I don't know, I got into the guy because of BAS on the MySpace concert. I thought it was kinda gimmicky, but it was such a BEAUTIFUL gimmick that I looked into his other stuff. That song is probably just as much of a gateway to Folds as it is a deterent.

When it was released, he called it a B-side for "Landed". It did so well on iTunes, etc. that Ben now refers to it as a single. It's his current "thing" - what "Brick" was to the Five in some ways.

I never in my life thought that I'd hear a comparison of BAS to Brick that actually sorta works. Well done, Alex.
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.
