Yeah, actually, I have. I kinda like them.

I wouldn't say that, but they do wear their influences on their sleeves,
so to speak.

Actually, I find the guys from Soup to be pretty down-to-earth in person,
they're just into showmanship on stage, that's all.
Musically, I find there are comparisons to Southpaw (if anyone's heard of
them), as they share a lot of the same influences. Stylistically they're
miles apart from Sloan or Eric's Trip, so I can understand why some people
on the list may not like them.

I don't think so.
