By Kyle Unzicker
was going to be a good day. After school, I was going to head over to Jeremiah Joes in Ottawa to see Flatfoot 56. It was also the day that I had the most homework out of
any day of the year so farbut that didnt matter. No siree, I put my homework on hold. Because the power of Oi! called me.
It grabbed me by the shirt and said Listen Kyle, you may be a hardcore kid, but this punk band has got something. I have been
following this band for quite some time and I soon found out that Flatfoot is very different than your run of the mill pop/corporate/mall
punk band (by different I dont mean, Like, omigosh, the dude from Flatfoot is SO much hotter than the dude from Good
Charlotte!). Flatfoot 56 is Tobin (guitar, lead vocals), Kyle (bass, vocals), Justin (drums, vocals), and Josh (bagpipes,

Friends of Bob:
An Interview with Cole
Sean- Where did
the name "Friends of Bob" come from?
Cole- Haha don't ask that one right now, it's kind of
a long story that isn't even true. Ask something else to start off with.
Sean- Haha ok.
How about the other guys, how did you all become acquainted with playing music together?
Cole- Well Marshall and I had played together in a band
called Fiven Dime, along with Chris Kusek and Tim Gatza formerly of SWE. Marshall and I were cousins and had been jamming
together for about 3 years, so after Fiven Dime split up we heard about an incoming freshman at SBA named Chris Kelly that
was a pretty wild drummer so Marshall and I approached him about jamming. He knew us from Fiven Dime and was willing to give
it a shot. I remember our first practice. I think we went over "NIB" by Sabbath and "Keep Away" by Godsmack and then started
jamming on what would become our first original which would be called "Warren's Nocturne." We all seemed
to get along and were comfortable playing together, so we decided to start up a band.
Sean- You guys
ended up writing a lot of originals together right?
See what Cole has to spill about the band, their songs, and how their last
show went in Issue Three!!
Cause of JMU Riots Found
After much debate and investigation, the true cause of the
riots in the Forest Hills apartment complex where hundreds of JMU students reside has been
discovered. The official cause of the riot was a disagreement between police officers that looked to thin out the large party,
and a group of young partiers. When the Policemen came across a group of stragglers,
one of the Cops became quickly enraged and immediately asked one particular party go-er to show him some identification looking
to write him up. Singling out the one student, 20 year old Junior Ben Schumin,
the Policeman pulled out his nightstick and taped the student on his chest, pointing out that the content of his T Shirt was
incorrect and stupid, this lead to a verbal argument that lasted 5 minutes before turning ugly....
What was the argument all about?? To learn, check out
