Many fans have asked, and we continue to give gauzy answers as to our puzzling nom de groove. Here is one part of the story: Nobody in the band is new to band dynamics. Even our youngest member has “been there, done that, doesn’t want the t-shirt.” We’ve all been kicked out of bands, or have had to do the kicking-out. Usually the out-kicking starts with some blablabla about how the individual and the band seem to be going in different directions. Inevitably, it ends with some phrase such as, “You know it’s nothing personal, right?” Clue: there are few endeavors in life that are more personal than playing music together. Band connections are social, intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual… ergo personal, by definition.
