Earlier this year, we told you Ultimate Fakebook was back. And we meant it. The band's album Daydream Radio Is Smiling Static rejuvenated its fan base and got UFB out on the road again.

St. Louis is a very lucky place to be granted a visit from the power poppers from Manhattan, KS -- after all, only four cities get to host them on this tour, aptly named the "Four Parties" tour. The band will be appearing at the Firebird on Sunday, December 19.

I had a chance to chat with drummer Eric Melin to talk about the new record, his new band the Dead Girls, his career in movie criticism and work as creator of Scene Stealers, and much more.

Presented to you here is the (nearly) complete interview.
