Phone Home: ? and the Mysterians

Ben Edmonds, MOJO, February 1997

"WHOA! IT'S WILD that you called today. Little Frank, the original organist in The Mysterians, has just rejoined the band. He was down in Texas for years and years, but I convinced him to move back up [to Michigan]. You're not gonna believe how good it sounds with Little Frank back in the picture. It's inspired me so much that I'm thinking of doing a video of '96 Tears' in a garage, because that's still where we practise at. We are a garage band, truly. You haven't heard from us in a while mainly because the music industry is the way it is. It's a rotten business, but music is my life. I'm not doing what everybody else does, and never have.
