Sure, there could be an interesting psychological exposition of any band that chooses to name themselves Failure. And, sure, taking on that moniker sets up a legion of jokes.

He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
