Some fun facts

Occasionally we come across some fun or interesting facts about the band and its members. For example, the beagle in the “Mr. Blue” video is Elyse’s dog named “Bagel”.

Elyse’s birthday is July 10th and Jason’s is July 17th. Nothing like celebrating your birthday on a summer tour!

It’s Sloooooooow!

Happy 4th of July America! Greg reminds me once again to add some news: Gavin and Jason are moonlighting in a new band called My Fellow Astronauts. Karina guests on the new NUFAN record “Hard Rock Bottom”. Check the Sinead O’Connor song “This is a rebel song”!

Up To Date Music interview with Gavin

I was pointed to http://www.uptodatemusic.com/ for an interview with Gavin some time recently. Nice point about the “selling out” issue at the end:

But kids these days seem to think anything on TV is obviously a sell-out. It’s as though kids think you just wake up one day and say, “I wanna be a huge sell-out”, call up your label and you’re on MTV. Always cracks me up.

The transcript is here.
