I knew you were going to say that. <g>
Here's the deal, though. I read in an interview that Jason said that the
band name was M.E.O. but that the record label slapped "Songs:Ohia" on the
topspine because they figured nobody would know who the hell they were. If
you look at the CD, though, nowhere on it does it say Songs:Ohia. At least
that's what I read.
Not that it matters much. Once this all get settled he'll probably change
the band name to something else like "Handbags;Try Me French".
steve, who as much as he thinks JM can do now wrong really is starting to
wonder if anyone can sound that much like Neil Young and still claim it to
be original material
