook page, saying:

“You fuck with the bean- you fuck with the whole enchilada. Give it back.

My bass was stolen along with 3 other guitars last night. I’ll post the other ones too. This is a 73′ P Bass. Sunburst. Not the greatest pic. It has notches on the back of the neck. Please look out for it.

If you took it, just return it.”

Random Cover Song: The Queers – “I Enjoy Being a Boy” (Banana Splits cover)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover song comes from The Queers and their rendition of “I Enjoy Being a Boy”. The song was originally performed by The Banana Splits, a fictional 1960’s children’s group composed of anthropomorphized animals (the song itself was sung by Joey Levine, of The Ohio Express). The Queers recorded their cover for their 1998 album Punk Rock Confidential, which was on Hopeless Records.
