Queer bunch, THE POLYPHONIC SPREE. They finally retire their Druid/Hare Krishna robes/togas, only to replace them with... what? Why, black military garb, naturally. No doubt going for that artful compromise between Nazi stormtrooper and Kim Jong-il. I must say: These people positively reek of future mass suicide. Kool-Aid, anyone?
Dodgy fashion statements aside, how's about we take a trip down memory lane with TIM DELAUGHTER and his supporting cast of kooky converts....
