also drummed on many a mike oldfield album, AND produced Frida's "I Know There's Something Going On". he's also been in studio with eno on a number of albums, so the man must be respected for the drumming thing.

He makes crap music alone, but early genesis and his production work is great.

just sayin'.

A band got booed off the stage at Neumos?

Do tell...

That was the word from a good friend of mine who said she saw it go down at a show they opened up for Minus the Bear a few years ago.

Oh, dude. People weren't just hissing. There was a ton of people up on the balcony and in the middle of the crowd booing and yelling, "You suck!" Because, when you are Idiot Pilot, and you go on between Fall of Troy and Minus the Bear for some reason [cough cough major label cough cough], people are going to get angry about how they paid a lot to not see crap.

They didn't leave the stage, but they probably should have.

Have they even played Seattle since that show?

Man, that whole bill sounds like balls. In fact, I think I was at that show, but every time I try to remember it I just slip into a petite mal seizure.

That episode of This American Life is my favorite. I actually listened to it Sunday just after my Valentines day date told me she couldn't go out with me... ever.
