LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY BAND (Click link to refresh your memory.)

We are stymied as to why nobody recognized MINT IVE. After all, the band’s “self-financed release has sold to date over 500 copies in Nottingham.” Perhaps Robin Hood stole all the rest?

Interesting contrast in drummer birthdays this week. Born on the same day, March 20, were mega-percussionist Carl Palmer, the P in ELP. And drum minimalist Slim Jim Phantom, the P in Stray Cats. Drum battle!
