Jim's Big Ego's new album free* is available for purchase via a "pay-what-you-like" system at bigego.com.
New Year's Eve is coming, and many folks will don fancy clothes, head out to a party and lose themselves in revelry. But not Jim Infantino.
"I believe that I'm going to go to a good friend's house," he says. "She's a photographer, and she throws great parties. And I'll probably stand around and have very little to say."
Infantino and his Boston-based band, Jim's Big Ego, chronicle the finer points of social ineptitude on a new song "I (Don't Know How To) Party." It's one of the tracks on the band's new album, free*.
Infantino spoke with Liane Hansen about the album, which contains a fake award acceptance speech, employs Fenway Park organist Josh Kantor and reiterates the group's (presumably facetious) claim to be "the Greatest Band in the History of Recorded Music" — just Google it.
"This is all the evidence I need," Infantino says.
