This part does not make sense. "Judd Counsell was the drummer until December of 2005, when he departed from the band." Well December of 2005 has not happened yet therefore this is incorrect. Maybe it should be, "will be the drummer until December 2005", or "December 2004". I am not really sure but if anyone knows then they should like fix it and stuff. I really have no solutions.

This article in general needs a ton of work. Modeps 18:22, 30 January 2007 (UTC)


I would like to see a section that discusses the band's most common lyrical themes. Denver, the Mississippi River, Ybor City, getting high, Hallelujah, Catholicism, etc. Talk about the songs and albums' tendency to refer back to each other and in on themselves.

I see that Finn's page has exactly this section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jonfrailey (talkcontribs) 01:01, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Bad Links[edit]

Looks like the link to the interactive Twin Cities map is no longer any good. --Wombattery 20:39, 27 April 2007 (UTC)


I think that they fit into the categories of post-punk, and spoken groove. Anyone think of any more? They're a slight crossover, imho. Yeah, this page needs some defninite work... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 10:36, 28 April 2007 (UTC).


I personally don't know anything about them but a great deal of the information of this article is organized in an unencylopedic manner. For anyone who knows a lot about the band, it would be good to try to organize the information in a more acceptable manner. Glassbreaker5791 23:29, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Lolla 07[edit]

Neat tidbit but not necessary. I mean, don't get me wrong; I was there (front row, in fact), and it was great, but until people start talking about it, it shows up in blogs/media magazines, it doesn't belong here. 05:55, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Steely Dan?[edit]

Steely Dan is listed as an associated act, but the article does not mention that band (or Fagan or Becker) at all. Is it an error/joke? Mgnbar (talk) 14:12, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

After waiting two days, I guess I can remove it. Mgnbar (talk) 19:13, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
