Shitty Rambling

It’s not the best quality but here’s the speech Soupy gave at Riot Fest before Passing Through A Screen Door

(Oh and if you steal this I will fucking kill you.)

"Our first tour was in England–don’t ask me why–and our old keyboardist was lamenting on his disdain for the common pigeon. He pointed out that nobody likes a pigeon. No one wants one around, but they thrive everywhere in spite of that. A year later, we were reflecting on that idea and came to realize that, at that point in our career, we weren’t so different from the pigeon–no one really wanted us. No one wanted to feature us, sign us, book us, etc., but we were there anyway and we were growing. We booked our own tours. We marketed our own band. We started to realize we were the pigeons of this world, so a pigeon logo just made sense. " - Dan "Soupy" Campbell
