While I was never a member of the Seattle art-rock band Argo I had become their de facto fill-in member when their former drummer Trent couldn't make a show. When Trent was finally kicked out of the band for his truancy I stepped into his chair, albeit briefly, to record drum tracks for Argo's current EP Attack of the Firebots. Argo's bassist Jon Wooster and I played together in Seattle power-pop band The Capillaries. Argo's great. They have a Radiohead vibe to their sound but they also have a passionate energy that many other studied art-rock bands just don't have.
