32 Degrees in Hell

Taken from the 32 website - April 2004

+ Andrew

Name: Andrew Iovino
D.O.B.: 12/12/86
Role: Guitar
Influences: Nirvana , Smashing Pumpkins, Fugazi, The Vines, Leftover Crack
Comments: One of the most recent additions to 32's ever-expanding line-up, theres no two ways about it: Andrew is a weird kid. Whether golfing off of the roof of his house or having famously brief spats with his sister ("Shut up!" "You." ::End::), our new guitar player is eccentric to the max, but has the skills to back it up. Avoid direct eye contact.e.

+ Chris

Name: Chris Malone
D.O.B.: 8/9/83
Role: Trombone/Trumpet
Influences: Link 80, Skavoovie and the Epitones, Catch 22, Less Than Jake, Big D and the Kids Table, The Toasters, Crazy Baldhead Sound System, Mustard Plug, The Rudy Crew, The Jimmy Kickers, Sublime, The Pilfers, The Planet Smashers, Any and all perveyors of the Crack-Rocksteady Beat, The Aquabats, Step Lively, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Mad Caddies, NLS, The Scofflaws, Spider Nick and the Maddogs, Against All Authority, Taxicab Samurais, One Cool Guy, Bunjee Jambo, Goldfinger, Mephiskapheles, Mu330, Reel Big Fish, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Comments: 32's verbose trombonist is a scene kid in the best sense of the phrase: booking shows and moonlighting in EVERY SKA BAND EVER, is all in a day's work for "Mad Dog." With a knack for melodic horn lines to boot, Chris spends his spare times haunting OSB's message board and, presumably, trying to think of a better nickname.

+ Dave

Name: Dave Friedrich
D.O.B.: 12/09/83
Role: Bass
Influences: 311, Hidden Agenda, NOFX, The Offspring, Catch 22, Operation Ivy, Common Rider, Outkast, AFI, Anti-Flag, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Sublime, The Grass Roots, The Who, The Planet Smashers, The Misfits, The Specials, The Doors, System of a Down, The Toasters, Bloodhound Gang, Kriss Kross, The Fad, Randy, The Arrogant Sons of Bitches, Dead Kennedys, The Unsound, The Reform, Harold's Trousers, The Exploited, Mephiskapheles, Less Than Jake, Fear Factory, Pantera, Slayer, Soulfly
Comments: Tall, dark, and doofy, Dave-O is 32's backbone, providing a solid but versatile arsenal of low-end grooves. As likely to be driving around pumping Pantera as he is to be skanking it up to The Specials, our eclectic bassist is 32's lone "straight-edge" member, gaining the admiration of: no one.

+ Fish

Name: Jeremy Fisher
D.O.B.: 10/8/87
Role: Baritone Saxophone
Influences: Catch 22, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, Five Iron Frenzy, Oasis, Saves the Day, Movielife, Bouncing Souls
Comments: Every good ska band needs a killer bari sax player, and young Mr. Fisher is more than up to the task. Fish's amicable nature makes him super-easy to talk to, and it should be known that his parents are saints for picking him up from shows (because we sure as hell aren't driving out to Huntington).

+ Justin

Name: Justin Busch
D.O.B.: 11/8/83
Role: Alto Saxophone
Influences: Roumaki
Comments: Justin is better than you. And if you disagree, than you are probably right, for Justin is probably much worse than you. Either way, the point is, Justin is, and what Justin is, is Justin. Saxing the phone in ways only coltrane and you're younger brother could possibly understand, Justin is the high pitched mariah carey counterpoint to everything that is ska. One thing Justin isn't is ska, or Justin.

+ Mike

Name: Mike Hegarty
D.O.B.: 11/13/84
Role: Drums
Influences: AFI, George Clinton, Pantera, Wu-Tang Clan, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Moog Cookbook, Refused, Sublime, Tool, Zorak
Comments: Mike is a man of few words and even less patience. A monsterously, thunderous drummer, he is the band's true-blue metalhead, but when it comes down to it, he's best described as follows: "He likes punk. He likes ska. He likes hardcore. He likes your mother."

+ Neil

Name: Neil Callaghan
D.O.B.: Unknown
Role: Regurgitation
Influences: Turbonegro
Comments: A Haiku by N. Callaghan

Bacon stuck in beard,
Fantastic Cyclone of sex,
He likes bands you don't.

+ Paul

Name: Paul Furey
D.O.B.: 2/23/84
Role: Moog Prodigy, Korg X5D
Influences: The Reunion Show, Get Up Kids, Step Lively, Reggie and the Full Effect, The Hippos, RX Bandits, The Rentals
Comments: So, what does the "M" in "Paul M. Furey" stand for? "Moog?" "Money-Gettin'?" "Melto?" Either way, Paul's dry humor and organizational drive are clearly key to 32's continuing ska conquest. You can often find him at Reunion Show performances, comparing haircuts with Skully and staring lovingly at their keyboards. And by "keyboards" I mean "crotches."

+ Teller

Name: Dave Teller
D.O.B.: ??/??/85
Role: Trombone
Influences: Pink Floyd, World/Inferno Friendship Society, Catch 22, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Mephiskapheles, System Of A Down, Professor Plum, Mr. Bungle, Talking Heads, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Sublime, Traffic, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, Cake, The Dismemberment Plan, The Skatalites, Pink Floyd, Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass, Johnny Cash, Rage Against The Machine, Beastie Boys, Niel Young, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Slackers, Straighter Than Pete, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Premarital Sax, One Cool Guy, Emerson Lake and Palmer, The Who, Greatful Dead, The Police, Stone Temple Pilots
Comments: Often described by close friends as "funny," "charming," and "[word removed by request of Teller's mom]." Teller is 32's most improved band member. Despite there being little to no trombone on his beloved Pink Floyd albums. Teller rocks the horn all the same, and quite well at that. In his spare time, Teller performs with Harold's Trousers and does [another word removed by request of Teller's mom] (same difference.)


[November 12, 2004]

sorry it's been so long since the last update, but we've been touring non-stop. but don't worry, we'll be home soon. keep a lookout!

ok enough of that!

we decided to call it quits last march, and no one's updated the site since, apparently. don't worry, we have a few things up our sleeves (videos, mp3s, etc) -- so check back often.

as for now, here's an update as to current ex-member status:

Dave: Fine Print Neil: The Shemps Chris: Spider Nick and the Maddogs Andrew: Vis-a-Vis
