DS Interview: 88 Fingers Louie’s Denis Buckley discusses new album Thank You For Being A Friend

88 Fingers Louie formed in 1993 in Chicago. Now, as in earlier incarnations, 88 Fingers Louie is an often intensely personal, politically astute band. Also, the kind of band that could somehow take those two things and make them fun. When they dissolved in 1999, they were one of a handful of bands from that time period I always felt had at least another great album left in them. Thank You for Being a Friend, released by Bird Attack Records in June, proved that to be the truth. I had a chance to speak with vocalist Denis Buckley as the band was gearing up for their European tour.
