A new world! How exciting!!

In a phone conversation today, Fred objected to my description of the T-bergs as a novelty act. I suppose the term has a pejorative flavor, but I didn't mean it as an insult. I mean their act is unique, fresh, fun, but somewhat limited in its scope. As good as they are, I wouldn't go out of my way to see them again, because I can't imagine that they could grow much as a musical act. Therefore, it's a novelty. Plenty of great, inspired acts are novelty acts. The Langley Schools Music Project was a novelty record, but no less touching for it.
