The “Take Back the Future” tour of Street Eaters and forgetters came through Olympia, WA on Monday, January 31st, 2011. Megan and Johnny were nice enough to record these monologue-style interviews…
Street Eaters are the kind of people you’re glad to meet. They’re sincere, energetic, and awesome. Tirelessly touring, playing in tons of bands, and while angry about plenty of important things, they come across as super hopeful and positive people. I dig it. Better yet, their music rules. It hits you well enough… a kind of low-fi pop.. but then it kinda grows over your brain and you hear more each time you listen. Smart, powerful, raw and uncompromising.

John Mink the other half of Street Eaters, is a prolific musician and misfit. He’s co-founder of the S.P.A.M. Records Collective and Geekfest, as well as a member of Fleshies, Triclops! and Street Eaters. Known by most as Johnny Geek, his sincere, straight-forward and political voice resonates with or without musical accompaniment.
Street Eaters are from Oakland, CA. This interview took place on January 31st, 2011.
