The Last To Know: Heavy Vegetable back together!

OK, so maybe not Heavy Vegetable, but the members of Heavy Vegetable now called Other Men. Story here on

...Only, Other Men has roots deeper than any of
Crow's other acts; the trio was once Heavy Vegetable, a band prone to "hyper
spastic mood-swings" that released two records before their breakup in '95.

The resulting story's a good one: Drummer
Manolo Turner became a gardener; bassist Travis Nelson took up residence in a
monastery in Thailand with silent monks, disappearing for years (you can't make
this shit up); and Rob went on to become our hero. Eleven years later, they got
the band back together for Wake Up Swimming, the first release on Rob's label
Robcore Records -- and yes, we absolutely adore it.

Ooh, I can feel it now. Other Men Headline MayDay, San Diego. fingers crossed.
