could a ‘lovejones and the extra toes’ reunion be in the works?!

I don’t want to get everyone’s hopes up, but, on Saturday night the three surviving members of the seminal 80’s band “Lovejones and the Extra Toes” met at an out-of-the-way bar in rural New Jersey to discuss the prospect of future creative endeavors.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the groundbreaking work of these once-talented teens, I have been able to locate a few ultra-rare tracks. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Frere Jacques, One Eyed Teague, Yankee Doodle and an absolutely blistering cover of The Stooges’ I Wanna Be Your Dog.

Believe me – your world will never be the same once you hear their complicated rhythms and sophisticated vocal arrangements.

(According to the rules of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, bands cannot be considered for induction until 25 years after the release of their first record, so the group still has about 6 years to wait, unless, of course, special circumstances can be cited.)

    I think for the purposes of the R&R Hall of Fame, “first record” refers to a manufactured product for public sale. It doesn’t refer to recordings self-made on a cassette in a cheap boombox.

    But go ahead with the reunion. I think I can guess who would be paying for everything.

    Ted,

    It gets better if you keep listening. I at first also felt as though someone packed my ears with shit, but, when I listen to it today it’s like someone is washing my ear canals clean with a purifying blast of urine.

    Yes, and once the urine flushes out the shit, we’re ready to begin slowly making love to your ear holes. We have a patent on the business method. We call it, “The Three Day Breakdown.” First we get you off-balance. Then we tear away your self-esteem. And then we say that we love you and welcome you into the family. And the best part is, it
