No, it was Mike. He bought his first proper bass guitar with his first paycheck. He worked as a clam shucker there from 1988 to late 1991 as I recall. Billie flipped pizzas and sold newspaper subscriptions.

Mike recorded the album with Screeching Weasel in 9 days from June 14th to June 24th, 1994. During this time he flew out to NY and back to tape the Letterman show with Green Day. He never performed live with SW though.
