Actually, I agree with you, grounded. I loved Static & Silence. "Summertime" has ended up on many a mixtape of mine. I wonder what happened to them...?

From AMG:
After the release of Blind, the Sundays were quiet for the next several years. It would be five years until The Sundays would release another album. Wheeler and Gavurin got married, had a baby girl named Billie, and yearned for a normal life during this time. This obviously explained their absence from the music world, but it was well worth the wait. The Sundays again achieved mainstream success with their third album, Static & Silence (1997), thanks to the popular hit single "Summertime."
Looks like they tried to leave the game after Blind. Maybe Static & Silence was a one off? Maybe they only made it because they needed money?

Well, creepy, I think he's basically just being insane.

From the NMH official website:
Jeff has been working on a collection of short stories. He also just joined the circus and wants to make a movie about snails.
The really scary thing is that I kind of believe this.

Yeah, we'll be hearing *plenty* about Hot Hot Heat soon...I'm sure whatever major they're on is planning a Franz Ferdinand/Killers/Strokes-like onslaught of promotion. Most likely we'll all be sick of hearing about them within the year.
