From NPR:

Weekend Edition Sunday, December 28, 2008 - 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.
