The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are Back

Well, after four years the “band is getting back together”. They announced last month they were going to play a 10th Hometown Throwdown in Boston the last week of December.

I’ve been a Bosstones fan for as long as I can remember, and they are actually the inspiration for the “MightyB” moniker. Way back in the day when I signed up for AOL 1.0 (1993 I believe) I was in need of a screen name. Well, the best I could do at the time was come up with MightyB as a play on the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Brian. Ingenius, I know, but whatever, it stuck. Now, an amazing 15 years later, I’m still using the name on IM and own the domain….
Where has the time gone I ask?

The band will be releasing a new album before the Throwdown consisting of four new songs, unreleased material and vinyl b-sides. Speaking of Vinyl, I still have my “Question the Answers” record that I got on release night at Newbury Comincs in Harvard square. My friend Larry and I went, bought the album and met the band. I’ll have to dig up that photo somewhere and scan it.

You can pick up the new CD at Newbury Comics
