Oh goodness is it really Monday morning? That must mean it's time to put an end to Gorgefest '09 (aka Christmas feast).
I stuffed my face on meats and sweets (but not sweetmeats), and took a much-needed hiatus from work and the blog.
But now I'm back in business (and ain't it grand). Where were we?
Stout formed in the mid-'90s, making them about 15 years old. That's ages and ages in band years. I talked to lead singer Thaddeus "Tad" Stamps, who told me the band got the name Stout because they used to drink a ton of Guinness. Niiiiiiiice.
Stout is signed to a British record label, and plans to tour Japan next year.
"We just want to keep playing music and enjoying life," Stamps said.
Rock on, Stout. Rock on.
