For their radio show ‘The Retrospect’ idobi.com went through a bunch of Bands that broke up (like American Football, Northstar and Envy On The Coast) and they would like to see come back. What do you think? Would you like to hear new music from Gabes old Band Midtown?
For the past few years, no band reunion in the pop punk scene has been speculated more than for Midtown. Forming in 1998, the four dudes from New Jersey were quick to gain a following, landing them a coveted album deal with Drive Thru Records. After seeing success providing the opening theme to MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle Of The Sexes, the band released their second album on Drive Thru/MCA and third through Columbia Records. The band toured relentlessly up until calling it quits in 2005. Each member went on to new ventures, most notably singer Gabe Saporta forming the infamous Cobra Starship. Fast forward to 2014 – Cobra Starship seems to have fizzled, demand for a Midtown reunion is still high, and Saporta is back to his pop punk ways singing in a Mexican restaurant with fellow New Jersy-ians Saves The Day at 3am. Marking 10 years since the release of their last album, this seems like the perfect time for Midtown to reunite. Will John D., creator of Skate and Surf, finally make his promise a reality and get the band to reunite? We’re still waiting for the news. Hopefully the band manage to get it together, because “hey, it’s just Rock and Roll”, right?
Abimbola “Bim” Fernandez is featured on ‘Nice Guys Finish Last’ and is also the girl on the cover of Cobra Starships album “Hot Mess”. She now talked to NY Post and of course mentioned Gabe.
Fernandez immersed herself in concert culture, befriending members of the pop-punk band Forever the Sickest Kids. They, in turn, introduced her to Gabe Saporta, lead vocalist of Cobra Starship. “I was sitting in their dressing room, and I didn’t know anyone, [so] I was just pretending to fidget through my purse,” says Fernandez. “I had a [black] Centurion AmEx, and it fell on the floor. Gabe picked it up and goes, ‘Whose is this?’ And I go, ‘It’s mine.’ And he goes, ‘Who are you?’ ”
The encounter fortuitously led to a featured role on the track “Nice Guys Finish Last” from the band’s 2009 album “Hot Mess.”
While waiting for his flight, Gabe decided to kill time by tweeting. He talked to a bunch of lucky Fans and also shared two Selfies.
