FAR is back! It's only been a decade. Not like I missed them or anything...
Seriously, I'm fucking stoked as a motherfucker. Far is going by the moniker Hot Little Pony while they get together and play a few shows in Southern California later this month. They've also got a nifty little MySpace page for Hot Little Pony with a rump-thumping cover of, what else, Ginuwine's "Pony". It's actually getting some serious airplay in Sacramento right now, to which the band posted that it was by FAR the best airplay they've ever received. I get jokes! Hahaha!
It's awesome that this track is getting some love, but why this band never really broke through is FAR beyond me. That's my joke. Good, no? Tin Cans With Strings To You and the nearly flawless Water & Solutions are timeless. I was even lucky enough to pick up the reissued Listening Game and Quick, both with bonus tracks. Go to www.jonahmaternga.com visit singer Jonah's Yard Sale. Some great music.
Remember, without Far there would be no Will Haven and no Deftones.
To celebrate, check this...FAR is back!
