October 8

First, an announcement-

I'm 45 days in, toward my intended goal of 365 consecutive entries. However, this has become more intensive than I had ever intended. So, in an effort not to give up this blog altogether, I'm attempting a change in format.

On to the blog...

Happy Birthday to Gregori Chad Petree, guitarist and guy vocals for Shiny Toy Guns. How did I miss this band in 2007? Did these guys steal the Killers' best stuff when they weren't looking?

Anyway, Shiny Toy Guns are kinda new, but pretty mercenary. They've recently covered "Major Tom" and "Burning For You" for use in Lincoln automobile commericals. They're also doing a song for a Disney film next year, which has promptly put them on the Bowling For Soup/Smash Mouth express lane.
Here's a song from four years, two albums, and one female singer ago:
