A couple of weeks ago while coming back from Vancouver BC, where they were opening for "of Montreal", they had a bad traffic accident, no one was seriously hurt but they lost their van, all their equipment and all their gear.
what is it with bands and van accidents? obviously, they drive lots of unsafe vans in unsafe conditions, but its amazing how many of these thingshappen.
and the song is pretty good, that keyboard gives it a Doors-esque vibe.
Heard this for the first time the other day - Spins by Potty Mouth -- this sounds like vintage early 90s indie rock

When I heard yesterday that Nelson Mandela had passed way I requested my favorite radio station KEXP.org to play "Free Nelson Mandela" by The Specials , which they did, beginning a musical tribute to Mandela. This version of it on YouTube is nice, it has a chronological slide show of Mandel's life. (I recomend watching it in full screen view)
