spotted j last night at the continental in nyc sitting in on drums with his friend jimy shield’s new group. jimy was formerly of lotus crown and before that a group called rollerskate skinny. kevin is jimy’s older brother. also in the group was suzanne thorpe who was (is?) the flute player in mercury rev. cool show.
i also heard from someone at the show that j turned down an appearance with belle and sebastian that same night as they were going to do a cover of "freakscene" at their show and they wanted j to do a cameo. if anyone went to that show or knows of a recording of them doing the cover, let me know!
