Curious about the activities of this supposed SFA board, Spinner asked Rhys to elaborate on its due process.
"The SFA Banned Instrument Directive is shrouded in mystery, red tape and protocol," Rhys admits to Spinner. "It can take years for an instrument to travel the full disciplinary mile. For example, Daf's request to exile the pedal steel to furry oblivion has been pending since February 2003. An extended death row scenario was spared for the saxophone which was fast tracked out of the band's recorded output in 1995, after a deal was struck resulting in clause 76.3 permitting the 'sparing use of zoot style, dissonant or deep fuzz-ual sax, but strictly no solos.'"
Woah -- sounds serious. Or, you know, not so serious. In any event, is AutoTune considered an instrument in itself? Because, if so, we'd like to bring it to the consideration of the board. Oh wait, nevermind -- the Death Cab for Cutie committee is already all over that one.
