New name but same old 10-pack to play on 10 while you fix your hair for the weekend revelry. This Friday however, it's the first 10 random tracks on the iPod--and we'll be back on Tuesday with more of the same: iPod's set to stun...

TVD | Friday @ Random

However un-randomly, the Jellyfish arc comes full circle and to a close this week with Imperial Drag--a band borne from the ashes of the band itself. Jellyfish keyboardist/songwriter Roger Manning's subsequent outfit pairs him with Eric Dover, the guitarist brought aboard for Jellyfish's live dates in support of 'Spilt Milk.' Although quite OK, listeners looking for that unique something (me...ahem) that Jellyfish possessed might be left scratching their heads--which is unfair, but there you have it. Imperial Drag lasted for just this release and a tour.

MORE interesting for me is the band Andy Sturmer contributes to these days. I think they bear a strong resemblance to one band in particular, but I just can't put my finger on it. Hmm.

Imperial Drag - 'Breakfast' By Tiger (Kiss It All Goodbye) (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Boy Or A Girl (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Dandelion (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Scaredy Cats & Egomaniacs (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - The Man In The Moon (Mp3)
