Nichols and drummer Brandon Korch saw Pissed Jeans play at the Rock & Roll Hotel in April, and wanted to pay tribute. â€œWe were like, â€˜We can be in a band named Shat Shorts, and weâ€™ll have songs like â€˜Liveblogging the Loss of My Virginity,â€™â€ says Nichols. â€œIt started off as a â€˜This is gonna be kind of a funny song idea,â€™ and then from that I wrote the lyrics around that.â€
Sometimes a story just drops in your lap. Since I discovered Monument close to a year ago, I’ve been in touch with guitarist Anton Kropp. While doing an interview with him for my Newcity article on the new emo scene, Anton mentioned his new band, Shat Shorts. It turned out to be quite fortuitous. Read the piece on Shat Shorts here.
