"Another night/Twelve other shitty bands."
With that well-chosen couplet, Sunspot capture the boredom and disappointment that are also big parts of the rock and roll lifestyle. The lines come from "Mr. Foff," a sardonic paean to a tattooed, leather-jacketed longhair from out of town who vibed up the local scene for an hour or two.
But this is gentle satire. Even when singer/bassist Mike Huberty mocks Mr. Foff's penchant for drinking in the van with some overly dramatic classic-rock bellowing, the laughably reprobate rocker remains a lovable loser. No doubt, fans of Spinal Tap will recognize him instantly.
