How Cage The Elephant got three songs on a UK TV show with little in the way of US mention intrigued me, as did a recent article in Brit rag Q that probably illuminated why that was the case. I'll invoke the sieve clause and figure that it was probably management that transplanted them. I'm intrigued as to whether it was their call to morph them into one hell of a Pixies cover band. There are worse bands to jock, and it worked for Nirvana. Frontman kid has definitely got a Cobain thing going on, hopefully sans shrewish significant other and arm candy problems. Kids should probably eat Thank You, Happy Birthday up with a spoon, older people will probably be a harder sell.
