Interview: Reel Big Fish

Reel Big FishReel Big Fish is one of those bands that appeal to large audiences, both within and outside of the punk rock community. They’re loved by die-hard fans, ska kids and punk rockers. Hell, you could play their songs in preschool and get the toddlers skanking.

The band got “mainstream big” with a few solid hits during the 90’s and early 00’s. That’s probably when  most of you reading this got to know Reel Big Fish. These days the band releases their material independently, “Candy Coated Fury” (2012) being the last studio album to have come out.

So when we  got the chance to sit down with Aaron Barrett, the face and only remaining founding member of the band, we finally got to ask him about being Sell Out‘s on MTV and about his favourite Beer. I even asked for some fashion advice.
