yeah, well, it makes other people laugh, too, but not
necessarily for the same reasons...

and as for "hard to categorize" -- well, the entire output over
the band's history is impossible to slot in a single category.
which means dick all, if you ask me.  it might be better to
ask what's happening at a given moment with the band.  because
if with each "poof", if they are doing something interesting,
that's one thing...  and it's too early to say whether this
stage will work out.

actually, it was from 11pm til 2am that i wanted to be home in bed.
at 2:30 i was perfectly content to be watching the band.  :-)

>james, have you considered a career as an A & R guy? ;) ;)

well, if i was an a&r guy, i'd sign them, 'cause i love them.
which probably means i'd make a lousy a&r guy.  :-)
