    The page is being all mucked up by a similarly named band that refers to themselves as a "second-rate Godsmack" now, awesome. It would be really cool if could separate bands with similar/the same names a bit better...

    I worked with Tim McVay briefly about 10 years ago. Very nice bloke. More cheerful at 7am than I ever was.

    people dont know what to listen to from this band.... tom verlaine (and most of the top tracks here) sucks next to: endless cigarette, gabriel's wings, fire music--to name a few. still some good ones in there "colour me grey" "game show" "prog one" "furthest from the sun" anyway, maybe im crazy, but dont trust magic happens to be their far and away best (i feel the opposite to be the case). instead, tell em we're surfin and furthest from the sun. just a huge fan... maybe i'm on to somethin maybe not
