Fig Mints (of Your Imagination) is some guy named Bobby Rogan. An often seen name within the Cozy Home collective based in Utica, NY, USA, he’s been involved in such bands as Euro Language Abusive, Electric City Subway, Plural Noun, and of course, the legendary Fucking Flame. When not playing someone else’s songs, he prefers to write his own, for what it’s worth. He started writing songs out of boredom while working as a janitor, and since then has recorded five albums of original material, mostly inspired by drugs, drinks, and of course, girls. Sprinkle a little self-loathing in there, and you get what you hear. While his talents as a musician are amateurish, at best, his ability to churn out album after album to little or no reaction whatsoever is inspiring to every indie-rock throwback this side of the Atlantic. We could all learn a lesson from Bobby, this living testament to doing what you want to do for yourself, despite an overwhelming body of evidence pointing to the probability that you’re wasting your time. What that lesson is, is anyone’s guess. Suggestions are welcome.
