Joiyua, what is that on Paul's shirt? Half deer, half bird mythological creature?

I'm actually enjoying the Einstein coif. Very becoming of a mad scientist. :D

Is that Binzer Brennan on the left ?
Was he the stickman (in an official Bellie capacity) at any stage ?

I think it was really just long-term session work for the most part.

He was the live drummer for the NAI tour, and the early part of the MiM touring. Paul played the drums on both records except for Tongue on MiM which was played Mr. Brennan (and there might have been a second song by him on MiM too? dusty memory). He wasn't ever cited as a band member officially that I ever saw, and he was never mentioned in songwriting credits. He appeared in a couple of the music videos and a few press shots like the above - but not in many.

Yeah, I think it was a deer-type thing. He wore it other publicity shots too, where you could see it better. In that one it kind of looks more like a coffee stain :lol:

I don't ever remember Binzer being more than, yeah, long-term session for them. It's the same with Tim...or maybe that's more of a grey area now. Has Tim ever had a writing credit?

Well, I'm sure the whole band has atleast a good decade on me. But, I'm of the firm belief that you're not old til your back in diapers. :)

Yeah, I guess they'd have a decade + a year or two on you. Hehe, I like your thinking :) How's your jaw these days?
