Not strange when you know that Derek and I both are rabid Kiss fans, and 
as Katrina pointed out, Sloan (and also TH and a few other local bands) 
are quite Kiss-influenced.  There was even a Kissmas Party last year at 
the Deuce, very cool.
I prefer the old Kiss tribute album, but I haven't had much chance to play 
the new one.  After waiting through over a year of hype on the Kissarmy 
list, and all the bands who wound up not playing on it (NIN being a big 
loss) it was a disappointment to me.

Well, does anyone remember the name of that little underground pop 
festival we had last year? :)  The word has been bounced around in several 
articles to describe our budding alternative scene and I'm pretty sure was 
suggested as a title for what became the Cod Can't Hear cd.  Please 
correct me if I'm wrong. :)
