When I was in grad school I had an office mate that was a pretty bright guy (OK… he was brilliant). His name was Frank Boscoe and he was on a full-ride university fellowship studying historical geography, but he also had been in a series of indie pop bands in the Pittsburg music scene. As he put it, “I made enough money for me to support my hobby of being in a band.”
As a grad student, he was pretty careful about telling people about his “alter ego.” He wanted to be taken seriously as an academic. Eventually his band (Vehicle Flips) ended up playing at Penn State, and I got a chance to check them out. I really like Frank’s music, and have ended up doing a couple of covers. This is one.
