Shout Out

by Jerry Scott & Jim Borgman

One of the fun things you can do with a comic strip is to use it as a big ‘ol megaphone to holler almost any damn thing you want. In the case of yesterday’s strip I used it to say hi to my old friend, Jeff Miller. Jeff is a real Renaissance Dude, capable of maintaining a highly successful career by day and fronting a rock band by night.

Well, the mention of Psych 101 in yesterday’s Zits got the attention of Cory Finley, the Music Blogger at the Arizona Republic. Cory writes,

 

Psych 101, as it turns out, is a real Phoenix-area four-piece, playing what lead singer Jeff Miller calls “moody alternative pop.”

Miller, 53, practices law with Miller Weber Kory LLP His bandmates, Steve Evans, George Catone and Kevin Veillette, are another lawyer, an architect and a schoolteacher, respectively.

The band, Miller says, is “something we do to stay sane.” Their day jobs prevent them from touring, but the band is more than a casual hobby: They’ve been playing together for 10 years, and their 2007 album “Attachment Disorder” earned a rave from the Phoenix New Times.

 

Here’s a cut from their “Bipolar” CD called “People In The Rain”.

Gee. Now I feel all Don Kirshner.
