ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES are up to their old hijinks with the release of their 7th full length, Have Another Ball. In order to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their debut album, Have a Ball, the GIMMES are releasing the second instalment of recordings from the original session. The wildly popular Have a Ball was initially recorded as a double album, but the band decided that the two disc extravaganza might be too much rock for the uninitiated masses. Subsequently there is another album’s worth of material just waiting to be devoured by GIMMES fans, old and new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have Another Ball,
They turn boring songs into fun renditions and your favourite songs you will fall in love with all over again.
5.0 out of 5 stars having another ball,
had an awesome time listen’n to this CD, a definite good buy if you enjoy the best punk cover band there is! They take classic songs and remake them into something which is usually a lot better! definite good buy
